Another field where Coating Technology S.r.l. invested to get deeper knowledge on the different modalities of surface treatments is the aeronautical sector, as it is essential for it to develop coatings of better capacities in terms of resistance to wear and to friction, in order to fully support the components for aviation.
Coating Technology S.r.l. carries out PTFE covering and coating treatments. PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), is a carbon and fluorine-based compound employed as a non-stick coating, particularly widespread and appreciated for its excellent capacities in terms of resistance even to chemicals, oxidation and high temperatures. These PTFE coatings can provide an item with surface properties such as anti-sticking, flow, and chemical resistance to the base material; they can cover metal, plastics, rubber or carbon fiber surfaces with a thickness that varies from 5 to 500 mm.
Among the most reliable and renowned PTFE coatings, the Fuchs Lubritech and Klüber Lubrification ones, stand out as they own excellent properties of resistance to elevated pressure, wear and chemicals.
The advantages that PTFE coating surface treatments can give to the aeronautical sector are properties that hardly can be conferred through other coating treatments:
