Description

Kynar® resins are fluorinated thermoplastic homopolymers.

Kynar® MG15 resin is a crystalline high viscosity polymer of polyvinylidene difluoride. It is an engineering polymer with an outstanding balance of physical strength and high chemical resistance which make it ideal for micro and ultra-filtration membranes for durable water purification and other applications.

Kynar® MG15 resin is soluble in selected solvents and can be used in solution processing applications. It is especially recommended for hollow fiber and flat sheet membranes.

Kynar® MG15 resin has NSF, FDA, and USP Class VI certifications for use in potable water, food processing, and bio-pharma applications.
