Toefco has been a premier License Industrial Applicator (LIA) for over 50 years, specializing in applying Teflon™ and other high performance functional coating systems.
We Specialize in Teflon™ Coating Systems
By combining heat resistance with almost total chemical inertness, excellent dielectric stability, and a low coefficient of friction, Teflon™ industrial coatings offer a balance of properties unbeatable by any other material. It is the original nonstick finish. Industrial products made with Teflon™ coatings’ fluoropolymer resins have exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion, and stress-cracking.
Teflon™ industrial coatings can be used on carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, steel alloys, brass, and magnesium, as well as on non-metallics such as glass, fiberglass, and plastics.
Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a Teflon™ finish. Although tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily.
Low Coefficient of Friction
The coefficient of friction of Teflon™ is generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load, sliding speed, and particular Teflon™ coating used.
Since surfaces coated with Teflon™ are both oleophobic and hydrophobic, they are not readily wetted. Cleanup is easier and more thorough – in many cases surfaces are self-cleaning.
Teflon™ industrial coating can operate continuously at temperatures up to 260° C/600° F with adequate ventilation.
Many Teflon™ industrial coatings withstand severe temperature extremes without loss of physical properties. Teflon™ industrial coatings may be used at temperatures as low as -270° C/-454° F.
Teflon™ is normally unaffected by chemical environments.
Unique Electrical Properties
Over a wide range of frequencies, Teflon™ has high dielectric strength, low dissipation factor, and very high surface resistively.
