Since their discovery in 1938 by DuPont chemist Roy Plunkett, Teflon™ industrial coatings have gained acceptance in a wide variety of applications. By expanding the basic technology, Teflon™ industrial coatings continue to enhance the functional qualities in today's high tech applications. Teflon™ industrial coatings are available in a full range of liquid and powder forms. The versatility of these coatings allow for almost unlimited application to a wide variety of parts and configurations – always adding value that goes far beyond the inherent nonstick coating qualities.

There are several families of fluoropolymer coatings offered. Within each product family, there are a number of Teflon™ products to provide you with the best industrial coating for your particular application.  Below is a general overview of the basic fluoropolymer coating technologies available.

Teflon™ PTFE Coatings

PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) nonstick coatings are two-coat (primer/topcoat) systems. These products have the highest operating temperature of any fluoropolymer (260°C/500°F), an extremely low coefficient of friction, good abrasion resistance, and good chemical resistance. Teflon™ PTFE is available only in water-based liquid form.

Teflon™ FEP Coatings

FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer) nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide nonporous films. These coatings provide excellent chemical resistance. In addition to low friction, Teflon™ FEP coatings have excellent nonstick coating properties. Maximum use temperature is 204°C/400°F. Teflon™ FEP coatings are available in water-based liquid and powder forms.

 

  • Teflon™ 532G-8110 - FEP Powder Topcoat - Clear
  • Teflon™ 856G-200 - FEP Liquid Topcoat - Clear
  • Teflon™ 856G-204 - FEP Liquid Topcoat - Green

                           

Teflon™ PFA Coatings


Like FEP, PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide nonporous films. Teflon™ PFA coatings offer the additional benefits of higher continuous use temperature (260°C/500°F), greater toughness than Teflon™ PTFE or Teflon™FEP, and some Teflon™ PFA coatings can have film thicknesses of up to 1,000 micrometers (40 mils). This combination of properties makes Teflon™ PFA an excellent choice for a wide variety of uses, especially those involving chemical resistance. Teflon™ PFA protective coatings are available in both water-based liquid and powder forms.

  • Teflon™ 858G-917 - PFA Permeation Resistant Liquid Topcoat - Ruby Red

                           

Teflon™ ETFE Coatings

ETFE is a copolymer of ethylene and tetrafluoroethylene and is also sold under the Tefzel® trademark. Although not fully fluorinated, Tefzel® ETFE has excellent chemical resistance and can operate continuously at 149°C/300°F. This resin is the toughest of the fluoropolymer coatings and can be applied at film builds up to 2,000 micrometers (80 mils) to provide a highly durable protective coating. ETFE is available in powder form.

Teflon™ One Coat Systems

These solvent-based liquid coatings are formulated with special blends of fluoropolymers and other high-performance resins to improve the toughness and abrasion resistance of these protective coatings. Because the film components stratify during baking, most of the fluoropolymer properties (such as low friction and nonstick coating characteristics) are retained. The resins provide adhesion and abrasion resistance. These Teflon™ products can sometimes be applied to smooth, clean metal. Bake requirements vary, depending on the specific coating from 325F to 600F.

Teflon™ Primers

Teflon™ primers are an effective way to prepare a surface before the coating is applied. Primers ensure proper adhesion, increase durability, and give additional protection to the substrate. With the use of our primers, the coating is given a smooth surface to bind to, which creates a more protective layer. This additional layer decreases porosity of the coating to the substrate.
