Teflon Technical FAQ: Rough Texture

Every day at Intech we receive requests for technical help with DuPont Teflon® industrial coatings.  If you have a technical question, please feel free to call and speak to one of our technical sales representatives.  Once a month, we post a frequently asked question here on our blog. 

Question: My part appears to have a rough texture. What causes this?

Answer: The DuPont™ Teflon® industrial coating should be smooth and have a soft touch to it. This usually happens when the part is under-baked. Use a thermocouple to make sure the part temperature is correct. When the fact sheet refers to the cure time, it is talking about the temperature of the part's substrate NOT the oven temperature. Another issue that could cause under-baking, is your oven is not calibrated properly.
