DuPont™ Teflon® Primers are an effective way to prepare a surface before coating is applied. Primers ensure proper adhesion, increase durability, and give additional protection to the substrate. With the use of our primers, the coating is given a smooth surface to bind to, which creates a more protective layer. This additional layer decreases porosity of the coating to the substrate. There are a number of excellent primers designed to provide substrate and intercoat adhesion for Teflon® topcoats. The water and solvent based products allow for processing flexibility for your specific project. It is important to remember that an FDA-conforming primer must be used in conjunction with FDA-conforming topcoats to have a complete FDA-conforming coating system.

humid weather is causing staining and pops in my DuPont™ Teflon® industrial coating. How do I fix this?
Answer:Conditions can be more challenging depending upon the region in which you do business and whether you coat with solvent or water-based Teflon® coatings.Preheat parts and coat the parts while still warm
to avoid water entrapment. Try selecting better times during the day to coat if
possible (early morning or evenings), ramp up your moisture control in your
shop or spray room, and avoid letting coated parts sit out for extended periods
of time after being coated.
5000 Series half facepiece respirator has a simple and convenient design with
minimal training required. The respirator comes pre-assembled with permanently
attached cartridges for gas and vapor protection. You can easily add 3M
particulate filters for added air-borne particulate protection. The facepiece is
made from soft, lightweight thermoplastic elastomer. 5000 Series half facepiece
respirators are ideally suited for intermittent respirator use and dirty applications
where respirators wear out or become difficult to clean.
6000 Series half and full facepiece respirators can be disassembled, cleaned,
and reused, making them very cost efficient for environments that require
long-term respirator use. The facepiece is lightweight and comfortable, made
from thermoplastic elastomer, and it is very easy to adjust the head straps.
Replacement parts can be replaced without difficulty, and cartridges and
filters can be thrown away when they are used to capacity.
The Ultimate Reusable Respirator for Comfort
Like the 6000 Series, 3M™ 7000 Series half and full facepiece respirators
can be disassembled, cleaned, and reused with new cartridges and filters when
necessary. The difference between the two series is that the 7000 Series
includes a 3M™
Cool Flow™ Exhalation Valve, which makes breathing easier
and reduces heat and moisture buildup inside the facepiece. Also, 7000 Series
respirators are more comfortable for long-term wear because of their new Soft
Seal Design. The full facepiece offers a double flange face seal and six
adjustable straps to make sure it stays in place as long as you need it to.

Choosing a respirator that fits your shop's needs is very important because not all respirators are the same. You must make a decision between disposable or reusable respirators, and make sure that the respirator is equipped with the correct cartridge or filter for the respiratory hazards in the work environment.

DuPont™ Teflon® industrial coatingsare highly durable and long lasting performance coatings that have a distinct application process and qualities that offer solutions in a variety of industrial markets. This series of blogs will highlight one of these inherent properties of Teflon® coatings and how these properties can solve a variety of problems.
Teflon® industrial coatings can operate continuously at temperatures up to 500°F
and can be used up to 550°F intermittently with adequate ventilation. The
thermal stability of the coatings means that they can be used in high heat
environments without losing or affecting any other properties. High temperature
resistance is a significant concern in the food industry because food is
processed at a very high temperature. PTFE and PFA have the highest in-use temperatures, but it is not
recommended to push the coatings past their maximum temperatures because they
will degrade and break down.

My friend is a magician.
It’s a Saturday after Thanksgiving with two days to
recoup behind us. By now everybody’s pretty much turkey’d out. But this day is not about prep work, place settings, and
No, today is all about cracking that two-day food induced
cocoon wide open, its about getting back on your horse, and taking a big bold
swing at this year’s fourth night of the Thanksgiving Holiday. A long, holiday weekend Saturday night can be a beautiful
thing, but you have to work at making it happen.So in Famiglia mia, for this night we gather
the troops.We cast the sien for the
stout of heart. We man the phones.
And here’s the pitch:
“Why don’t you bring your tribe over here tonight?My son is building a fire outside in the
pit as we speak.We have plenty Thanksgiving
stock wine and beer, and plenty of coats and sweat shirts for you after
the sun goes down.My bride is
“repurposing” the last of the leftovers for appetizers.
Should my prospect waiver with my pitch as delivered; I
go directly to the close:
I say, “Giocchino Pane is coming over,”. . . (and here I
pause for effect) . . . then I say, “he’s bringing his Thanksgiving sausage.”
When I play the Giocchino card and I my close rate is a 100%.
On this night years ago my friend Giocchino Pane
rolled into the yard with a pile of tin foil
envelopes full of sausage, onions and peppers.
Deftly, without introduction or oration he waded through all of us seated
around the fire and placed the envelopes, positioning each for maximum heat
– minimal flame. When ready, we produced a big white deep-dish
porcelain-serving tray where he displayed with a flourish each silver packet’s steaming
Today, Giocchino’s Thanksgiving Saturday sausage is as much
a family tradition as my Gramom’s Christmas ravioli, as much as my Cari Marie’s
Thanksgiving ciabatta and pancetta stuffing. Goes to show ya . . . there’s magic in every meal.
