American Durafilm offers a wide range of fluoropolymer coatings that are both hydrophobic and oleophobic. When properly applied and cured, these coatings exhibit an extremely low surface energy, which allows liquid to bead up and run off their surface. These coatings have temperature tolerances as high as 500F, and many offer FDA compliance as an added benefit. Whether in an industrial setting, a lab, or in the kitchen, we can offer a coating solution that will allow for easy clean-up of almost any liquid you use.
American Durafilm can apply coating to various metal substrates, ceramics, and glass that will allow it to slide over another surface with ease. Serving as a fully cured dry film lubricant, there is an incredible array of fully fluorinated coatings that can be applied alone or in combination to reduce a surface’s coefficient of friction to as low as 0.04 (both static & kinetic) depending on the circumstances. These types of reductons can eliminate the need for liquid and oil lubricants in many applications. As well as reduced friction to prevent seizing, galling, heat, etc…, these coatings can be tailored to also have increased abrasion resistance, good dielectric strength, and/or chemical resistance. There are also several FDA compliant varieties that can be sprayed where food contact is a concern.
