Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin, Kynar, is extremely non-reactive with many different substances and is a pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer that is often used when a coating that is extremely pure, strong, and able to resist heat, bases, acids, and solvents is needed. It also creates very little smoke when a fire occurs, and it is easier to melt because its melting point is around 350oF, which is quite a bit lower than most other fluoropolymers.
Xylan is an industrial coating that is often used in the automotive industry. It is a registered trademark of the Whitford Corporation. Xylan is a fluoropolymer, which is a polymer that is based in fluorocarbon and has strong carbon-fluorine bonds. Fluoropolymers, like Xylan, are highly resistant to acids, bases, and solvents. Fluoropolymers are appealing for use as industrial coatings because they have properties that make them non-stick
Teflon® and Xylan® PTFE coatings are synonymous with excellent release and non-stick and therefore makes for the most logical solution, to enable suitable de-molding, would be for the application of a PTFE coating.

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), commonly known as Teflon®, is a fluoropolymer made of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) molecules. PTFE has some exceptional properties which makes it a widely used compound for numerous applications. It’s hydrophobic (it is not wet by water or any substances containing water due to the high electronegativity of fluorine), highly non-reactive, and has one of the lowest friction rates found in solids. PTFE coatings are one of the world’s most sought-after
