Many people are familiar with Teflon coatings, however that familiarity rarely extends past pots and pans. Teflon coating services vary in strength and type, making this stronghold the perfect choice for industrial products for the food industry, aerospace, and governmental purposes.
When used for industrial purposes, not all Teflon coating services are created equal. It’s imperative to make the right choice the first time to avoid any potential issues.
So, where do you start?
The team at Performance Engineered Components are guiding you through what to look for when browsing services, Teflon types, and how to choose the best service provider.
The Nitty-Gritty of Teflon
Teflon coating is an imperative part of the production process for metal pieces. The material is versatile, reliable and oh-so-tough.
Benefits of Teflon coating includes:
- Non-reactive to chemicals
- Smooth, with little friction
- Water resistant
- Easy to clean
There are several types of Teflon coating spray. Each comes with its own strengths and forms.
PTFE or polytetrafluoroethylene is the most popular Teflon spray due to its versatility. Containing both a primer and top coat, PTFE creates a non-stick surface that withstands high temperatures and chemicals.
PFA stands for another tongue twister; perfluoroalkoxy.
Durable and versatile, PFA can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and comes in liquid and powder form.
Looking for an incredibly water-resistant option? FEP is the choice for you.
Fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer is chemical resistant and also comes in a water-based liquid and powder.
4. Tefzel ETFE
ETFE is, without a doubt, the strongest Teflon coating spray on the market today. If you need a heavy duty coating, this is the Teflon spray you’ve been looking for.
Please note that ETFE is only available as a powder.
5. One Coat Spray
Everyone loves a “one and done” service. One Coat spray takes ease-of-use to a new level.
Teflon One Coat easily sticks to rough surfaces, enhancing Teflon’s already versatile nature.
6. Dry Lubricant
Dry Lubricant Teflon spray is similar to One Coat but designed specifically for high-speeds and pressures.
