New Advancement in the Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) Materials

by A. A. Vahora and J. J. Henry, L. Puglia, High Performance Polymer Division, Arkema Inc.

For many years, PVDF polymers have been used in high-performance cable applications including plenum communication cables, automotive cables, aviation and military cables and appliance wiring. The selection of PVDF polymers is largely due to a unique combination of properties, including flame and smoke resistance, abrasion resistance, high flexibility, chemical resistance, outdoor weathering resistance and the ability to be e-beam crosslinked. The wide range of useful properties provided by PVDF polymers helps make them a valuable tool for resolving unique problems under challenging applications. PVDF polymers available include both homopolymers and copolymers.
