What is Teflon® Coating For?
Teflon® Coating is a product that is sprayed on objects and then backed until it forms a solid coat. The coating puts a waterproof, non-corrosive protective layer on products. The most common industries that use Teflon® are: Commercial Bake Ware, Food Processing, Footwear, Laundry, Lighting, Office Automation, Packaging.
Where does Teflon® get its name?
Teflon® is the brand name that was trademarked for the chemical compound polytetrafluoroethylene, often referred to as (PTFE). PTFE was discovered by accident in 1938. Due to the unique properties of PTFE (low corrosion and abrasion, high temperature resistance, water resistance, and non-stick abilities), it was quickly trademarked as Teflon® by DuPont. Over the past century Teflon® are now used widely across nearly all industries.
Benefits of Teflon® Coating Spray
As discussed above, Teflon® has many unique properties, creating many benefits. Teflon® is incredibly popular today because of its strength and versatility. One of the most unique and most known properties of Teflon® is nonstick. Almost all substances will easily be removed from Teflon®, and therefore it is great for cooking and bake ware, packaging, the automobile industry, manufacturing, etc.
Another benefit of Teflon® is that it has a low coefficient of friction. Friction is measured on a scale from 0 to 1, 1 being a high coefficient. Friction is defined as the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers and material elements sliding against one another. A low coefficient is highly sought after in some cases because friction creates thermal energy and can wear away an object, leading to performance degradation or damage to components.
Non-wetting is another benefit of Teflon®. As a result of Teflon® having low surface tension, coating objects in Teflon® makes them easy to clean.
Heat resistance is another great feature. Industrial applications of Teflon® coating can withstand heat up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit, and as low as -110 degrees Fahrenheit.
