PTFE Coatings from SurfTech, When You Need a Low Friction and Lubricous Coating
PTFE coatings, commonly known as Teflon*, have the third-lowest coefficient of friction (as low as 0.02) of any known solid material. This makes it a superior coating for resisting wear and corrosion—even under extreme pressures.
Renown for its lubricous qualities, SurfTech’s PTFE coatings can increase the life of your products by reducing the wear and tear it receives from day-to-day operations. Its slippery surface and low friction make it a top choice where sliding action of parts occur, such as cutting blades, piston skirts, slide plates, gears, plain bearings, and more.
It is tough and strong, yet flexible—able to bend freely and repeatedly without breaking.
PTFE/Teflon coatings adhere well to most metals, plastics, ceramics, and even to itself (most formulations).
