While most people associate Teflon coating with nonstick cookware, this amazing plastic actually has a wide range of industrial uses. In the manufacturing world, it's used for a variety of things including cabling materials, pharmaceutical applications and pipes and valves. And in the automotive industry, it's used on wheels and other parts to protect them from road debris and other harsh environments.

Industrial Teflon coating services can be applied to a number of different surfaces, and the specifics of what you need will dictate which type is best for your application. Generally, the surface of the item that you're coating needs to be roughed up a bit to help the coating adhere to it. However, there are exceptions to this rule within the PTFE family of coatings.

PTFE, or polytetrafluoroethylene, can handle heat up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and it has low friction properties and resists acidic and alkaline chemicals and abrasions. It's available in a liquid, water based form as well as in powder. PFA, or perfluoroalkoxy, is a stronger option that can handle even higher temperatures, and it can also withstand abrasions better than PTFE. It's available in a solvent-based form as well as in powder.

All of these options can be applied to aluminum, steel and steel alloys, aluminum, stainless steel, brass and glass, as well as some rubber and plastic. And, when properly applied by an approved applicator, these coatings can last a long time and add value that goes far beyond the basic nonstick qualities of Teflon.
