PVF is well established as a material with a high level of resistance to corrosion, with major applications including photovoltaic solar panels and flame-retardant coatings for aircraft. World-renowned fluoropolymers authority, Dr Sina Ebnesajjad has written the first published title on PVF to provide guidance and reference data for engineers and scientists involved in using PVF in their products, evaluating the potential of PVF, and engaged in R&D work including polymer design and production.

Key Features

Complete guide to the applications of polyvinyl fluoride in photovoltaics, aerospace, signage, etc.

• Technology guide for processing and fabrication of PVF films.

• Reference for properties and characteristics of PVF films

• The only book available that focuses on PVF - properties, processing and applications


The commercial PVF film Tedlar® was first trademarked by DuPont 50 years ago. Since that time it has established itself as a polymer with excellent resistance to sunlight degradation (UV resistance), thermal stability, chemical attack, water absorption, and solvents. These properties, together with a high solar energy transmittance rate, have led to it becoming established worldwide as the number one choice for the backsheets of photovoltaic solar panels, and a fire-retardent coating used in aircraft.

This book is the first and only handbook that describes polyvinyl fluoride preparation, technology, processing, fabrication and applications - making it essential reading for engineers and scientists working in industry sectors where PVF is utilized.
