Is Kynar a PTFE?

Is Kynar a PTFE?

While PTFE shares – and possibly exceeds – the range of Kynar when it comes to multiple applications, the fact that PTFE cannot be melt processed means there are limitations in part shape and design. It is here that Kynar comes out ahead.

What is fluoropolymer tubing?

AMETEK Fluor-X™ fluoropolymer tubing is designed for both ultrahigh purity and highly corrosive applications in a wide range of temperatures. Fluoropolymer tubing and Fluoropolymer pipe can be cut and used in special applications as well as OEM system designs.

What is PTFE tubing used for?

PTFE tubing is most widely used as laboratory tubing and for applications where chemical resistance and purity are essential. PTFE has a very low coefficient of friction and is one of the most “slippery” substances known. We offer a broad range of sizes which can be used with standard compression fittings.

What is PTFE tubing?

PTFE Teflon® Tubing (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene, often described as Teflon® tubing) is a transparent, chemically inert and non-toxic material that features unmatched chemical resistance and a surface that really facilitates the flow.

What is Kynar tubing?

PVDF (Kynar-Flex®) is an abrasion resistant fluoropolymer acceptable for use in applications requiring chemical resistance and low permeability. PVDF tubing is also weather, UV and radiation resistant, making it perfect for a wide range of applications. PVDF tubing has a temperature range of -20°F to 212°F.

What does PVDF stand for?

polyvinylidene fluoride
PVDF is the abbreviation for polyvinylidene fluoride, which can also be referred to as PVF2. This polymer is part of a class of materials known as fluorocarbons or fluoropolymers, which are characterized by high thermal stability and excellent chemical resistance.

Is PTFE a fluoropolymer?

PTFE (which is the only fluoropolymer which does not melt) is processed through press and sinter techniques while the other common fluoropolymers (FEP, PVDF, PCTFE, PFA and a few others) are melt-processible.

What is FEP tubing?

Fluorinated ethylene-propylene tubing or FEP tubing is a nice alternative to PTFE teflon tubing and PFA tubing that exhibits many similar properties such as biocompatibility and a remarkable inertia to most chemicals. This flexible material with very good optical clarity, is mostly used for low-pressure microfluidics.

Is PTFE tubing soft?

PTFE tubing is the most flexible of all fluoropolymer tubing offered. The smooth surface finish and lowest coefficient of friction & lubricity make the tubing, pipe or rod ideal for bushing or bearing applications. PTFE tubing temperature range is -410°F to 500°F.

Is PTFE rigid or flexible?

The material is flexible, chemical resistant, nonflammable, and heat resistant. It also features a high dielectric strength and is inert to most chemicals and solvents. It is suitable for use in industrial, chemical processing, general laboratory, automotive, insulation, and food service applications.

Is PTFE and Teflon the same thing?

What’s the Difference Between Teflon™ and PTFE The simple answer is that they are the same thing: Teflon™ is a brand name for PTFE and is a trademark brand name used by the Du Pont company and its subsidiary companies (Kinetic which first registered the trademark & Chemours which currently owns it).

Who makes Kynar?

Arkema is the manufacturer of Kynar & Kynar 500 resin. Solvay is the manufacturer of Hylar 5000 resin.

What kind of tubing is used for Kynar?

It is PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride), which is comparable to Kynar, and has the chemical resistance to stand up to solvents and other harsh substances. Also known as Schedule 80 pipe, it has thick walls for heavy duty chemical processing applications.

What are the different sizes of PTFE tubing?

PTFE Tubing in AWG Sizes. PTFE Tubing provides the ultimate in lubricity, high temperature use, chemical resistance, biocompatibility, and precision extruded tolerances. AWG Sized PTFE Tubing is sold in Standard 250 ft, 500 ft & 1000 ft Spools. Flexible PTFE Tubing is available in both AWG Sizes or Fractional Sizes.

Which is better for flame retardance Kynar or PVDF?

Pipe meets UL 94 V-0 for flame retardance, so it delays the spread of flames to valuable equipment. It is PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride), which is comparable to Kynar, and has the chemical resistance to stand up to solvents and other harsh substances.

Which is the best brand of PVDF tubing?

r\moothbore rperFlex® r\olors PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride) is a tough engineering Fluoropolymer that offers a combination of properties beneficial for use in many critical applications requiring chemical resistance with low permeability.
