Teflon ™ is inert to virtually all chemicals and is considered the most slippery material in existence. These properties have made it one of the most valuable and versatile technologies ever invented, contributing to significant advancements in areas such as aerospace, communications, electronics, industrial processes and architecture. These unique properties include:


Teflon NonStick: Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a Teflon ™ coating. While tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily
non wetting Non-Wetting: Since Teflon ™ finishes are both hydrophobic and oleophobic, cleanup is easier and more thorough.
low coefficient Low Coefficient of Friction: The coefficient of friction is generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load, sliding speed, and type of Teflon™ coating used.
chemical-resistance Chemical Resistance: Chemical environments usually do not affect a Teflon™ coating. The only chemicals known to affect these coatings are molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents.
electrical-properties Unique Electrical Properties: Over a wide range of frequencies, Teflon™ industrial coatings have a high dielectric strength, low dissipation factor and high surface resistivity. Certain coatings are electroconductive enough to be used as an antistatic coating.
heat-resistance Heat Resistance & Cryogenic Stability: Teflon™can operate continuously at temperatures up to 550°F and can be used for intermittent service up to 600°F with adequate ventilation.  Many Teflon™ industrial coatings can withstand temperatures as low as -454°F without loss of physical properties.
