One of the main features of PVDF that makes it
attractive to tank storage applications is that is has a
wide range of continuous use temperatures. Depending on
the chemical application PVDF continuous use temperature
can approach 300 F.
PVDF is unaffected by UV rays, has excellent fire
resistance, is approved for food contact and is easily
welded which allows for custom fabrication.
PVDF can be joined by thermoplastic welding. This means
that welded couplings and welded flanges can be fitted
to tanks. In storage applications of hazardous
chemicals the use of welded fittings means that there
are no gaskets to fail over time.
