Polyvinylidene fluoride

Description

Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer, which is chemically very resistant, with excellent mechanical properties. It is used generally in applications requiring the highest purity, strength, and resistance to solvents, acids, bases and heat (Wikipedia). PVDF is resistant against oxygen diffusion which makes it an ideal material for high-resolution respirometry (coating of stirrer bars; stoppers for closing the O2k-Chamber).

Abbreviation: PVDF


MitoPedia methods: Respirometry
