Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP)

Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide smooth non-porous films with excellent abrasion resistance. The coating is non-porous and its chemical resistance is superb. FEP coatings are extremely non-wetting and have a very low coefficient of friction. This coating has excellent release properties and is often used as a mold release coating. This coating is typically applied to a thickness of 1-2 mils.

Food Safe Coatings for Metal

FEP coatings are often used in the food processing industry because of its high degree of chemical, abrasion and crack stress resistance. Our FEP coatings have a melting temperature of 450°F to allow easier melting and and flowing in coating applications.
