PVDF Properties and Material Options
Homopolymer PVDF– has higher strength and stiffness and has a higher heat deflection temperature than copolymer PVDF.
Copolymer PVDF– is less stiff but has superior impact and stress crack resistance.
Typical properties of PVDF
|Izod impact (notched)
||ft-lbs/in of notch
|Heat deflection temperature @ 264 psi
|Maximum continuous service temperature in air
|Water absorption (immersion 24 hours)
|Coefficient of linear thermal expansion
