    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.



    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.
