PTFE (more commonly known by its brand name Teflon ®) is a fluoropolymer synthetic coating with a unique chemistry which prevents hot or cold materials permanently adhering to the surface of the metal product to which the Teflon is applied. Teflon has high adhesion resistance to both wet and dry materials, is oil and water repellent, and increases the corrosion resistance of metal substrates that may otherwise be attacked by aggressive liquids.
While Teflon and PTFE coatings are most commonly used for cookware and commercial baking applications such as pans and baking trays, they are also effective in reducing sticking and cleaning problems for rollers, conveyor belts, food processing equipment, packaging machinery and valves, just to name a few.
DECO can Teflon coat parts up to 2000mm long by 1100mm wide by 500mm high.
DECO currently offer black and grey Teflon coatings. Other colours can be considered for large orders on request.
Our Teflon coatings are around 5 –25 microns (subject to end use).
As Teflon is a fluoropolymer and paint-like coating it is non-conductive. If required, we can mask off some areas of your product to prevent them being coated.
Teflon coating has excellent corrosion resistance. If correctly pre-treated, it will withstand up to 1000 hours of salt spray testing (we also test our products using our in-house corrosion testing facilities). Stock black Teflon products have very good solvent and chemical resistance.
Teflon coatings have a broad temperature resistance, from cryogenic to temperatures up to 260 degrees Celsius.
No. There are other fluoropolymer brands that do the same job.
