The use of our range of fluoropolymers and plastic coatings also extends into the safety protection of glassware.

Glassware is useful in a wide range of laboratory and bespoke scientific applications such as;

  • Pharmaceutical plants
  • Food processing and packaging
  • Schools and colleges
  • Medical areas and hospitals

Our PTFE (Xylan® & Teflon®) coated glass provides the above industries with safety in their product. The PTFE (Xylan® & Teflon®) coating is transparent so it gives the user the ability to see the substance held in the glass container without concern for any breakages. The coating is also completely chemically resistant which means there is no risk of breakages to the glass via any chemical reaction, which makes this so ideal for laboratory equipment.

This means the general advantages of glass coating are that it reduces the risk of injury, reduces the liability risk and protects the surrounding work area from contamination.

Virgin PTFE coated glass is spray-applied to exterior surfaces and is therefore also suitable for items with an unusual shape.

Our fluoropolymer glass coatings also have an exceptionally wide temperature range (-200˚C to +250˚C) in addition to robust chemical protection. Additionally to this, as the coating is non-stick, the glass is also incredibly easy to clean.

A few examples of glassware we can coat are as follows;

  • Light Bulbs
  • Flasks
  • Lenses
  • Cylinders
  • Evaporators
  • Beakers
PTFE coatings act as a tough safety barrier, not only strengthening your equipment but also minimising shards and fragments.
One of the key strengths of fluoropolymer coatings is that even equipment with a complex geometry can be evenly coated.
Our wealth of industry experience means we can recommend the ideal coating for your application, and ensure that it is expertly applied.
Scientific Lab Equipment
Recently we were asked to design and manufacture a multi-function valve assembly to be used in a reaction station. A reaction station is simply a machine where various factors can be controlled and chemical reaction experiments are performed for scientific analysis.
