The variety of Teflon© industrial coatings is extensive, and for any particular use there may be several Teflon© cotaings that will perform well. Below are some of the properties or our coatings:
Non-StickVery few substances will permanently adhere to a Teflon© coated finish. Although tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily.
Low Coefficient of FrictionThe coefficeint of friction of Teflon© is generally in the range of 0.05 ti 0.20, depending on the load, sliding speed and particular Teflon© coating used.
NonwettingSince surfaces coated with Teflon© are both oleophobic and hydrophobic, the are not readily wett. Clean-up is easier and more thorough - in many cases, surfaces are self-cleaning.
Heat ResistanceTeflon© industrial coatings can operate continuously at temperatures of up to 260°C/500°F and can be used for intermittent service up to 316°C/600°F with adequate ventilation.
Unique Electrical Properties
Over a wide range of frequencies, Teflon© has high dielectric strength, low diss1pation factor and very high surface resistivity. By special techniques, it can even be made electroconductive enough to be used as an anti-static coating.
Many Teflon© industrial coatings withstand severe temperature extremes without loss of physical properties. Teflon© industrial coatings may be used at temperatures as low as -270°C/-454°F;.
Teflon© is normally unaffected by chemical environments. The only chemicals to affect all Teflon© industrial coatings are molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents.
Thanks to a variety of coating types, the unique properties of Teflon© industrial coatings can become an integral surface component on any kind of part - from clutches that engage easier and valves that resist wear to coil springs that become silent. With proper equipment, Teflon© industrial coatings can even be appllied to specific areas of complex geometric parts, such as the internal threads of a nut.
