Teflon™ Coatings in the Oil & Gas Industry

Teflon coatings in the Oil and Gas industry


Recently released Teflon™ products have significantly higher UV protection, adding to the product's already impressive versatility. One industry benefitting from this improvement is the oil and gas industry. With so many elements of the oil and gas industry exposed to constant sunlight, UV protection is one of the industry's primary concerns. Now that Teflon can protect against extended UV exposure, it can bring its traditional nonstick, anti-galling, and corrosion resistant properties to a critical industry.
