Lectrofluor

Superior chemical and corrosion resistance

Lectrofluor® is a polymer-based coating that prevents severe corrosion and chemical attack to metals in hostile environments. The coating features proprietary blends of engineered polymers and a low coefficient of friction.

Metal parts are first cleaned and prepared in specially designed equipment. The selected polymers are then applied by standard spray methods or electrostatic spraying, depending on the polymers and the part's end use.

Choosing the right polymers

Compatibility with all ferrous and non-ferrous metals other than magnesium.The decision of which polymer to use is based on several factors including:

  • The end-use application of the part
  • Its base metal
  • Hostility of the environment
  • Coating buildup; tolerance requirements

Technical advantages

Lectrofluor provides superior properties compared to other common industry coatings such as fluoropolymers, TFE, PTFE, PFA and FEP. Lectrofluor properties include:

  • Dry lubricity for low coefficient of friction
  • USDA and FDA compliance
  • Prevention from abrasive wear and galling
  • Heat stability
  • Permanent self-lubricating properties for extended wear
  • Mold release properties
  • Operating temperature range: -400°F (-204°C) to 600°F (315°C)
  • Corrosion, radiation and UV resistance
  • Thickness range 0.001 to 0.030 inches
