Thermally sprayed coatings is a process where the material is heated and small particles are projected onto the prepared surface, where they adhere and form a continuous coating.
AFT Fluorotec can manufacture a wide range of components using our USP Class VI PTFE compliant material.
PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is an extremely hard-wearing material used for a wide variety of applications and is well-known for its non-stick properties.
PTFE can creep and deform under heavy loads, a disadvantage that can be avoided by adding a filler in order to benefit from the properties of both materials. Fillers can also add properties such as improved thermal conductivity, for applications that demand good heat dissipation.
Victrex PEEK material is a semicrystalline thermoplastic typically used as a replacement for machined metals in a wide variety of high performance end-use applications.
