Chemical Resistance Guide for Handling Aggressive Fluids


The suitability of three formulations of Kynar® polyvinylidene fluoride resins, Kynar Flex® 2800, 2850 and homopolymer to more than 600 aggressive chemicals at various concentrations, when used from ambient temperatures to indicated maximums, is provided in this 12-page Chemical Resistance Chart now available from Arkema Inc.

Chemical Resistance Guide for Handling Aggressive Fluids

Kynar® PVDF resins are widely used for piping materials, tanks, pumps, nozzles, tower packing and valves. Common handling applications include hot acids, halogens, high purity fluids, hydrocarbons and oxidants, as well as for those applications involving high purity water and chemicals or foods where metallic contamination cannot be tolerated. It can also be used continuously at temperatures as high as 140°C (285°F) in environments where chemical attack is minimal.

Arkema was launched on October 1, 2004, as a result of the reorganization of Total’s chemicals business. Arkema has tremendous potential and counts on the experience and expertise of its 19,300 employees worldwide to create a company of innovation, growth and performance.

With EUR 5 billion ($6 billion) in sales worldwide, 90 industrial sites in more than 40 countries, and six research and development centers, Arkema consists of three balanced business segments: vinyl products, industrial chemicals, and performance products. With its internationally recognized brands, Arkema holds leadership positions in its principal markets.
