Electrical - PTFE Teflon Xylan Coating

Conductivity and insulation, as well as abrasion resistance, is high on the agenda of PTFE coatings, giving protection to a large range of electrical devices, such as, connectors and instrument control devices. Portable electrical equipment is another candidate for uses of PTFE coating systems, particularly within the consumer product ranges, such as mixers, iron sole plates and many other domestic appliances.

Typical uses for PTFE, usually recognised as being Teflon® and Xylan coatings, would be for use in the production of light fittings, temperature gauges, as well as personal care products, as well as for a wide range of electrical components. PTFE coatings are easy to clean and are stain and abrasion resistant, and for products that require additional requirements, PTFE coatings are UV resistant.
