Teflon™ Coatings in the Chemical Processing Industry

Teflon coatings in the Chemical Processing industry

CHEMICAL PROCESSING

The chemical processing industry supports quite a few other crucial industries, including but not limited to the automotive, medical, food, computer, and clothing industries. That's why it's so important to provide the best Teflon™ products possible to chemical companies. With Teflon's excellent chemical and corrosion resistance, high durability, and non-stick properties, these coatings provide protection and consistent value for chemical processing. In chemical processing, Teflon routinely comes in contact with acids, polymers, petrochemicals, and inorganics, and stands up to all of them. It also provides a cost effective solution for manufacturers that allows them to rely on Teflon coatings for protection, instead of expensive metal parts and costlier treatments.



Common Teflon™ Coatings
PFA
In particular, Ruby Red PFA is a coating with superior permeation resistance and adds tremendous value to the chemical processing industry

ETFE
Tefzel ETFE coatings are common in the chemical processing industry, thanks to their extraordinarily high builds, able to reach thicknesses between 80 and 100 mils.
