Fluoropolymer and Teflon® coatings have many unique properties that make them useful for an array of industries. Here are some of the great and well-known properties that these coatings can bring to your industry.
Non stick properties are the biggest effect that Teflon® and other fluoropolymer coatings are known for. This has been known mostly do it consumer cooking pots and pans. Although the nonstick property for cooking is really amazing and useful, this quality is also great for other industries.
Other items that benefit from nonstick are cutting blades. When using blades in packaging machinery, the non stick property allows the blades to not stick to thin films of plastic or foil. Another industry is aerospace. Non stick is great for engine molds.
Teflon® and other fluoropolymer are oleophobic and hydrophobic. When the surface comes in contact with water, it beads up instead of spreading the water across the area of the coating which allows for easier cleanup. This can be beneficial for military, aerospace and again is sometimes nice for cooking.
The temperature resistance of fluoropolymers make them useful for a wide range of industries. Helps prevent burning when baking and cooking. Also, prevents over heating in the lighting, large industrial copiers and machinery industries. When you are working with machinery that is operated frequently, having temperature stability is incredibly important.
Resistant to Almost All Chemicals
Another great benefit is resistance to most known chemicals. If you work in a chemical processing industry, this can be extremely important because it will need to withstand a variety of chemicals. This characteristic is also beneficial for the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries, as well as for use on fasteners such as nuts and bolts.
