Fluoropolymer Coatings

Fluoropolymer Coatings are known for their inertness to most chemicals, resistance to high temperatures, extremely low coefficients of friction and excellent dielectric properties which are relatively insensitive to temperature and power frequency. Fluoropolymers make up a family of thermoplastic resins analogous to polyethylene in which some of the hydrogen atoms attached to the carbon chain are replaced by fluorine or fluorinated alkyl groups. In some cases, other halogens such as chlorine are also part of the molecule.
