Fluorinated ethylene propylene coatings are nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide smooth non-porous films. Because the coating is non-porous its chemical resistance is good. These are non-wetting and have a very low coefficient of friction. This coating has excellent release properties and is often used as a mold release coating. It can withstand a maximum use temperature of 450°F. This coating is typically applied to a thickness of 1-2 mils.
Fluorocarbon coatings are formulated from the family of fluoropolymers, which includes Teflon and others and exhibit many of the properties associated with these unique materials. Utilizing the chemistry of carbon and fluorine, fluorocarbon coatings, impart properties not attainable with other organic coatings when applied over suitable substrates: outstanding chemical and corrosion resistance, non-wetting surfaces, exceptional thermal stability, extremely low coefficient of friction and excellent non-stick qualities.
