Kynar® PVDF Tubing

Click image to enlarge

As a chemical-resistant, easily fabricated tubing material, Kynar® PVDF compound is an economical alternative to Teflon®, (PTFE, PFA, and FEP). It is an ideal tubing choice for applications that do not require the heat-resistance of Teflon®. Also known as Polyvinylidene fluoride, Kynar® possesses high electrochemical stability. This high purity material is the perfect tubing material for a variety of applications requiring an odorless and tasteless tube. 

We use a very flexible Kynar® grade. We have a wide selection of tubing diameters to choose from. Contact our tubing experts to determine if Kynar® is suited for your application needs.

Kynar® Plastic Tubing Application Uses

As an FDA compliant material, Kynar® tubing is well-suited for food and beverage applications as well as pumps, valves, and applications that require high purity or ozone resistance. With the added advantage of being a lightweight material, Kynar® tubing also works well in applications requiring abrasion-resistance or as a metal alloy replacement. Additional applications include semiconductor and pharmaceutical uses.
We also carry metric Kynar® tubing for additional Kynar® tubing options.
