Kindly advice if ther is any process or we should use different grade of coating material. At present I have water/solvent base material for coating on Aluminium & s.s.

Non modified PTFE coatings require a high temperature cure around 400 degrees C. Copper will form an oxide at these temperatures and the coating will delaminate. The copper must be isolated from oxygen at the high temperatures. There are several ways this can be done one of which is a thin plating of nickel onto the copper prior to a PTFE applied coating.
