Teflon® coatings are formulated with special blends of fluoropolymers and other high performance resins to improve toughness and abrasion resistance. Because the film components stratify during baking, most of the fluoropolymer properties, such as low friction and nonstick are retained. The resins provide adhesion and abrasion resistance. Various resins are used to enable the lubricant to bind to the part being coated. These coatings are formulated primarily for chemical and corrosion resistance, friction control, and lubricity for fasteners and OEM components. Teflon coatings are applied as a single-coat, thin film, non-stick finish.
