(PVDF) Altafluor 500
ALTAFLUOR® 500 PVDF Tubing & Pipe
PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride) is an abrasion resistant fluoropolymer suitable for use in applications requiring chemical resistance with low permeability.
ALTAFLUOR® 500 PVDF is the most abrasion and temperature resistant of the PVDF products offered.
ALTAFLUOR® 500 PVDF tubing and pipe provide excellent abrasion resistance and mechanical strength in use with many chemicals and solvents.
With its extremely low extractable levels, ALTAFLUOR® 500 PVDF pipe is excellent for use in ultra pure water systems.
ALTAFLUOR® 500 PVDF tubing is suitable for use with conventional fittings but is not recommended for use with flare fittings. ALTAFLUOR® 500 PVDF pipe can be joined using conventional threaded fittings or welded.

What is polyvinylidene fluoride?
Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a kind of abrasion resistant fluoropolymer that can be used in a range of applications. It is particularly well suited to applications that require chemical resistance with a low permeability. We offer Altafluor 500 PVDF, which is the most abrasion and temperature resistant of the PVDF products currently available.
What is PVDF coating?
PVDF coating (polyvinylidene fluoride) is a kind of thermoplastic fluoropolymer. The coating is resistant to most chemicals, acids and solvents, making it a useful material in a number of applications. It is often used in chemical processing equipment because of its unique properties, and can be used as a coating on steel, aluminum and various other types of metals. Besides its chemical resistance, PVDF coating is also UV resistant and offers excellent abrasion resistance and low permeability. The material is popular for its durability and resistance to very harsh environments, as well as it’s resistance to combustion and flame spread.
What are the features of Altafluor 500 PVDF?
Our Altafluor 500 PVDF is made from 100% virgin grade resin, and has an excellent abrasion resistance. The tubing and pipe has a low permeability and UV resistance, as well as mechanical strength in use with a wide range of chemicals and solvents.
What can Altafluor 500 PVDF be used for?
Altafluor 500 PVDF can be used in a number of applications. These include chemical processes, in semiconductors, water process systems, aquariums, and ozone. Because of its extremely low extractable levels, our Altafluor 500 PVDF pipes are excellent for use in ultra pure water systems. The tubing can be used with conventional fittings, but please note that it is not recommended for use with flare fittings. The Altafluor 500 PVDF pipes can be joined using conventional threaded fittings, or they can be welded, depending on the particular application.
What sizes is Altafluor 550 PVDF tubing available in?
The Altafluor 550 PVDF tubing is available in standard as well as metric sizes. This particular kind of tubing is also compatible with most standard fittings. It is important to note, however, that it is not suitable for use with flare-type fittings. Should you require Altafluor 550 PVDF in the form of pipe, rather than tubing, please do get in touch. We are able to arrange the pipe upon request, so please do let us know how we can help you.
Is Altafluor 550 PVDF tubing really resistant to a range of chemicals?
Yes, absolutely. The tubing is chemically resistant to many industrial chemicals and solvents including acids, chlorinated chemicals, brominated chemicals, alcohols and hydrocarbons. Additionally, Altafluor 550 DVDF tubing and pipe products are also ideal for applications that require exposure to less aggressive chemicals. The tubing is also resistant to nuclear radiation. For these reasons, it is suitable for a wide range of applications, including nuclear waste, ozone, metal preparation, food and beverage, petrochemical processing, high purity semiconductor, chemical processes, water purification, and ultra-pure water processing systems. It’s important to note that the tubing has also been approved for use in food contact applications in compliance with FDA regulations.
