Industrial Teflon Coatings: Glossy vs. Matte Finishes

Upon completing the configuration of your product, you’ll want to ensure its longevity and durability. One way this is achieved is by applying an industrial Teflon coating, made to enhance protection against normal wear and tear through regular use. Teflon coatings are available in both powder and liquid, and offer nearly unlimited application to a wide variety of products and configurations. Teflon coatings are used for a number of their properties including:

Chemical Inertness

  • Teflon coatings are unaffected from corrosion due to environmental chemicals

Superior Dielectric Stability

  • Teflon fluoropolymer coatings have an incredibly high dielectric strength, and some coatings can be formulated to be electro conductive enough to be used for anti-static properties

Lower Coefficient of Friction

  • Depending on the load, the coefficient of friction for Teflon coatings are between 0.05 to 0.20

Non-Wetting

  • Teflon coatings are considered to be ‘self-cleaning’ because Teflon is both oleophobic and hydrophobic

 

However, if you’re also looking to also enhance the aesthetic quality of your product, there are a two coating finishes you can choose from: glossy and matte finishes.

Opting for a Glossy Finish

  • Industrial Teflon coatings are capable of reflecting light. Opting for a glossy finish will ensure maximum light reflectivity.
  • Glossy finish Teflon coatings are composed of mixing advanced polymer with monomers that serve to maximize potential for light reflectivity.
  • Items or products that typically utilize glossier Teflon coatings include airplane bodies, military equipment, and a number of industrial-grade medical apparatuses.

Opting for a Matte Finish

  • As the name suggests, matte Teflon finishes do not offer the same light reflectivity glossy finishes are known for
  • Matte finishes are typically applied on products that will be exposed to higher thermal environments such as ovens or barbeques/grills
