Common Types of Teflon Coating When we hear the word Teflon what comes to our minds is something that is non-stick, and although this is true there is more to Teflon coatings than providing a non stick surface. In the industrial and engineering worlds, Teflon coatings are very important to machines and products because it either makes or breaks them. There are many different types of Teflon coasting and below are some of the most common types used. The most popular type of Teflon coating is the Teflon PTFE, which is short for poly tetrafluoroethylene. What makes up Teflon PTFE, which is a non-stick coating, is a primer and then a top coat. PTFE can handle the highest temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit among all the other types of fluoropolymers. The coefficient of friction of PTFE is very low and this is one of its other advantages. It is also resistant to abrasions and many types of chemicals. Teflon PTFE comes only in liquid form and it water-based, which is a downside to this type of Teflon coating.
Companies Tips for The Average Joe
If you are looking for a film that is non-porous then Teflon FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer) is perhaps your best option. It melts and flows when it is subjected to the baking process. If you want a very non-stick coating that is resistant to common chemicals then you are looking for Teflon FEP. It also comes in powder form and as a water based liquid.
A Brief Rundown of Companies
The third type, the Teflon PFA is quite similar in some ways to FEP. Teflon PFA can tolerate high temperatures during continuous use which FEP cannot , and it can reach up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. PFA or perfluoroalkocy is also tougher that FEP or PTFE, so it can handle a lot more than the first two types of Teflon coating. Like FEP it comes both in powder or water based liquid form. Tefzel EFTE is probably the toughest fluoropolymer that is sold in the market today which is also sold by Teflon under the tefzel name. This type of coating is not completely fluorinated which is important in some application. This type comes only in power form. Since Teflon one coat is solvent based instead of water based, it is useful for some applications. Since this type of coasting has been blended, it is extremely tough and resistant to abrasions. Teflon one coat can sometimes work well with smooth metal surfaces, something which the other coatings cannot do and will need a rough surface to help it stick. Teflon Dry Lubricant is the best choice when it comes to situations that involve a lot of pressure and high velocities. It is like one coat in that it is solvent-based rather than water-based, and this particular coating is designed a bit differently so that it can work better under high amounts of pressure or velocity. Aluminum, steel, steel alloys, stainless steel, brass, glass, rubber, fiberglass, and even plastic can be applied with Teflon coatings.
