Teflon Coating Services in Sydney

Teflon ® (PTFE ) is a synthetic material. It’s unique chemistry is particularly useful in preventing hot or cold solid materials permanently adhering to the surface. It has high levels of resistance to the absorption of wet materials, it is very easy to clean, and it increases corrosion resistance to metal substrates otherwise attacked by aggressive liquids.

Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a Teflon coated finish. Although tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances will release easily.

Using the original idea of non-stick coatings for cookware, non-stick coating systems have been developed to encompass a range of single, two or three coat systems; each system has been designed to perform a particular function to match customer requirements.

These coatings are applied to a clean or freshly blasted surface by either liquid spray or powder applications. Curing of the coating is normally done at approx. 400˚C. The product must be able to withstand these processing temperatures.

Teflon applications include reducing sticking and cleaning problems of rollers, conveyor belts and of miscellaneous food processing equipment, cook-wear, commercial bake-wear, packaging machinery and many other engineering applications.

The benefits of Teflon include non-stick and easy to clean coatings that have a broad temperature resistance, (from cryogenic to 260°C), the inertness of the polymer and coating to many environments, and food-contact compliance.

Teflon coating on cookware in Sydney

Nonstick Cookware

The application that made Teflon famous. It’s non-stick and hydrophobic qualities make for an excellent cookware coating both in domestic and commercial applications.

Pentair Valve Bodies

Valve Components

A Teflon coat allows valves to operate smoothly due to its high heat and chemical resistance.

Printing Press teflon coatings

Low Friction Coatings

Teflon is commonly used to reduce friction on crucial production line processes including chutes, packaging machinery and any machine components that are subject to paint, glue or other types of unwanted build-up.

More on Teflon

Thickness: 5-25 microns (subject to end use).

Uniformity: Very uniform.

Hardness: 50-65 HB

Wear resistance: Paint like, subject to product formulation.

Gloss: From clear/wet looks to matt films (subject to volumes).

Colours: Currently black and grey. Can be changed for large orders.

Flexibility: Similar to paint-type coatings.

Toxicity: Teflon coatings are approved for food contact applications.

Corrosion resistance: Excellent corrosion resistance, with correctly pretreated products (either blasting, degassing or conversion coating) Teflon will withstanding 1000 hours of salt spray testing.

Chemical resistance: Generally, the stock black Teflon products have very good chemical and solvent resistance.

Standards: There are long established Australian and international standards for Teflon coating on mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium products.

Conductivity: Teflon, being an fluoropolymer and a paint-like coating, is non-conductive and can be masked off in areas if required.

Cost: Our charges will be subject to a number of factors such as volumes, processing conditions and rack requirements. Like many of our processes, the labour for racking, un-racking, inspection and packing play a very significant part in our overall charges. Please contact us to find out more.

Size limitations: Impreglon can Teflon coat parts up to 2000 mm long by 1100mm wide by 500mm high.

Recommended Uses

Teflon coating is a very specialised coating that can resolve many problems in the finishing of products. With this said, the need for special racking and large volume production runs means it is not suitable for all types of work.

Before we process any work, we always provide a specification or a service requirement for the Teflon coating so we can ensure our process meets all your needs, no matter how great or small.

Teflon Case Study: ACO Rotational Moulds

ACO’s challenge was that its moulded products were not releasing from their moulds as quickly as they would have liked. That’s where we came in.
