Create slippery surface on PP Plastic





March 18, 2010

I would like to know if ther's anyone that could help with information regarding how to create a lasting slippery surface on PP plastic. Application is for outdoors. Have tried applying PA powder with particle size down to 5 my, but it does not withstand rain good enough. Could a teflon coating of some kind be an alternative?

Hi,Torsten. That's pretty vague. Why not make the item out of UHMWPE instead? A solid material will vastly outlast any coating. Good luck.
