Benefits Of PFA Coatings

Benefits Of PFA CoatingsTeflon™ perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) industrial coatings melt and flow during baking to form nonporous films, offering superior nonstick properties suitable for industrial bakeware applications. With higher continuous use temperatures (500degF), superior dielectric strength, and chemical resistance properties, Teflon™ PFA industrial coatings are more durable than PTFE or FEP alternatives due to their chemical resistance properties. They can be applied on pumps, tanks, valves, vessels used in chemical processing industries due to their chemical resistance properties; Teflon™ PFA industrial coatings provide nonstick properties suitable for industrial bakeware applications as well.

Benefits Of Utilizing PFA Coatings

PFA coatings provide numerous advantages, such as chemical resistance, electrical current resistance, non-stick properties, high release capabilities and corrosion protection. They can be used on common substrates to produce uniform coverage of complex shapes in thin or thick films that provide high temperature stability.

PFA coating systems are highly sought-after due to their wide range of thicknesses for fluoropolymers. PFAs are thermoplastics with the performance of PTFE, enabling them to uniformly coat complex shapes with thin or thick films. The thickness of PFA coatings you apply depends on the substrate, coating chemistry and desired primary coating properties. Like most fluoropolymers, PFA coatings possess excellent release capabilities and corrosion protection for common consumer and industrial uses. PFA coatings are commonly employed for chemical resistance and electrical current resistance. PFAs are high-temp coatings that typically bake at over 650degF, creating a purified and durable barrier on common substrates like aluminum, steel, and steel alloys.

PFA thickness options: The thickness of a final coating is ultimately determined by the chemical composition you select. However, PFA coatings have maximum dry film thickness options of 3-40mil, giving you plenty of options to select from for desirable properties like abrasion resistance, smoothness, and permeation resistance. With such versatility in mind, selecting an optimal option for you can be easier than ever!

Does thicker equal better: It is tempting to think that making the coating thicker will automatically increase its abrasion resistance. But this is not always the case; more often than not, a coating’s abrasion resistance properties depend on its chemical makeup or specific additive content. The manufacturer usually specifies an ideal thickness range in their data sheet specifications.
