PVDF Unfilled

PVDF Unfilled


What is the Material: PVDF Unfilled is a semi-crystalline material.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring high density, strength, chemical resistance, resistance to UV radiation, and low moisture absorption.

Other Considerations: It is used in the chemical processing industry. This material is stiffer and resists cold better than other fluorocarbon materials, such as PTFE (Teflon).
