PTFE coating (or Teflon coatings)
PTFE coatings (often referred to as Teflon™ coatings - Teflon™ is a brand name of Chemours™) are used both as non-stick and as bonded coatings (to reduce friction).
The English terms Non-Stick-Coatings for non-stick coatings, Antifriction-Coatings for bonded coatings or the term Anti-Crack Coating are also frequently used, because noise is avoided by reducing friction.
Advantages of friction reducing coatings with PTFE
In Bonded coating systems the PTFE serves as a solid lubricant.
Other common solid lubricants are Moldän disulfide (Mos2), graphite or silicone.
Another positive effect can be the avoidance of a stick-slip effect, if the static friction of a sliding mating is significantly higher than the sliding friction. This often leads to a sliding back.
Coated surfaces are virtually maintenance-free. In addition, leakage of grease or oil is excluded by as what the name suggests dry lubricant.
PTFE coating based on polytetrafluoroethylene are characterized by a high temperature resistance.
For example, a pan coated with "Teflon™" can be used up to 260 ° C for food preparation.
Chemours™ Licensed Industrial Applicator (LIA)
The Adelhelm Group has been licensed by the company Chemours™ (Teflon™) for 15 years.
Teflon™ coatings from Adelhelm thus comply with the high quality standards of Chemours™. In addition, licensing ensures that high-quality Chemours™ products are used for Teflon™ coatings.
What hides behind the name Teflon™?
Teflon™ is not a product or brand name, but stands for an umbrella brand / product family of the company Chemours™. Various fluoropolymers are concealed under the name. PTFE PFA and FEP are particularly worth mentioning here. These are used as Teflon™ coating for non-stick coating, dry lubricant coating, chemical protection coating, corrosion protection coating and as electrically insulating coating.
