Fluoropolymer Coatings

Fluoropolymer Coatings

Fluoropolymer coatings are blends of high performance resins and Fluoropolymer lubricants. Most of the useful properties of Fluoropolymer are due to fluorine, the most electro-negative element and the most reactive non- metal. Its atomic radius is the smallest next to hydrogen, and it forms extremely strong bonds with other elements. When reacted with Carbon in Fluoropolymer, the extremely strong, tight bond produces an extraordinary combination of properties. These single coat thin films provide excellent corrosion and chemical resistance. Other benefits of Fluoropolymer coatings include reduced friction, resistance to galling, non stick, non wetting, electrical resistance and abrasion resistance. Fluoropolymer coatings are applied to fasteners and various OEM components to provide a longer life before replacement.


Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as household appliances, aluminium extrusions, and automobile and bicycle parts. Newer technologies allow other materials, such as MDF (medium-density fibreboard), to be powder coated using different methods.
