Teflon is a synthetic fluoropolymer that is known for its non-stick, heat-resistant, and chemical-resistant properties. These properties make it an ideal material for a wide range of industrial applications.
At MBI under the brand name Tufflon® we offer a wide range of Teflon© coatings with fluoropolymer variations that are tailored to specific properties needed. Such Tufflon types include FEP, PTFE, PVD, ETFE, and more!
Benefits of using Teflon coatings
- Non-stick properties: Teflon© coatings have a very low coefficient of friction, which makes them very slippery. This means that parts coated with Teflon will not stick to each other, or let substances stick to them, even when they are dry, wet, or oily. This is a major advantage in many industrial applications and manufacturing.
- Heat resistance: Teflon© coatings can withstand temperatures up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes them ideal for applications where heat is a factor, such as in the food processing industry, the plastics industry, and the electronics industry.
- Chemical resistance: Teflon© coatings are resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, and solvents. This makes them ideal for applications where chemicals are present, such as in the chemical processing industry, the oil and gas industry, and the pharmaceutical industry.
- Durability: Teflon© coatings are very durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. This makes them a long-lasting and cost-effective solution for many industrial applications.
- In addition to these benefits, Teflon© coatings are also typically NSF-approved, which means that they are safe for use in food processing applications.
There are many industries that use Teflon© coatings. Industries like Aerospace, Automotive, Tire & Rubber, Chemical Processing, and Food processing just to name a few. The general manufacturing sector takes advantage of such coatings in applications such as:
- Textile industry Rolls
- Dry cans
- Mold applications
- Converting industry parts
- Industrial valve components
- Pump components
- Die Casting Fixtures
- Filtration equipment
- Food Processing
- Plastics manufacturing
- Chutes and Conveyor applications
- Plus, many other Application /Industries – We’ve got you covered.
