Teflon™

We are proud to announce that Thermaspray is the only certified distributor and applicator of the Chemours Teflon™ Coatings in Southern Africa. Teflon™ is Chemour’s registered trademark for their brand of fluoropolymer resins. The Teflon™ brand name is licensed by Chemours in association with approved applicators.

 

Teflon™ Industrial Bakeware Coatings

Since the early 1960s, Teflon™ nonstick coatings have been used on cookware and bakeware. Although bakeries know the Teflon™ trademark for its nonstick properties in bakeware applications, not all nonstick-coated bakeware is made with Chemours™ Teflon™ nonstick coatings.

Chemours nonstick coatings for bakeware are based on food grade PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) and/or PFA (perfluoroalkoxy), which are FDA-compliant and free of the harmful chemical PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic).

 

Benefits of Teflon™ Coatings:

  • Reduce costs: bakeware can be used longer, and bakeries can eliminate secondary release agents such as oil, silicone mats, etc.
  • Decrease cleaning time: maintenance and cleaning is minimised.
  • Increase productivity: increase production volumes and reduce waste from sticking.
  • Improve product quality: ensure product consistency with improved dough flow and release.
  • Increase safety & cleanliness: a safer environment, reduced fire hazards due to elimination of oils and grease.
  • Enhance sustainability: limit environmental impact by reducing scrap levels, reducing consumption of oils and prolonging the life of your pans.
  • Chemours Teflon™ quality assurance.
  • Low co-efficient of friction: generally a range of 0.05-0.20.
  • Non-wetting: Teflon™ is hydrophobic and oleophobic.
  • Can operate continuously at temperatures up to 260°C.
  • High dielectric strength, low dissipation factor, high surface resistivity, anti-static properties.
  • Extremely high chemical resistance.

Teflon™ will fundamentally change your baking experience - increasing your baking cycles from 5 cycles for oils, 500 cycles with silicones, up to 5000 cycles with a Teflon™ coating.

Based on the quality of the baking pan, your bakeware can be recycled and recoated, extending the life of your bakeware even further.

Teflon™ Industrial Coatings

Teflon™ industrial coatings can be used on carbon steel, aluminium, stainless steel, steel alloys, brass, and magnesium, as well as non-metallics such as glass, fiberglass, some rubber and plastics.

Teflon™ Industrial Coatings Portfolio:

  • Teflon™ PTFE: (polytetrafluoroethylene) nonstick coatings have the highest operating temperature of any fluoroplastic (260°C), an extremely low coefficient of friction, good abrasion resistance and good chemical resistance.
  • Teflon™ FEP: (fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer) provides excellent chemical resistance. In addition to low friction, FEP coatings have excellent nonstick properties and the maximum use temperature is 204°C.
  • Teflon™ PFA: (perfluoroalkoxy) nonstick coatings offer the additional benefits of higher continuous-use temperature (260°C/500°F), film thicknesses up to 1,000 micrometers (40 mils) and greater toughness than PTFE or FEP.
  • Tefzel™ ETFE: is a copolymer of ethylene and tetrafluoroethylene. ETFE has excellent chemical resistance and can operate continuously at 149°. This resin is the toughest of the fluoroplastics and can be applied at film thicknesses up to 1,000 micrometers (40 mils) to provide a highly durable finish.
  • Teflon™ One Coat: solvent-based liquid coatings are formulated with special blends of fluoroplastics and other high-performance resins to improve toughness and abrasion resistance. The resins provide adhesion and abrasion resistance as well low friction and nonstick characteristics.
  • Teflon™ Dry Lubricant: special versions of Teflon™ technology designed to provide lubrication under high-pressure/velocity (PV) conditions. These products are solvent-based, and are usually cured between 260°C and 371°C.
