What is a PVDF finish?

What is a PVDF finish?

PVDF coating (polyvinylidene fluoride) or Kynar® coating is a pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer that is non-reactive and possesses multiple coating benefits. Kynar® PVDF coatings for steel, aluminum, and other metals also have a high dielectric strength, excellent resistance to weathering elements in harsh environments.

Can PVDF be applied to steel?

PVDF coatings are applied to various metal substrates including aluminum, carbon steel and stainless steel.

What is the difference between PVDF and powder coating?

PVDF coating is a resin based liquid coating system. Powder Coating is an electrostatic process in which the electrostatically charged powder is sprayed on the metal surface. PVDF coatings have higher durability than Powder Coatings. Powder Coatings are stronger than PVDF Coatings.

What is a Kynar finish on metal?

Kynar coating is a chemical resistant used as metal finishing. To get technical, Kynar consists of polyvinylidene fluoride or polyvinylidene difluoride, usually referred to as PVDF in the construction, industrial, and architectural industries.

What is PVDF sensor?

Polyvinylidene fluoride sensors (PVDF) are the sensors of choice for a wide range of measurement. applications because they have unique characteristics: – Rapid response (Nanosecond) – Large stress range (kPa to GPa) – Large signal to noise ratio.

What temperature can PVDF withstand?

PVDF is a material that can retain the majority of its strength at temperatures up to 280°F. For comparison, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) has a maximum service temperature of just 140°F.

What is PVDF coating on aluminum?

PVDF coating of uniform and excellent quality has a metallic luster, bright colour and strong three-dimensional sense. PVDF coating has excellent anti-fading, anti-frosting and anti-air pollution (acid rain, etc.) corrosion due to its stable chemical properties and good adhesion effect.

Is Kynar worth the cost?

Kynar® is an Investment grade metal roofing options, due to higher price point. Though Kynar® may seem expensive at first, the amount of money that it will end up saving you in paint jobs, cleanings, and replacement is well worth it. Kynar® is a softer paint, which has the potential to scratch easier.

What does Kynar look like?

Coating Mixtures with 70% Kynar® – The Optimal Amount Barrier properties. Glossiness. Resistance to humidity.
