Fluoropolymer Coatings for the Automotive Industry

Teflon® and other fluoropolymer coatings have great uses for the automotive industry. These coatings work fantastically as a dry lubricant for seat belt clips. And the coatings are excellent at preventing corrosion for pistons and fasteners, among other things. If you have a need for fluoropolymer coatings for automotive applications, Coating Solutions is your number one choice.

Fasteners and Fluoropolymer Coatings

Industrial bolts and nuts work much better when coated with fluoropolymers. Teflon® and other fluoropolymer coatings work great when intended for resistance to chemicals and abrasions. In situations where fasteners are repeatedly exposed to chemicals or scrapes, a Teflon® coating could extend their life, saving you money from labor and replacement parts.

Footwear Applications for Fluoropolymers

Shoe molds used in the footwear industry benefit greatly from a fluoropolymer coating. The nonstick properties of fluoropolymers means that shoes come out of molds easier, moving production along at a steady pace. If you are an established footwear company or a start-up, you can drastically benefit from having molds coated with fluoropolymers.

Fluoropolymer Coatings for the Hardware Industry

Saw blades perform greatly, and have long life spans, when coated with Teflon® and other fluoropolymers. Nonstick and low friction are two beneficial reasons to have saw blades coated with Teflon®. Also, when blades are coated with fluoropolymers, they are then more resistant to abrasions, which makes them last much longer than non-coated blades. Coating blades and other equipment for abrasion resistance helps a company’s bottom line.

Laundry Uses for Fluoropolymer Coatings

Dryer baskets work much better when covered with a nonstick fluoropolymer coating. Clothes don’t stick to the sides and dry better, faster. A laundromat who services their own machines would benefit from having their dryer baskets coated with a fluoropolymer.

Lawn & Garden Uses

Shears and scissors function more fluidly when a fluoropolymer coating is applied to them. Corrosion and abrasion resistant, dry lubricants, and nonstick are all features of Teflon® and other fluoropolymers, and these properties make them very useful when applied to scissors and shears. Uses are still being discovered for these coatings. So if you have an idea of how these coatings could aid your lawn and garden equipment, contact us today and we will help make it work.

Paper Industry Uses for Fluoropolymers

Press rolls used in the paper industry operate much more efficiently when Teflon® and other fluoropolymer coatings are applied to them. The nonstick abilities of fluoropolymers means that when they are applied to press rolls, paper will not cling to the rolls, jamming machines and creating work stoppages. These coatings also help prevent corrosion to press rolls as they are constantly exposed to drying pulp and paper. Coating rollers with Teflon® and other fluoropolymers helps extend their life and make operations run more efficiently.

Professional Teflon® Applicators

Coating Solutions has been coating parts with Teflon® and other fluoropolymers for an array of industries since 1995. But there are still many other industries that could benefit from these coatings. If you have a part that could benefit from a fluoropolymer coating, contact us today and we will help you determine which coat is ideal for your needs.

We provide fluoropolymer coatings for many industries throughout the country, including in Minnesota.
