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.
