PVDF Filament

TECAFIL PVDF natural is an unfilled PVDF filament that closes the gap between engineering and high temperature plastics. The material polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is characterised by high density and good strength, as well as high chemical resistance. Another key feature of our PVDF filament is its low moisture absorption and good resistance to UV radiation.
Due to these properties, PVDF filaments are suitable for outdoor applications, but also for indoor components, e.g. within the sanitary sector.
Due to its low coefficient of sliding friction, PVDF can also be used in mechanical engineering as sealing, sliding strip, sliding element or even as a curve guide.
In addition, industrial applications can also benefit from its very good welding properties.
Besides mechanical applications, PVDF is also widely used in electrical engineering, because it exhibits good electrical insulation properties.
Its compatibility for chemical environments and elevated temperatures make it a preferred material in the biopharma sector and in the chemical processing industry.
There are many advantages of PVDF 3D printing that allow scope for your applications. Parts printed from PVDF filament are permanently temperature resistant up to 150 °C. Ensinger’s PVDF filament offers high temperature plastic properties and allows to be printed with the same settings as an engineering filament. Thanks to the low water absorption, PVDF 3D printing can be performed on desktop printers without an integrated drying chamber.
