Teflon Coatings 690645

The four major fluorocarbon polymers used by the coating industry today are discussed. The fluorine content and the strong carbon bond of these four polymers account for their unusual characteristics of chemical inertness, resistance to degradation, thermal stability, and low surface friction. As the fluorination is increased, the physical properties of the various classes of polymers are affected. Tables are presented illustrating these variances.
In conclusion, the polymer polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is analyzed. Its chemical and physical properties, methods of preparation and application, as well as uses are presented. An unlimited field is visualized for nonstick coatings (Teflon-S) with long lasting lubrication characteristics in both consumer as well as military applications.
