FEP Coating

Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene Coating

FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide smooth non-porous films with excellent abrasion resistance. Because the coating is non-porous its chemical resistance is superb. FEP coatings are extremely non-wetting and have a very low coefficient of friction. This coating has excellent release properties and is often used as a mold release coating. This coating is typically applied to a thickness of 1-2 mils. Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene Coatings also meet many industry standards including ASTM. 

Food Safe Coatings for Metal

The FEP coating process is great for the food processing industry because of its high degree of chemical, abrasion and crack stress resistance. Our FEP coatings have a melting temperature of 450°F to allow easier melting and and flowing in coating applications.
