Kynar® PVDF and Kynar Flex® PVDF are chemically resistant polymer materials that are excellent at handling wastewater, acids, chlorides, and have the added benefit of high resistance to the effects of radiation. Components made from Kynar® PVDF include piping, pumps, valves, fittings, tubing, filtration equipment, coatings and holding tanks. For over 50 years Kynar® PVDF has been used to construct chemical containment components for uranium and plutonium based technologies at major processing facilities throughout the United States.
Arkema Inc. offers a range of technical polymers including Kynar® fluoropolymers, Pebax® elastomers, and Rilsan® polyamides, that are suitable for food contact applications. Applications requiring high temperature and chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, ductility, flexibility, high mechanical strength, and sunlight resistance can all be met with one or more of these polymers. Arkema’s technical polymers are thermoplastic and can be injection molded, compression molded, extruded, and applied as a powder coating. Articles such as piping, tubing, fittings, pumps, tanks and vessels, belting, nozzles, and fasteners can be made from this polymer group to meet special needs in the processing of meat, fish & poultry, dairy products, acidic juices, beverages (hot and cold), sauces, and alcoholic spirits.
Arkema, with its subsidiaries, will present technologies of coatings is showcasing one of the coating industry’s broadest technology and business offerings at ABRAFATI 2017. The company will display products spanning every aspect of coating formulation, including technologies previously unavailable in the region. Arkema Coating Resins products on display at ABRAFATI include: binders for architectural coatings, binders for durable, flexible waterproofing formulas, high-performance elastomeric latexes for Cool Roof Coatings, traffic paint binders offering excellent fast-dry performance and durability, and binders for cements, mortars and grouts. To learn more, visit the Arkema stand at ABRAFATI, located at Stand #80.
For over 50 years, Arkema’s Technical Polymers have been the materials of choice for high performance wire and cable applications. Rilsan® polyamide resins and Kynar® / Kynar Flex®® fluoropolymer resins offer a wide range of extreme properties to suit the most demanding needs of the wire & cable industry.
Rilsan® resins are long chain polyamides that offer exceptional performance compared to short chain polyamides including chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and low density. Kynar® resins retain excellent physical properties in adverse chemical and thermal environments allowing them to be used when more flexibility and toughness are required. The chemical resistance of Kynar® and Kynar Flex® PVDF resins allows for use in corrosive chemicals, acids, and extreme [high and low] temperature environments. Kynar® resins also provide exceptional abrasion resistance, excellent UV resistance, inherent flame resistance, and low smoke generation.
Kynar® PVDF and Kynar Flex® PVDF are strong and chemically resistant fluoropolymers available in the form of pipe, tubing, fittings, valves, pumps, tower packing and semi-finished products such as rods, sheets, and block. In addition to the traditional line of products, Arkema is now introducing Kynar Flex® 3030 a high melt point flexible grade with low temperature ductility. The Kynar® product line is commonly used in heavy chemical handling industries like chlor-alkali, pulp & paper, nuclear, waste water treatment, mining, metal preparation, power plants, petrochemical, bioPharma and semiconductor industries where commodity plastics and metals may not stand the test in chemical and temperature resistance.
