3D Printed Lab Parts in PVDF for Sale


Hi All,

I'm offering custom 3D printed parts of PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) for sale. PVDF is a fluoropolymer offering excellent chemical resistance up to 150C. Can be used with 1-12 pH and resistant to most chemicals, except acetone and other ketones. If you need anything custom made for your lab let me know. You can either send me your CAD file or I can help design. The specific PVDF is Kynar 740 and I can provide more data on request.

Thanks

Hi David, no this is the more common FDM process. Unlike PTFE, PVDF is melt processable so it can be used in conventional 3D printers. I'll post some pictures of a couple demo pieces.

Here's a video of me printing a cylinder. After it's done I'll post another video of its toughness.

Funnily - i was just looking at this, great idea - I don't have an actual project at the moment - But I'm sure I can dream something up. :-)

Whats the max build size?

Max build size is 8.7" x 5.7"x5.7". I will preface that it's still experimental, it's a challenging plastic to print due to it's anti-friction properties and high processing temperature. I can also print in ABS or PLA if anyone's just looking for some brackets, non-contacting parts, etc. Those plastics are easy to print and I can turn those around quicker at cheaper pricing.
