Coolshield PVDF membranes are formulated with polyvinylidene fluoride, a highly non-reactive and pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer, generally used in applications requiring the highest purity, strength and resistance to solvents, acids and high temperatures. Cooley’s unique PVDF formulation is a fluorinated, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymer obtained by radical polymerization of vinylidene flouride, making Coolshield among the most chemically inert of all polymers.
Coolshield PVDF was designed for the chemical, safety, medical and food industries, for use in applications such as tubing, venting, ducting and containment of acids, solvents and fuels. Coolshield PVDF is available in a variety of sizes and colors, with or without an encapsulated edge. Coolshield PVDF can also be extruded onto various fabric and yarn types, in order to customize a unique membrane to meet the requirements of specific applications.
