With the rapid advance of science there have been many added demands on processing requirements for manufacturers.

Within this specialist area of technology PTFE and Fluoropolymer coatings play an important role and are having a big impact on the performance of products. More and more these coatings are the preferred solution for extended levels of performance and enhanced product quality in demanding scientific applications.

Many of today’s pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers need to be flexible to produce multiple products while meeting the growing needs for product purity, cleanability, durability and lower maintenance costs.

Here at AFT Fluorotec Coatings our range of coatings with their unique properties are helping engineers to provide solutions to many of these problems.

What our clients say...
"Our main reasons for choosing AFT Fluorotec are their excellent delivery and service, they are always responsive to specific requests and expediting our orders where necessary. Their work is consistently high quality with a very low rejection rate. They have a high level of technical know how and are always happy to work alongside our design team in the development of new parts."

 

THE BENEFITS OF PTFE OR Fluoropolymer COATINGS

  • Chemical protection
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Wear resistance
  • Heat resistance
  • Cryogenic temperature
  • Permeation resistance
  • Hydrophobic (Non-wetting)
  • Oleophobic (Oil Shedding)
  • Electrical insulation/conductive
  • Non-stick/release
  • Easy clean

PTFE, PFA, FEP, PEEK, ETFE, ECTFE are all polymers used for scientific applications and are non-reactive giving no corrosion by-products or extractable that may contaminate scientific processes.

Our coatings can be applied to most solid materials including almost all metals, glass, ceramics, many plastics, rubbers and elastomers.

In many cases by using our coatings this can help prevent designers specifying very expensive alloys such as Hastelloy or Inconel.  Our expertise enables us to work closely with customers to help them provide safer, more reliable, cleaner, greener, improved yields and productivity.
