Teflon Technical FAQ: Humidity

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: The 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.
