Outstanding Properties

Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a TEFLON® finish. Although tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily.

Low coefficient of friction
The coefficient of friction of TEFLON® is generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load, sliding speed, and particular TEFLON® coating used.

Since surfaces coated with TEFLON® are both oleophobic and hydrophobic, they are not readily wetted. Cleanup is easier and more thorough — in many cases, surfaces are self-cleaning.

Heat resistance
TEFLON® industrial coatings can operate continuously at temperatures up to 270°C/550°F and can be used for intermittent service on higher temperature with adequate ventilation. (Please contact us!)

Unique electrical properties
Over a wide range of frequencies, TEFLON® has high dielectric strength, low dissipation factor, and very high surface resistivity. By special techniques, it can even be made electro conductive enough to be used as an anti-static coating.

Cryogenic stability
Many TEFLON® industrial coatings withstand severe temperature extremes without loss of physical properties. TEFLON® industrial coatings may be used at temperatures as low as -270°C/-454°F.

Chemical resistance
TEFLON® is normally unaffected by chemical environments. The only chemicals known to affect all TEFLON® industrial coatings are molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents.
