How To Compare Teflon Coating Companies
Different types of coatings can be used on metals and non-metals to create specific surface properties, characteristics, and benefits. The use of Teflon coatings is to provide surface protection to the metal or non-metal part or component as well as to create a non-stick surface.
Teflon coatings will also provide a surface that is resistant to chemicals and abrasion in addition to reducing friction. Different types of Teflon are also important in high-temperature types of application as well as when the surface coating is thicker than the more common PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) Teflon.
Choosing between the various Teflon coating companies in the market is important. Your business deserves to use the company that can offer the Teflon coating that is best suited to your application, and that is applied with an extensive understanding of the process.
Experience and Years in the Industry
Don’t make the assumption that all metal finishing companies are the same. Years in the industry are important as this ensures expertise, experience in creative solutions for customers as well as a high level of customer support. However, it is also important to find out how long the metal finishing company has been working with Teflon.
Always ask any Teflon coating companies under consideration for specifics about experience with the product as well as how long they have been in business. Ask about specific projects they have completed in your industry and follow-up when they provide references.
Capacity and Delivery
It will be necessary to talk to Teflon coating companies to ensure they have the physical capacity to complete your order in the time required. Some companies may only work with small volume orders while others may have minimum order requirements.
It is also critical to ask the company about their record for on-time delivery. If the company has a poor record in having orders completed and shipped in time, even a great price on the coating process may not be worth the savings.
