In July 2013, Intech Services, the sole distributor of Teflon™ industrial coatings, released a new Teflon™ corrosion resistant coating (Teflon™ 857G line). These are the first truly water-based, low VOC, and easy-to-use coatings with a corrosion resistance of up to 3,000 salt spray hours. The corrosion coatings are specifically engineered for coating offshore, chemical processing, water treatment fasteners, and any threaded surface exposed to corrosive environments. The new coating targets applications requiring outstanding corrosion resistance, anti‐galling, and dry lubrication.
In October 2013, Teflon™ 857G-018 fluoropolymer product was placed on the DuPont SP11C specification for fluoropolymer-coated fasteners. DuPont SP11C specification is the corporate engineering standard for fasteners that require excellent corrosion resistance required for use in severe atmospheric corrosive environments.
The Teflon™ 857G line has a demand that continues to surpass expectations. “This coating has only been commercial for less than two years and is already a top five seller. Thousands of gallons are being applied in various threaded applications in North America. Our customers are excited to have coating options in applications that require anti-galling and corrosion resistance,” said Vice President of Intech Services, Chris Dohl.
These Teflon™ Corrosion Coatings are available in a variety colors including blue (857G-018), red (857G-508), yellow (857G-575), and black (857G-519). These new corrosion coatings are stocked at Intech Services and available for next day shipment. Chemours continues to work on developing additional colors that will be available in the near future.
Intech Services is a sales, marketing, and operations company for the industrial manufacturing segment. As the sole distributor for Teflon™ industrial coatings, Intech provides customers with customer service, sales, marketing, and technical support for the product line.
