Polyvinylidene Fluoride for Piping Operating Under Highly Corrosive Conditions


Pipes in Extreme Conditions

Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1979 Brigthon


The high crystal energy of PVDF combined with the strength of the C-F bond make it probably the strongest of the fluoropolpers. Chemical resistance is outstanding, as one would expect of a fluoropolper, so the material has a useful combination of properties to offer in the field of piping. A brief summary of the properties relevant to piping will make this clear.
