PTFE, FEP, PFA, and ETFE Coatings /High Temp Coatings (Batch Oven Processing)

Fluorocarbon-based polymers are unique materials in that the polymer is characterized to have very low coefficients of friction and have outstanding chemical and thermal resistance properties.

These fluoropolymers do play an important role in the chemistry and mechanics of how parts will function in their finished state.

  • PTFE – Polytetrafluoroethylene 
  • FEP – Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene
  • PFA – Perfluoroalkoxy Alkanes
  • ETFE – Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene

What are you looking to achieve in choosing the right fluoropolymer material for your job, and which is the most important to you?

Chemical Resistance – ETFE, PFA
Low Friction – PTFE, FEP
Release (Non-Stick) – FEP
FDA Conformance – Options available across all fluoropolymer lines.
High or Low Temperature Resistance – PFA, PTFE 
Durability/Toughness – ETFE, PFA, PTFE
Electrical Insulation – ETFE, FEP, PFA 
Non-wetting – PTFE, FEP
Abrasion Resistance – ETFE, PFA, PTFE 

These fluoropolymer materials generally oven-cure at high temperatures. Our high temperature batch oven allows us to cure your fluoropolymer-coated parts following the specification of the selected material’s product data sheet.   

Let us help you determine your fluoropolymer coating needs.

  • What is the reason for coating the part?
  • What material is the substrate?
  • What is the end-use maximum operating temperature?
  • Will there be chemical exposure?
  • Will there be contact with food?
  • Are there any abrasion/durability concerns?
  • What are the heat limitations of the part?
  • What are the part dimensions?
