Apticote Polymer Coatings
Polymer coatings are applied to engineering parts and consumer products to confer non-stick, low friction, corrosion protection, wear resistance or combinations of those attributes. The polymers are sprayed, either with a wet carrier or as a dry, electrostatic powder. The range of materials is vast, extending to paints and elastomeric coatings, but those of interest tribologically are mostly fluorocarbons, that is PTFE, FEP and PFA.
The Apticote 200 range of unique polymer coatings comprises high technology polymer-based formulations offering outstanding non-stick, mould release, low friction and low wear properties. They also provide superior chemical corrosion protection, even in the most hostile environments. And with full FDA approval (more accurately, now quoted as ‘FDA compliance’), they are particularly suited for applications in the food and medical sectors.
Apticote 810 is the next generation of non-stick coatings, tougher, harder and with better release properties than conventional polymer coatings, and with a formulation that we tailor to the needs of your particular application.
Apticote 810 combines the Poeton thermal spraying and polymer technologies in a unique formulation, a process that solves the universal problem – ‘How do you get a non-stick coating to bond to the substrate?’
