 Crest Coating – Anaheim CA

Almost everyone has heard of Teflon™ Coatings  (PTFE) but are you familiar with the different types of Teflon™ and  their uses?

Benefits and uses:

  • Nonporous films from .0005 – .05
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Dry film lubrication
  • Provides great durability
  • Can withstand extreme high and low temperatures
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Nonstick

Here are three common types of Teflon™ Coatings:

  • FEP coatings – provides nonporous film, good nonstick characteristics and excellent chemical resistance.
  • PFA coatings – offer high continuous use temperatures, toughness, and film thicknesses of up to 1,000 micrometers
  • ETFE coatings -great chemical resistance and are the toughest of the fluoropolymer coatings

I’ve included only a brief summary of these coatings…so please visit our blog for complete information. (There are also additional facts and interesting history about Teflon™ Coatings there too.)

We would be happy to answer any questions you may have and assist you in the coating selection of your current or next project.  Email:
