Properties of Teflon: Nonstick

DuPont Teflon® industrial coatings are 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. 

Nonstick: Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a DuPont™ Teflon® industrial coating. While tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily. Teflon® coatings’ nonstick properties greatly reduce sliding wear and provide excellent release. Anti-adhesion is especially important in the food processing and plastic molding industries because the molds used in these environments must have excellent release or else a significant amount of material will be left behind in the mold. PTFE, PFA, and FEP have the best nonstick qualities.
