Types of Teflon Coating
Because of the several number of uses of teflon, it is the most common household name across many different types of materials. The military grade equipment can be benefitted with the teflon when used in the non-stick pans as lubrication. The teflon is very versatile that this is used commonly in the manufacturing industries and be used in many kinds of applications.
It is important to have the knowledge on how the teflon is going to be used by looking at the different kinds of teflons and how it is going to be used in the manufacturing industries to attain the greater qualities where it is being for. We have to make sure that we are to compare the various types of the common teflon and make sure to compare how to differ each of the teflon.
We are to look first at the Polytetrafluoroethylene or the PTFE that is considered to be famous of all the Teflon brands. This have the fluorocarbon solid that do contains the carbon and the fluorine too. The good thing about this is that it has the hydrophobic characteristic which means that this will not wet the PTFE.
The next one is Teflon FEP. This type of teflon is going to be non-porous film. The FEP does melt and this one flows around the certain object that you will be coating. The best thing about this kind of teflon is that this be useful in coating those intricate objects that needs some coating from the teflon FEP.
One of the huge advantage of this FEP is that it will be resistant to the commonly used chemical and this will not be too harsh that it cannot be able to penetrate to the characteristic of the teflon PFTE. This can be considered a huge plus since this can widen its range of uses for those objects that is coated. The good thing about this is that it will make those not-resistant objects to be resistant once it will be coated with the teflon FEP. This can also contain the non-stick characteristic that can be used for the variety of uses. You can also find a teflon FEP both in the water-base liquid that can be same with the PTFE, and those of that of the powder that is commonly being used in the manufacturing industry. With the two options available you can be able to pick the one that you think will work best in you and the one that will be beneficial for your company and will not cause trouble in the end.
