PVDF POLYVINYLIDENE FLUORIDE
Resistant to heavy loads, both in tension, flexure and pressure
Because PVDF has both a high mechanical strength and stiffness and a high abrasive resistance and low coefficient of friction, it is also suitable for the manufacture of machine parts. PVDF falls into fire class B1 (according to DIN 4102), which means that the material is flame-retardant and self-extinguishing. In addition, PVDF is fully approved and certified for contact with food according to the European 10/2011 Food Grade legislation.
This is essential in, for example, the canning and food industry, meat and fish processing companies and other applications where non-toxic behavior, the environment and hygiene are important. Access Plastics Ltd holds certification for the Food and Drugs Administration.
