Kynar® PVDF and Kynar Flex® PVDF are chemically resistant polymer materials that are excellent at handling wastewater, acids, chlorides, and have the added benefit of high resistance to the effects of radiation. Components made from Kynar® PVDF include piping, pumps, valves, fittings, tubing, filtration equipment, coatings and holding tanks. For over 50 years Kynar® has been used to construct chemical containment components for uranium and plutonium based technologies at major processing facilities throughout the United States.
Arkema Inc. offers a range of technical polymers under the tradenames of Kynar® PVDF, Pebax® elastomer, Rilsamid® PA12, and Rilsan® PA11, that are suitable for food contact applications. Applications requiring high temperature, high chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, ductility, flexibility, high mechanical strength, and sunlight resistance can all be met with one or more of these polymers. All of Arkema’s technical polymers are thermoplastic and can be injection molded, compression molded, extruded and applied as a powder coating. Articles such as piping, tubing, fittings, pumps, tanks and vessels, belting, nozzles, and fasteners can be made from this polymer group to meet special needs in the processing of meat, fish & poultry, dairy products, acidic juices, beverages (hot and cold), sauces, and alcoholic spirits.
Renewable Energy India Expo intends to accelerate the growth of India’s Renewable Energy sector and contribute to the country’s sustainable economic development. Arkema is promoting Kynar® Film used for photovoltaic backsheet providing opacity to UV light and excellent weatherability.
For over 50 years, Kynar® polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin, has been a choice for demanding applications in wire and cable design. Kynar Flex® polymers exhibit 150C UL rating, high flexibility, chemical resistance, toughness, and flame retardance, often required for high end cable jacketing applications. Kynar® PVDF and Kynar Flex® PVDF can be used for wire insulation or cable jacketing, and the unique molecular structure allows it to be irradiated for special performance. New product offerings such as Kynar® 2620FC foam concentrate and new low temperature impact grades of Kynar Flex® PVDF bring an exciting extension of the product line that will be interesting to cable designers.
