Hylar®

The Hylar® coatings are marketed by Solvay and are formed by a balance of physical properties that qualify it for a high-performance service in a wide range of applications.

The Hylar® PVDF coatings have the inherent stability of fluoropolymers when exposed to thermal, chemical and ultraviolet hard environments. Among its features, we can find the following ones:

-    Stability at temperatures up to 316°C
-    Excellent chemical resistance
-    Excellent weatherproofing
-    Suitable for coating metal and fabric laminates or fibre reinforced.

Regarding its applications, such coatings are suitable for non-architectural coatings such as chemical processing equipment, automotive undersides, fasteners and applications of brake hoses or for industries where exposure to highly corrosive chemicals and high temperatures is standard.
