The 7 Properties of Teflon®

NON-STICK 1. NON-STICK
Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a Teflon® finish. Although tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily.

 


NON-STICK 2. LOW COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION
The coefficient of friction of Teflon® is generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load, sliding speed, and particular Teflon® coating used.

 


NON-STICK 3. NON-WETTING
Since surfaces coated with Teflon® are both oleophobic and hydrophobic, they are not readily wetted. Cleanup is easier and more thorough - in many cases, surfaces are self-cleaning.

 


NON-STICK 4. HEAT RESISTANCE
Teflon® industrial coatings can operate continuously at temperatures up to 260°C/500°F and can be used for intermittent service up to 316°C/600°F with adequate ventilation.

 


NON-STICK 5. UNIQUE ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES
Over a wide range of frequencies, Teflon® has high dielectric strength, low dissipation factor, and very high surface resistivity. By special techniques, it can even be made electroconductive enough to be used as an anti-static coating.

 


NON-STICK 6. CRYOGENIC STABILITY
Many Teflon® industrial coatings withstand severe temperature extremes without loss of physical properties. Teflon® industrial costings may used at temperatures as low as -270°C/-454°F.

 


NON-STICK 7. CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
Teflon® is normally unaffected by chemical environments. The only chemicals known to affect all Teflon® industrial coatings are molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents.
