What are Kynar® PVDF polymers ?

Arkema’s Kynar® PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) and flexible copolymers are world famous for their balance of easy-processing and tremendous resistance and durability. With manufacturing facilities in each of the major regional markets – North America, Europe, and Asia, we continue to invest in order to supply our customers globally while servicing them locally.

Kynar® PVDF polymers are considered exceptionally easy fluoropolymers to process - requiring little in the way of specialized equipment. There is a very wide "processing window" (a wide difference between the melting temperature and the degradation temperature). 


Extreme Properties

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
