What is KYNAR®?

Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) resin is one of the most stable and pure commercial resins. It resists strong acids, solvents, and reducing agents and is used in several industries, including electrical and electronic manufacturing, chemical processing, pulp and paper, and transportation.

KYNAR® Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) and KYNAR Flex® PVDF are highly chemically resistant fluoropolymers used in piping, tubing, vessel fabrication, molded valves and fittings, tower packing, nozzles and other items for corrosive fluid handling. Their chemical resistance and high purity make them ideal for applications that deal with contact with high-purity water, acids, chlorine, halogenated solvents, and petrochemical mixtures. The natural flame retardancy and flexibility of these resins lead to many uses in the jacketing of fiber optic cables, fiber optic raceways, and copper cables.
