Modificated PVDF

This with conductive carbon black modificated PVDF is an electrical conductive PVDF. It combines high thermal loading resistance, high density and high chemical resistance, with very low moisture absorption. It also exhibits resistance to UV radiation. Ensinger sells this material under the tradename TEC AFLON PVDF ELS black.
