Kynar® PVDF solutions

Kynar® PVDF separator coatings 

In this webinar series, the first episode is about Kynar® PVDF coated separators for lithium-ion batteries. Kynar® PVDF is a tough engineering thermoplastic solution that offers a balance of high performance properties. The formulation is specified to bring tremendous resistance, high stability and durability.


Key takeaways:

  • Kynar® PVDF is one of the largest PVDFs used in the world for separator coating
  • Kynar® PVDF is one of the broadest portfolios in the market : powder/latex and broad range of copolymers
  • Kynar® PVDF serves the region from the region

Kynar® PVDF cathode binders

Kynar® PVDF homopolymers and Kynar Flex® copolymers are used in the battery industry as binders for cathodes and anodes in lithum-ion batteries, and as battery separators in lithium-ion polymer batteries. Arkema has more than 50 years of experience in PVDF coatings and films and can help design thinner, smaller lithium-ion batteries.


Key takeaways: 

  • Arkema provides a wide range of PVDF homopolymers and copolymers
  • Kynar® HSV900 remains the market reference for LFP cathodes
  • Kynar® HSV1800 designed to bring more benefit especially to LFP and LCO systems

  • Kynar® HSV1810 is developed for high Ni active material systems

  • Kynar® PVDF made by emulsion polymerization provides benefit in electrode production
