Hylar® PVDF possesses the characteristic stability of fluoropolymers when
exposed to harsh thermal, chemical, and ultraviolet environments. It is readily
melt-processable by standard methods of molding and extrusion. In addition,
especially at elevated temperatures, Hylar® PVDF can be dissolved in some polar
solvents such as esters and ketones. This selective solubility is an advantage
in the preparation of corrosion-resistant coatings for chemical process
equipment and long-life decorative finishes on building panels.
