Wire and Cable
Kynar Flex® fluoropolymer resins are used to make jacketing material for transportation applications where flexibility, toughness, and resistance to chemicals and corrosive fluids are important. Kynar® and Kynar Flex® resins are processible on standard polyolefin equipment, enabling easy processing.
Kynar® PVDF also offers high temperature performance, flexibility, flame retardancy, and aggressive chemical, abrasion and cut-through resistance.
Lithium Ion Battery
EV batteries demand extreme performance, especially for weight reduction, life expectancy, safety, and charging time. Kynar® PVDF has been used in the produciton of lithium ion batteries since the 1990's and continues to lead the industry as a high performance electrode binder solution.
Key benefits of Kynar® PVDF binder solutions:
- High adhesion allows for reduced binder loading and higher active material content. This produces a higher capacity battery
- Electrochemical stability and inertness produces a longer life expectancy
- Improved safety can be achieved thanks to exceptional oxidation and chemical resistance
- Adapted swelling behavior enhance ionic exchange levels, enabling faster charging time.
