Teflon™ industrial coatings are highly durable and long lasting performance coatings that have a distinct application process and qualities that offer solutions in a variety of industrial markets. This series of blogs will highlight one of these inherent properties of Teflon™ coatings and how these properties can solve a variety of problems.
Nonstick: Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a Teflon™ industrial coating. While tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily. Teflon™ coatings’ nonstick properties greatly reduce sliding wear and provide excellent release. Anti-adhesion is especially important in the food processing and plastic molding industries because the molds used in these environments must have excellent release or else a significant amount of material will be left behind in the mold. PTFE, PFA, and FEP have the best nonstick qualities.
