How Industry Benefits by Fluoropolymer Coatings

Fluoropolymer coatings are low surface energy, overcome friction or sticking.

Whether your industry is automotive, building or construction, electronics, chemical processing, medical, aerospace, food and beverage, or plastics, rubber and molding ─ discover what others have, across the globe, with fluoropolymer coatings.

Fluoropolymer coatings bring unique and useful attributes to surfaces of metals, plastics and rubber. Characteristics can include: low friction, dry film lubrication, chemical corrosion protection, dielectric strength, resistance to wetting, and more.

How do you choose the right coating? Beyond the immediate performance benefits needed, consider its environment: mechanical, physical, thermal, and chemical.

Is yours a motion of sliding, the need to eliminate seizure or surface degradation? Maybe it is to tighten your torque, lower your coefficient of friction, or overcome friction, wear or adhesion.

Surfaces are more than just a separation between bodies. It is the energy between them, on an atomic- or molecular scale, that ultimately defines their performance or behavior. High surface energies are associated with covalent metals and solids, while polymer-based materials containing fluorine offer low surface energies.

Fluoropolymer coatings are fluorine-based and, therefore, offer low surface energy ─ which is ideal for dry film lubrication, a lower coefficient of friction, resistance to adhesion, wetting or spreading.
