Copolymerized with vinyl chloride or acrylonitrile to form various kinds of Saran. Other copolymers are also made. Adhesives; component of synthetic fibers.
Vinylidene chloride is a basic material for poly(vinylidene chloride) or its copolymers with vinyl chloride, acrylonitrile, methacrylonitrile, and methacrylate. With these materials, barrier layers for food packaging are formed as well as laminated and polymer sandwich type films. ... The production of HFC-142b, a feedstock for fluoropolymer production, is another major use of VDC.
... Unisolated intermediate in the production of 1,1,1-trichloroethane.
VDC is produced solely for use as a chemical intermediate primarily in the production of polyvinylidene polymers, copolymer and terpolymers. Another key application is in the production of chloroacetyl chloride. It is also used in the production of a hydrofluorocarbon.
