FINALLY, A KYNAR® GRADE FOR SEALS, O-RINGS, AND DIAPHRAGMS
Kynar UltraFlex™ is an elastomeric material based on Arkema's proven PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) resin. This unique fluoropolymer exhibits exceptional resistance to chemicals, ozone, ultraviolet light, radiation and moisture. Molding is very similar to many fluoroelastomers without the use of curing agents and molding time is significantly reduced. Post-curing of molded parts improves mechanical properties and chemical resistance.
A unique new technology creates open-celled construction foams that exhibit most of the known properties of Arkema's KYNAR® polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) fluoropolymer without the use of blowing agents or melt processing. This method allows the creation of foams with substrates that would otherwise be sensitive to heat or chemicals used in other foaming methods. This composite technology creates properties that are not inherent in open-cell construction polymers.
