PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is an extremely hard-wearing material used for a wide variety of applications and is well-known for its non-stick properties.
Teflon is a commonly know brand of PTFE, primarily used in the bakeware industry. This article looks at some of the benefits of Teflon coatings and the reasons why it's so popular.
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.
This is the second part of our series looking at common coating problems that can crop up during the coating process. Here are AFT Fluorotec, we understand how these coating problems occur and how to prevent them. Coating Problem #8: Mud Cracking...
