Project at a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Polyvinylidene fluoride, or PVDF is a highly non-reactive and pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer.
  • PVDF is a specialty plastic material in the fluoropolymer family; it is used generally in applications requiring the highest purity,
    strength, and resistance to solvents, acids, bases and heat and low smoke generation during a fire event.
  • PVDF membranes are used for western blots for immobilization of proteins, due to its non-specific affinity for amino acids.
  • PVDF may be synthesized from the gaseous VDF monomer via a free radical (or controlled radical) polymerization process. This may
    be followed by processes such as melt casting, or processing from a solution (e.g. solution casting, spin coating, and film casting).
  • Copolymers of PVDF are also used in piezoelectric and electrostrictive applications.
  • One of the most commonly-used copolymers is P(VDF-trifluoroethylene), usually available in ratios of about 50:50 wt% and 65:35 wt%.
  • PVDF is commonly used as insulation on some kinds of electrical wires, because of its combination of flexibility, low weight, low thermal conductivity, high chemical corrosion resistance, and heat resistance.
  • The piezoelectric properties of PVDF are used to advantage to manufacture tactile sensor arrays, inexpensive strain gauges and
    lightweight audio transducers.
  • In the biomedical sciences PVDF is used in immunoblotting as an artificial membrane, usually with 0.22 or 0.45 micrometres pore
    sizes, on which proteins are transferred using electricity.
  • PVDF is resistant to solvents and, therefore, these membranes can be easily stripped and reused to look at other proteins, making it very convenient.
  • PVDF is used for specialty monofilament fishing lines, sold as fluorocarbon replacements for nylon monofilament.
  • Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF), the homopolymer of 1,1,- difluoroethene is a tough engineering thermoplastic that offers a unique balance of properties like excellent chemical resistance, good mechanical properties, excellent resistance to abrasion and low friction
    co-efficient, high temperature use and excellent thermal stability, outstanding ageing resistance, UV and gama radiation stability and
    very high dielectric and piezoelectric constant.
  • PVDF is widely used in equipments for chemical, petrochemical, hydrometallurgical, pharmaceutical, food and nuclear industries as well as in paper and pulp industries, as components in electrical and electronic industries, as thin films for building and automobile industries, as coatings and also as solar energy panels.
  • In processing of PVDF around 13 processors namely five in the moulding sector, eight in the wire and cable sector have come up
    in the country who are importing the basic resin and processing with indigenous equipment.
  • The market has picked up for PVDF as entrepreneurs as well as the users are becoming aware of this product because of its easy
    processability and its wide range of applications.
  • PVDF has entered India as finished components like pipes, pipe fittings, valves etc. for the Chloralkali industries where it is best suited for nascent Chlorine.
  • The Kynar 500® PVDF resin is made using a new fluorosurfactantfree (FSF) process.
  • Arkema Inc. has developed a multilayer blown film process using its Kynar PVDF films to deliver cost-effective films as per market needs.
  • Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a ferroelectric polymer with unique properties suitable for use in a wide range of medical and biological imaging applications.
  • Polyvinylidene Fluoride exhibits a variety of characteristic mechanical and electrical properties, such as piezoelectricity and pyroelectricity PVDF has a very simple chemical formula, -CH2-CF2-, intermediate between polyethylene (PE) -CH2-CH2- and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) -CF2-CH2-.
  • Polyvinylidene fluoride exhibits higher piezoelectricity than other polymer materials such as nylon and polyvinyl chloride.
  • PVDF is a superior material for sensors because its stress constant, the ability to convert stress into electrical energy, is more than 20 times higher than that of lead zirconate titanate.
  • In medical and biological imaging above 15MHz, PVDF and its copolymers have proven extremely useful.
