The vast variety of industrial coatings products in the market these days can be confusing to ordinary users, but expert painting contractors maintain a database of their “favorite” coatings, suitable for any particular coatings project. Based on long experience and a deep knowledge of the characteristics, components and applicability of industrial coatings, experts can pinpoint with a high degree of accuracy what products are appropriate for any specific coatings project.
Coating specialists generally maintain a selection of the choicest non-stick industrial coatings. Non-stick coatings have the unique ability to effectively prevent solid substances or materials from adhering to the coated surface.
Non-stick coatings often vary in their adhesion capabilities, with some industrial coatings products going as far as to adhere strongly and be a permanent part of the surface substrate through arc-spraying. Such non-stick coatings are low-friction, non-wetting, and have been transformed electrically, resulting in improved temperature and chemical resistance, thereby guaranteeing long-term endurance against damages.
PTFE (polytetrafluoro ethylene) coatings are preferred by experts because of their superior performance at high temperatures — the highest for flouropolymers. FEP (fluorinated ethylene-propylene) industrial coatings, on the other hand, have the capabilities of PFTE coatings plus the ability for melt-processing, which is an important coating requirement in chemical processing industries. FEPs achieve chemical inertness and is resistant to heat and the weather, making it a robust and reliable product to use.
