The benefits of PVDF 1000 applications

  • High chemical resistance.
  • High-temperature resistance approx. + 150 ° C.
  • Not attacked by acids, bases, and most organic solvents.
  • Not degraded by UV radiation.
  • Not attacked by microorganisms.
  • Good electrical and dielectric properties.
  • Very low water absorption.


The restrictions of PVDF 1000

  • Poor creep resistance.
  • High density relative to other plastics.
  • Attacked by molten alkali metals, fluorine gas, oxygen difluoride, and chlorine trifluoride.
  • Low abrasion resistance.
  • Limited load capacity.

PVDF 1000 thermoplastic – specific properties

Polyvinylidene fluoride, commonly abbreviated to PVDF, is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic fluoropolymer that is most commonly used in such things as:

  • electrical applications in aircraft,
  • robots
  • electrical machines
  • gaskets
  • electrical insulation materials.

Being invented in 1969 by Dr. Heijji Kawai, PVDF became known as a tough, stable fluoropolymer with distinct engineering advantages and a good performance-to-cost ratio. Also, as an organic ferroelectric material, PVDF 1000 and its copolymers typically show better overall performance than their counterparts.
