Flexible, transparent fluoroplastic composed of tetrafluoroethylene, hexafluoropropylene, and vinylidene fluoride in the form of pellets. Provides a balance of low temperature processing, low flammability, thermal stability, and melt processability. Can be used to prepare molded parts and extruded films, tubes, profiles and wire coatings. Makes an excellent fuel barrier in hose/tube applications.
THV 500G has excellent permeation resistance and the ability to be bonded to elastomers and hydrocarbon based plastics
It can be used in automotive fuel hoses as a barrier layer
THV 500 can also be extruded or compression molded into optically clear sheet with oustanding flame resistance
THV 500 can also be used in various film and tubing applications
THV 500 is weldable to itself
Exceptional optical clarity and light transmission
Outstanding flexibility relative to other fluoroplastics
Dyneon™ THV (a polymer of tetrafluoroethylene, hexafluoropropylene and vinylidene fluoride) provides a combination of performance advantages, such as low processing temperature, ability to bond to elastomers and hydrocarbon-based plastics, flexibility and optical clarity. These combined advantages create new opportunities to make multilayer hoses, tubes, sheets and films that can be used in a variety of markets and applications such as automotive, chemical processing, semiconductor, solar energy, optical fiber and architectural and protective coatings.
