Low Coefficient of Friction: Friction is a force created when two objects rub together that hinders the motion. The coefficient of friction is generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load, sliding speed, and type of Teflon® coating used. Lubricity is very important in any application that has moving parts touching each other and reapplying oil or grease is not easy. For example, in the automotive and aerospace industries, springs, clamps, and clips are coated with Teflon® coatings to avoid wearing down the part and to reduce squeaking. PTFE has the lowest coefficient of friction.
