Fluoropolymer Coatings

What are Fluoropolymer Coatings?

Fluoropolymer coatings are blends of high performance resins and fluoropolymer lubricants. These coatings are a superior dry film lubricant that produce a smooth, hard, slick coating and provide excellent corrosion and chemical resistance. Other benefits of fluoropolymer coatings include reduced friction, resistance to galling, non stick, non wetting, electrical resistance and abrasion resistance. Fluoropolymer coating applications are extensive; the coatings are applied to fasteners and various OEM components to provide a longer life before replacement.
