175°C High Performance Flexible Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF or Kynar®) Tubing

High Temperature, Chemical-Resistant, Semi-Rigid Tubing

Our PVDF Heat Shrink tubing is especially suitable for applications requiring high-temperature performance, outstanding abrasion resistance and cut-through resistance, or superior chemical and solvent properties.

Kynar Characteristics

  • Tough, semi rigid, very thin-wall insulation
  • High flame-resistance
  • Protection from most industrial solvents, fuels and chemicals

Kynar Applications

  • Electrical insulation and strain relief
  • Applications requiring dense packaging of components or visual inspection of covered components

Polyvinylidene Fluoride Specifications
