MCP Engineering Plastics Limited are PVDF Rod suppliers and PVDF Rod manufacturers.
PVDF or Polyvinylidene Fluoride is a semi-crystalline structured, highly inert, tough and stable thermoplastic fluoropolymer. PVDF Rod has a melting point of 175°C and service temperatures of up to 150°C. Its properties consist of excellent chemical resistance, high crystallinity with good thermal stability, without sacrificing on other mechanical properties like most other materials in the same family. PVDF Rod compliments PEEK and Polyamide as one of the best radiation resistance plastics available.
Sold under various brand names, but most commonly recognised as Kynar™. It can be manufactured with supplemented additives and melt flow rates, to increase the processing capabilities and heighten properties for specific applications. PVDF Rod is a versatile material that can be used in chemical applications, FDA applications and some demanding applications.
Typical applications of components machined from PVDF Rod include; medical packings, anti-corrosion linings and corrosion resistant machined components.
