Home » Coating Range » PTFE Teflon

Polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE, is the commonly used fluoropolymer, and one that most people are familiar with.

The most common application of PTFE that people will be familiar with is as a non-stick coating for kitchen cookware (pans, baking trays etc.).

Apart from being used in the kitchen, PTFE is used as a cost-effective solution for a wide variety of industries, ranging from Food Processing and Packaging through to Oil & Gas, Chemical Processing, and many other industries and processes where the non-stick and release properties of PTFE contribute to improved product and process performance.

Australian Non-stick Coatings stock a wide range of  different PTFE Teflon coatings, as it is not a case of one coating suiting all applications. Our range of PTFE coatings include both One Coat and Two-Coat (primer/topcoat) systems.

The basic properties of PTFE which make it a coating of high commercial value are:

  • Exception chemical resistance
  • Good resistance to heat and low temperature
  • Good electrical insulating power in hot and wet environments
  • Good resistance to light, UV and weathering
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Low dielectric constant/dissipation factor
  • Strong anti-adhesion properties
  • Flexibility
  • Good fatigue resistance under low stress
  • Availability of food, medical and high-purity grades
  • Low water absorption

The most common applications that Australian Non-stick Coatings will recommend a PTFE Teflon coating are:

• Tray Sealing and Thermoformer Vacuum Plates
• HDPE/PE Fusion and Butt Welding Heater Plates
• Rotational and Injection Moulding Moulds
• Automotive Components
• Fasteners
• Filters
• Textile Rollers
• Laboratory Equipment
