Teflon® Coatings Brochure Describes Formulations and Application Methods

A new brochure that provides an overview of typical products coated by this firm, describes formulations, coating methods, and provides examples of coated medical-grade wire, forming mandrels, and hypotubes is being offered by Applied Plastics Co, Inc. of Norwood, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

The Coatings Brochure from Applied Plastics, one of the original licensed industrial applicators of Chemours Teflon® finishes in the country, describes these coatings and other finishes such as Emralon® and Xylan® applied using several methods including: electrostatic powder spraying, electrostatic fluidized bed, conventional spraying, and spool-to-spool techniques.

Featured in the 8-page Coatings Brochure are PTFE Natural™ Fluorpolymer coated medical-grade wire and forming mandrels, PTFE Fluorpolymer coated hypotubes, their multi-laminate stacking, bonding and coating service, and electrostatic powder coating capabilities.  Descriptions, key features and specifications for each product and service category are included.

Superior medical devices require superior coatings.

Our proprietary PTFE Natural® coated mandrels offer unmatched benefits.


Low Coefficient of Friction

PTFE Natural® coatings provide a coefficient of friction generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load and sliding speed.



PTFE Natural® coatings can operate continuously at temperatures up to 550°F and can be used for intermittent service up to 600°F with adequate ventilation.



Non-Stick Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a PTFE Natural® coating. While tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily.



Chemical environments usually do not affect a PTFE Natural® coating. Only molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents are known to affect this coating.



The proprietary PTFE Natural™ coating process enhances the substrate bonding surface to provide optimum lubricity without flaking or cracking.



Since PTFE Natural® finishes are both hydrophobic and oleophobic, cleanup is easier and more thorough.
