Press release date: January 11, 2012

FORT WORTH, TX – Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, extrudes PVDF tubing in a Flex® and SuperFlex® design for critical applications where abrasion and/or permeation is typically a problem. PVDF is an engineered fluoropolymer designed with enhanced durometer properties (Shore D hardness of D75-D85). PVDF also exhibits low extractable levels, while providing high mechanical strength and good resistance to many chemicals and solvents. 

Because of the low permeability and the increased durometer, PVDF is often used in applications requiring the highest purity, strength and resistance to solvents. It is also very flexible and has a 94-VO rating, hence it does not promote flame spread and resists combustion.

The PVDF SuperFlex design offer 10x the flexibility of the standard Flex tubing. Standard product sizes range from 1/8” up to 1” O.D. and are available from the Parflex Division’s Texloc product line. 

With annual sales exceeding $13 billion in fiscal year 2012, Parker Hannifin is the world’s leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of mobile, industrial and aerospace markets. The company employs approximately 60,000 people in 48 countries around the world. Parker has increased its annual dividends paid to shareholders for 56 consecutive fiscal years, among the top five longest-running dividend-increase records in the S&P 500 index.
