Fluoropolymer / PTFE




I am working with a stud bolt manufacturer and now we are using Xylan brand as our Fluoropolymer coating. My question is would anyone recommend to me another fluoropolymer coating brand which is comparable to Xylan. Also can we say that PTFE is the same as Fluoropolymer or the same as Fluorocarbon ?

PTFE is one of many possible fluoropolymers. They are not synonymous as fluoropolymer is a family of compounds and PTFE is a specific fluoropolymer. Fluorocarbons are a much larger family of compounds and is very non-specific. In comparison to the product that you mentioned, you might try to find out about DuPont's Teflon coatings (Teflon is DuPont's registered name for PTFE).
