Technical datasheets



This highly pure, fluorosurfactant-free, semi-crystalline resin is extremely resistant and offers a number of advantages.
Kynar polyvinylidene fluoride is a tough, engineering thermoplastic that offers a unique balance of properties. It has the characteristic stability of fluoropolymers when exposed to harsh thermal, chemical, and ultraviolet environments.
Kynar resins are readily melt-processed by standard methods of extrusion and injection / compression molding.

At elevated temperatures Kynar PVDF can be dissolved in polar solvents such as organic esters and amines. This selective solubility is an advantage in the preparation of corrosion resistant coatings for chemical process equipment and long-life architectural finishes on building panels.
By 2024, ARKEMA plans to double its PVDF production in France.


Key Attributes of Kynar PVDF include:

  • Mechanical strength and toughness
  • High abrasion resistance
  • High thermal stability
  • High dielectric strength
