Teflon Single Coat Systems

Teflon® single coat systems are self-priming, one coat blends of fluoropolymer with other resins, providing a cost effective solution to many industrial low friction problems. Within the family of Teflon® coatings offered by Chemours®, there are is selection of products that will provide a suitable solution to most application requirements. Chemours® continues to offer coating technologies based upon well proven formulations that have been engineered to meet the harshest of design requirements.

Primary objectives offered throughout the Teflon® One Coat range are to make available coatings for superior non-stick properties, combining a cost effective alternative to multi-layer systems, without compromising performance best suited for the requirements. Solutions for industrial requirements include coatings being of a low cure nature, but retaining a degree of flexibility. In addition, Teflon® One Coat systems include more sophisticated products for dry lubrication and non-stick. Other properties that form part of the characteristics of Teflon® coatings include excellent wear and abrasion resistance, as well as corrosion resistance. Coatings can be applied to most substrates, although elastomeric substrates will require an alternative product. Food processing industries benefit from the cost effectiveness and in-use temperature range offered by particular coatings, not all Teflon® one coat systems are food contact compliant. 

Teflon® single coat systems are fluoropolymer based, combined with suitable modifiers and resins to enhance resistance to abrasion. During the processing, components of the formulation stratify and the majority of the fluoropolymer properties, such as, low friction and non-stick are retained. In addition, the resistance to abrasion is preserved. These Teflon® coatings can often be applied to untreated and even smooth materials.
