Teflon™ Coatings in the Aerospace Industry

Teflon coatings in the Aerospace industry

AEROSPACE

In recent years, the aerospace industry has seen the founding of the privatized space sector and the expansion of established companies into near-space flight. With those, as well as constant improvements in traditional flight technology, products used in the aerospace industry have to stand up to rigorous testing, demanding operating conditions, and the increasingly common demands of space flight. As such, Teflon™ coatings used in the aerospace industry are highly specified, highly qualified, and resistant to a wide range of stresses. They offer durability and toughness for an industry with unique needs.

 

Common Teflon™ Coatings
FEP
954G-3XX, 959G-2XX, and 953G-401/506

PTFE
