Non-Stick Coatings

The superior properties of non-stick fluoropolymer coatings make them popular for an endless variety of industrial uses, from mold release applications to food grade nonstick applications and beyond. Metal Coatings Corp. specializes in the use of two types of non-stick material:

PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), the first of the modern fluoropolymer coatings, was introduced in 1938 and is still among the world’s most popular nonstick products. Applied using a two-coat (primer/topcoat) system, PTFE offers the highest operating temperature of any fluoropolymer at 600°F.

FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) has similar properties to PTFE, while offering a lower melting temperature (450°F) that allows easier melting and flowing in coating applications. Its excellent release properties and abrasion resistance make FEP a popular mold release coating.

Non-stick industrial coatings offer a set of attractive physical and electrical properties:

  • Low coefficient of friction- in the range of 0.05 to 0.20
  • Nonwetting- oleophobic and hydrophobic surfaces make cleanup easier
  • Heat resistance- up to 600° F with adequate ventilation.
  • Unique electrical properties- high dielectric strength, low dissipation factor and very high surface resistivity.
  • Cryogenic stability- usable at temperatures as low as -270° C / -454° F
  • Chemical resistance- resistant to virtually all chemicals except molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents.

Metal Coatings Corp. offers decades of non-stick coating expertise, plus the advantage of a 80,000 square foot facility staffed around the clock with coating industry professionals ready to handle rush projects.
