PVDF Machining


PVDF plastic usually referred to as polyvinylidene fluoride or Kynar®, is a crystalline thermoplastic high molecular weight polymer. It has great UV stability, and excellent chemical, flame, and abrasion resistance. For all applications, Upland Fab offers precision-machined PVDF plastic parts and components because to its years of experience dealing with this unusual material.

Features & Advantages of Materials Made with Polyvinylidene Fluoride

This plastic is resistant to corrosion and chemical deterioration and has excellent thermal stability at operating temperatures as high as 300°F (149°C). PVDF plastic is easy to weld using thermoplastic welding technology and has great tensile strength and impact resistance.

It is possible to find homopolymer and copolymer formulations of polyvinylidene fluoride. Compared to copolymer PVDF, homopolymer PVDF offers superior strength, stiffness, and heat deflection. Although less rigid than its homopolymer counterpart, copolymer PVDF plastic is more impact and stress fracture resistant. FDA-compliant grades of PVDF are offered for both kinds.

The distinctive qualities of PVDF plastic make it a perfect material for a variety of applications. Chemical tank liners, process equipment, semiconductor components, pipe flanges, fittings, seals, and gaskets are a few common uses.

PVDF Machinery

We use multi-axis machining technology to assure quality and accuracy while manufacturing PVDF plastic components. Our ability to maintain tight tolerance in complicated geometries and guarantee flawless repeatability from the first item to the last are both made possible by our CNC machining skills. Handling and fixturing take very little time, and very sophisticated pieces are frequently finished in a single operation for short turnarounds.

We can manufacture polyvinylidene fluoride components directly from your CAD models using DPD/MBD procedures (Digital Product Definition/Model-Based Definition). Utilizing your digital design files improves accuracy and efficiency while reducing mistakes. As a result, the parts are cheaper and of superior quality.
