PTFE, or polytetrafluoroethylene, èis a carbon and fluorine-based compound employed to coat different surfaces after a chemical/mechanical pre-treatment and then subject to heat treatment: PTFE coating is used as a non-sticking coating for different technical applications.
PTFE coating is indeed widespread and extensively employed thanks to its excellent features of resistance to any temperature (from -40°C and +180°C), and to chemicals, which are unable to break its bonds. Neither the aggressive acids can attack this coating.
In addition to this, it is resistant to oxidation and featured by a low friction coefficient; such features improve anti-sticking and smoothness properties and the chemical resistance of the base material.
Due to its excellent properties, this coating is employed in many industrial sectors: food, aeronautics, medical, pharmaceutic, cosmetic, automotive, rubber and plastics. Coating Technology S.r.l. deals with PTFE treatments and coatings, particularly the covering of o-rings and rubber elements through transparent or coloured-based bonded coatings, permitting any customization needed.
Coating Technology S.r.l. mainly employs PTFE coatings from Klüber Lubrification and GLEITMO RLC coating from Fuchs Lubritech, choosing among the most resistant and efficient coatings in the sector.
Coating Technology S.r.l. performs every PTFE coating treatment in full compliance with the current regulations in the field, employing different procedures for the treatment with the ultimate goal of best optimising your production process, strengthening all components properties.
