Teflon® Coatings

TEFLON® is a registered trade mark of DuPont for its line of fluorocarbon coatings. These coatings have excellent corrosion protection, non-stick, heat resistance, and low friction characters. Depending on which type of Teflon®, the coatings can function between -450°F and 500°F. There are three main classifications of types of fluorocarbon coatings: PTFE, FEP, and PFA, with a fourth that is one of or combination of the three mixed with various resins to increase its hardness and wear capabilities.

All Teflon® coatings must have a bake to sinter or melt flow the coating. The curing, depending on the Teflon®, is usually 350°F to 800°F. Please make sure your product can withstand the curing temperatures.
