Teflon coatings in the Oil and Gas industry - photo of an off-shore oil rig


Recently released Teflon™ products have significantly higher UV protection, adding to the product’s already impressive versatility. One industry benefitting from this improvement is the oil and gas industry. With so many elements of the oil and gas industry exposed to constant sunlight, UV protection is one of the industry’s primary concerns. Now that Teflon™ can protect against extended UV exposure, it can bring its traditional nonstick, anti-galling, and corrosion resistant properties to a critical industry.

Common Teflon™ Coatings

857G (Blue Teflon™) is the most commonly used PTFE coating in the Oil & Gas industry

Ruby Red PFA is popular thanks to its extremely high chemical and corrosion resistance
