Kynar® PVDF Super Thick vs Rubber

Kynar® PVDF Super Thick vs Rubber


PVDF, also know as, polyvinylidene fluoride or Kynar® has good high dielectric strength and excellent mechanical properties over a broad range of temperatures, allowing for a thin wall insulation.

Kynar® fluoropolymers are specified by end-users across the world for their outstanding combination of properies:

  • Outstanding resistance to sunlight/UV exposure
  • Tremendous chemical resistance to a wide range of aggressive chemicals
  • Radiation resistance
  • Excellent burn characteristics / flame and smoke properties
  • Easy processing on industry-standard equipment and easy post-processing such as welding and fabrication
  • Extremely high purity for the most demanding applications
  • Extremely high electrochemical stability
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • High temperature rating: RTI 150º C
In the pictures above we can see how a rubber coating loses its insulating properties after one month, while a Kynar® PVDF coating maintains its insulating properties after even four months.
