PVDF Machined Parts

A Guide to PVDF - CNC Milled & Turned Parts: Properties, Applications and Design Considerations

What is PVDF?

PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) is a high performance engineering plastic. It is a relatively new fluoropolymer best regarded for its chemical resistance. Although similar to PTFE, the mechanical features such as tensile stress and compressive strength are notably higher. Where PTFE trumps PVDF is in resistance to high temperatures (up to 300°C as opposed to 150°C for PVDF).

Main Attributes of PVDF:

  • Outstanding chemical resistance to acids and alkali
  • High density
  • Mechanical strength and toughness
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Good UV and weather resistance
  • Flame retardant
  • Very good weldability
  • Food compliant
  • Wide operating temperature range (-50°C to 150°C)
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Low thermal conductivity
