150°C High Performance Flexible Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) Tubing

High-Performance, Flame Resistant, Flexible Tubing

Our Polyvinylidene Fluoride tubing (PVDF) can be used for jacketing and bundling of wires to form light-duty harnesses, especially where abrasion resistance and flexibility are needed.  This tubing is thinner than most general purpose polyolefins.

High Performance Tubing Characteristics

  • Excellent Abrasion and Cut through Resistance
  • High Flame Resistance
  • Thinner Wall than most general purpose polyolefins

Flexible Heat Shrink Tubing Applications

  • Jacketing and bundling of wires to form light-duty harnesses
  • Excellent strain relief of electrical connections and wire terminations
  • Wire Identification
  • Packaging of Components

PVDF Tubing Specifications

  • UL, VW-1, File No. E323941
