Teflon Industrial Coatings
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is the scientific name for Teflon that is a synthetic fluoropolymer of Tetrafluoroethylene. It consists of carbon and fluorine molecules. It has a density of 2200 kg/m3 and a melting point of 327°C (621°F). Teflon coating is a highly popular option for many products and there are a number of advantages of using Teflon coatings.
Why Teflon Coating?
- This coating creates a suitable and non-stick exterior. It makes an item a more practical option for the customers.
- Non-stick layer makes a product more attractive.
- Teflon layer is waterproof and heat resistant. Its exterior part can be easily cleaned to eliminate trash.
- You may have some items that are affected by chemical reactions. For the most part, Teflon coatings are not affected by the atmospheric substances.
- Whatever may be the product, the right layer can help meet customer objectives. Using high quality coatings will boost the qualities and abilities of your items.
Apart from its non-stick properties, Teflon is best known for a number of other useful properties. It is a great choice for a range of components and applications. It can add unique attributes to stainless steel, brass, magnesium, carbon steel, steel alloys along with non-metallic surfaces, like plastics, rubber materials and fiberglass.
It has a density of 2200 kg/m3, a melting point of 600 K, Yield strength of 23 MPa, Dielectric strength (1 MHz) 60 MV/m and Bulk resistivity of 1016 Ω·m.
Application of Teflon Coatings in the Industrial Sector:
Before moving towards the industrial uses, let’s have a look at the household uses of Teflon or PTFE. A number of cookware brands market their Teflon pots, cutlery and pans. These products are safe, non-stick and easy-to-cook.
A number of hair styling products, including curling irons and flat irons are made of PTFE. When it comes to industrial applications, it is significant in the automotive industry. This coating is widely used in windshield wipers. Steel and chemical industries use this coating to make sure that their products are less susceptible to staining.
- Teflon coating has many more uses throughout different industries. When it comes to various frequencies, Teflon is the best sealant. It has dielectric strength.
- Teflon coatings save items from hazardous chemicals.
- It can withstand both blazing hot and freezing cold temperatures.
- In case of PTFE or Teflon Coating, the coefficient of friction is low
