Due to PVDF's high mechanical strength, stiffness, high abrasion resistance and low coefficient of friction, it is highly suitable for the manufacture of machine parts.
PVDF falls into fire class B1 (according to DIN 4102), which means the material is flame-resistant and self-extinguishing. In addition, PVDF is fully approved and certified for food contact according to the European 10/2011 Food Grade legislation. This is essential in the canning and food industry, meat and fish processing companies and other applications where non-toxic behaviour, the environment and hygiene are important. Amari Plastics also has certification for the benefit of the Federal Health Office and the Food and Drugs Administration.

How to identify PVDF
Colour is not always an indicator, but PVDF can often be identified by its opal, milky colour. As you can see PVDF is not easily flammable.
The specific gravity is higher than 1, which means that PVDF does not float.
Info per segment
PVDF Engineering Plastics
This industry-wide, high-performance plastic is highly-used to withstand heavy loads, used under tension and for bending and compression. It also has a very high resistance to chemicals, is UV resistant and flame retardant.
PVDF is suitable for direct contact with food due to its inherent material purity.

What are the main technical properties of PVDF?
PVDF is a fluoroplastic and, due to its composition, has a good resistance to very pure chemicals. The high purity of the material also makes PVDF suitable for contact with ultrapure water. PVDF is suitable for infrared welding. As a result, the groove in the tube is many times smaller compared to other welding methods.
