How Fluoropolymer Coating Helps with Electrical Insulation

Posted by Jon Goodwin on Apr 7, 2017 3:15:28 PM

Coating Products Offer Superior Quality and Reliability as Insulators

First, let’s have a quick review of fluoropolymer coatings. You are probably familiar with the most widely known properties of fluoropolymer coatings:

  • Non-stick
  • Low friction
  • Non-wetting
  • Thermal stability
  • Electrical insulation
  • Chemical resistance

You might be aware of the many ways choosing the right coatings can improve outputs and overall product performance. When you use the correct selection and application of a fluoropolymer coating, you can add significant value to your parts.

Sandblasting Unit to Prep for Fluoropolymer Coating Doubles Capacity and Halves Recovery Time

Posted by Jon Goodwin on Aug 26, 2016 12:10:59 PM

American Durafilm® Adds New Vacuum Recovery System

American Durafilm® recently added a new vacuum recovery system that not only doubles the capacity of the sandblaster, but also halves the recovery time while prepping customer parts for fluoropolymer coatings. The new unit will also allow for more accurate grit blasting and will significantly reduce processing time for customer orders during the preparatory phase. With the addition of the new system, we are looking at cutting down lead times, reducing rejects, and decreasing potential damage to surfaces that are to be prepped for fluoropolymer coating.
