Acronym used to identify Polyvinylidene fluoride, a fluoropolymer with thermoplastic and inert characteristics. Its use is intended for purity conditions, strength and chemical resistance. It is easy to mould because its melting point is quite low: 177 ° C.
This is a Latin prefix from the word “nanus” meaning a billionth part of something. Related to it there is Nanotechnology, which is applied to fields such as physics, chemistry and biology. Nanoparticles can be added to certain nonstick coatings to highlight a characteristic of the coating, such as the specific resistance to a specific […]
Silicone coatings show high non-stick and flexibility properties, and are also resistant to high temperatures. There are two types: those vulcanising at high temperatures and those vulcanising at room temperature. They also present sealing and insulating properties.
A fluorinated material is a chemical compound or polymer with fluorine radicals.
Thermoplastics are Plastic resins that softens when reheated
Coating for an electrical installation made up of a non-conductive material such as Teflon. Teflon coating is resistant to current flow. An electrical insulator prevents different conductive parts to enter in contact and protects people from high voltage.
Polypropylene, also known as PP, is a thermoplastic polymer obtained from the polymerization of propylene. Its main properties are: high chemical resistance to certain solvents, melting point is higher than the one in the propylene and a very low surface tension. Polypropylene applies to food packaging, non-stick coatings not subject to high temperatures, fabrics, laboratory […]
Polyamides are a type of polymers that can be found in nature or artificially created like Nylon®. They are used mainly in the textile industry. Some of the metallic pieces used in their manufacture are usually treated with anti-stick products to facilitate the performance of these manufacturing processes.
Pinholes or tiny pores on a coating that allow potential exposure or leak path in the coating to the substrate.
Teflon paint is a kind of non stick coating that is applied on cookware such as pots or pans. Teflon paint is composed of polytetrafluoroethylene with non-stick properties. Consequently, the use of grease – such as oil or butter – is minimal, which allows a healthier diet.
