Anti-Stick Coatings for Metal
The superior properties of non-stick fluoropolymer coatings make them popular for an endless variety of industrial uses, from mold release agents to food grade nonstick applications including industrial food processing equipment. Licco specializes in the industrial non-stick coating process and uses two types of non-stick material:
PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), the first of the modern non-stick fluoropolymer coatings, was introduced in 1938 and is still among the world’s most popular nonstick products. Applied in one coat, PTFE offers the highest operating temperature of any fluoropolymer at 500°F.
FEP (fluorinated ethylene polypropylene) has similar properties to PTFE, while offering superior release properties for non-stick applications. With an operating temperature of 450 F, this coating is commonly used as a non-stick coating for molds.

Teflon® industrial coatings spray on like paint and bake to a tough, inert finish. By combining heat resistance with almost total chemical inertness, excellent dielectric stability and a low coefficient of friction, Teflon® industrial coatings offer a balance of properties.
PTFE coatings, or Polytetrafluoroethylene are superior non-stick fluoropolymer coatings with a very durable thin film coating. These products have the highest operating temperature of any fluoropolymer and have an extremely low coefficient of friction, good abrasion resistance and chemical resistance.
Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide smooth non-porous films with excellent abrasion resistance. Because the coating is non-porous its chemical resistance is superb. FEP coatings are extremely non-wetting and have a very low coefficient of friction.
EthyleneTriFluoroEthylene has very similar chemical resistant properties to ECTFE though is thinner and not quite so robust.
