Kynar® PVDF Now Commercially Available From MiniFIBERS
Johnson City, Tenn.-based MiniFIBERS Inc. has expanded its product offering with the introduction of Kynar® polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) multifilament and precision cut staple fibers in a variety of cut lengths and deniers per filament. MiniFibers reports Kynar is traditionally used in environments requiring excellent chemical resistance, weatherability and durability; and is resistant to water, acids, oxidants, halogens, hydrocarbons, ozone, and aromatic and aliphatic solvents. The fiber also offers abrasion, ultraviolet, stain and odor resistance; and can withstand gamma ray sterilization techniques.
“Our Kynar partially oriented yarn (POY) is produced with our proprietary fiber spinning technology,” said Jeffrey Hyde, vice president of sales and marketing, MiniFibers. “We are seeing tremendous interest from a broad range of applications where the outstanding physical properties of Kynar are valuable.”
“The properties of Kynar PVDF allow access to an exceptionally broad range of new markets and opportunities for our company,” said Kerry Keith, president, MiniFibers. “The opportunities for this high-performance polymer range from textiles to filtration to battery separators.”
