A Guide to Teflon Coating Although we usually associate the word Teflon with a non stick surface, Teflon coatings actually go beyond providing a non-stick surface. In the industrial and engineering worlds, Teflon coatings are very important to machines and products because it either makes or breaks them. Teflon coatings come in different types and here some of the most common ones. The most popular type of Teflon coating is the Teflon PTFE, which is short for poly tetrafluoroethylene. Teflon PTFE is a non-stick coating that is made up of a primer and then a top coat. From all the different types of fluoroplymers, only PTFE can handle the highest temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. PTFE has another advantage in the fact that its coefficient of friction is very low. It is also resistant to abrasions and many types of chemicals. Teflon PTFE comes only in liquid form and it water-based, which is a downside to this type of Teflon coating.
Why Businesses Aren’t As Bad As You Think
Teflon FEP also known as fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer, is the kind of film that is non-porous. During baking, this type of coating melts and flows. This Teflon coating is also resistant to commonly used chemicals and it is also the type that is very non-stick. You can get this type of Teflon in powder form and as a water based liquid.
Companies Tips for The Average Joe
Teflon PFA is quite similar to FEP is some ways. But PFA tolerates a higher temperature during continuous use and can reach up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. PFA or perfluoroalkocy is also tougher that FEP or PTFE, so it can handle a lot more than the first two types of Teflon coating. PFA can also be used in powder or as water based liquid form. Tefzel ETFE is the toughest fluoropolymer on the market which is sold by Teflon under the tefzel name. Since this type of coating is not completely fluorinated it is important is some applications. This type comes only in power form. Teflon One Coat is ideal if you are looking for a Teflon coating that is solvent based rather than water based. This type of coating has been blended and is much thought and extremely resistant to abrasions. One coat can work well with smooth metal surfaces and this is one of its advantages because other coatings only stick on rough surfaces. Teflon Dry Lubricant is the best choice when it comes to situations that involve a lot of pressure and high velocities. Although solvent based like one coat, it is designed differently to work well when there is high amounts of pressure or velocity. Aluminum, steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, brass, glass, rubber, fiberglass, and even plastic can be applied with Teflon coatings.
