PTFE - better known under the brand name Teflon® from the American chemical company DuPont - generally known from coated frying pans.
But PTFE is also an indispensable material for industrial non-stick and dry lubrication coatings, due to the numerous positive characteristics which are unbeatable by any other plastic material. Without PTFE, many modern procedures would be inconceivable. New applications are being developed all the time.
PTFE coatings are outstandingly suitable on metals, glass and ceramics. Thereby, no limits with regard to dimensions are set either upwards or downwards. Minute objects of a few millimeters as well as giants, e.g. construction parts, with its maximum oven sizes of 7 x 5 x 5 m and/or 9 x 2.5 x 2.5 m can be coated.
