DuPont™ Teflon® Coating Spotlight: Dry Film Lubricants

One coat, solvent-based PTFE coatings for dry lubrication that require tough, durable performance.

Product Overview
PTFE one coats are superior dry film lubricants with a smooth and slick finish fusing to substrates with strong adhesion to provide great durability.  These coatings are excellent for minimizing friction and galling, as well as prevent seizing, especially where re-lubrication with fluid is inaccessible or there is exposure to dirt and dust.  In addition to providing lubrication, fluoropolymers used as dry film lubricants provide ancillary benefits of resistance to heat and cold, chemical and corrosion resistance, and release.  Flexible cure temperatures of this product line make it more accessible to a broader range of coaters and end uses.
