Fluoropolymer coatings are a blend of resins and fluoropolymer lubricants. PTFE, PVDF, PFA, and FEP provide low friction, chemical and corrosion resistance, non wetting, and release or non stick properties at temperatures up to 550F. ACT is a Whitford Corporation "Recommended Coater".
Problems we frequently address include:
Threaded fasteners - to prevent corrosion, seizing, galling
Vacuum and thermo-form molds - to provide release
Surfaces in contact with inks and lubes - for easy clean up and change over
Heat seal bars - to provide release
Sliding and mating surfaces - to provide dry film lubricity
Hot melt adhesive pots and chutes - for easy clean up and change over
Components exposed to highly corrosive conditions

Ceramic metallic (cermet) coatings provide corrosion protection at temperatures up to 1200°F while retaining overall appearance. We have thirty years of experience applying cermet coating systems and work closely with Praxair Surface Technologies, an innovator of high performance coatings, to optimize our production scale application their SermeTel® coating systems. ACT is a Praxair Surface Technologies "Preferred Applicator" of SermeTel coatings.

Nylon offers wear resistance, dry film lubricity, noise dampening, a warm touch, and excellent machinabilty. Some projects have us coating a part allover with a secondary machining operation removing the nylon from surfaces that can't tolerate the thickness of the coating.
We apply nylon by electrostatic spray or fluid bed depending on desired coating thickness and part configuration.
Functional grades of powder coating include zinc rich primer for corrosion resistance, epoxy for electrical insulation (dielectric strength can be as much as 1,000 volts per mil), and specialty powders for high temperature requirements.
Please contact us to determine if our coating and process meets your UL, FDA, USDA, NSF, AWWA, MIL SPEC, or OEM requirements.
