Dupont Teflon industrial coatings have become an indispensable material for engineers in the automotive industry, thanks to there unique properties:

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • High chemical resistance
  • Extreme temperature resistance
  • Nonstick
  • Nonwetting
  • Electrically non-conductive

New ideas are constantly being  developed to create smoother-running, longer-lasting parts which replace expensive materials and result in lower costs to the manufacturer and consumer.

Teflon industrial coating are used to solve difficult problems and to enhance performance of existing products. They contribute to higher efficiency of production processes, and often help solve environmental issues.

Teflon industrial coatings can be applied on steel, aluminum, glass, ceramic and some rubbers. From trunk springs to the smallest of nuts, the scope of possibilities goes far beyond what is shown here. It goes as far as imagination allows….
