Foaming Process

Strength and purity of T-Tubes® clean environment insulation come from the inherent robust nature of Kynar®PVDF resin and the unique process used to turn it into foam.

A unique foaming process converts Kynar®PVDF resin to foam by simply introducing nitrogen into it. There are no chemical blowing agents, toxic or non-toxic, that may reduce the efficiency or purity of the foam. Since nitrogen is an inert gas, the resulting foam is as pure and robust as the resin that is used.

Please visit our "Chemical Resistance" page to learn about Kynar® PVDF's durability.
