Symalit PVDF

Extruded Grade • Natural Color




SYMALIT PVDF 1000 is a highly crystalline unreinforced fluoropolymer combining good mechanical, thermal and electrical properties with excellent chemical resistance. Its property profile makes SYMALIT PVDF 1000 a versatile engineering material, especially suitable for the manufacture of components for the petrochemical, chemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, food, paper, textile and nuclear industries.

  • High max. allowable service temperature in air
  • Good mechanical strength, stiffness and creep resistance (better than other fluoropolymers)
  • Excellent chemical and hydrolysis resistance
  • High toughness, also at low temperatures
  • Good sliding properties and wear resistance
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Physiologically inert (suitable for food contact)
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Outstanding UV and weather resistance
  • Inherent low flammability
  • Fairly good resistance against high energy radiation (much better than other fluoropolymers)
