The Teflon Licensed Industrial Applicator (LIA) Program is a global network of companies with extensive knowledge and experience in recommending and applying Teflon industrial coatings and who are known for the quality of their workmanship. For over 50 years, the LIA program has been a differentiator in the coating marketplace and remains the mark of a quality coater.
You can rely on the decades of experience of LIA’s to endure that the correct Teflon coating is applied according to Chemours specifications.
LIA’s have a wide array of equipment to apply liquid and powder Teflon coatings to a variety of parts.
LIA’s display the highest level of quality control throughout the netire coating process. With inspection of incoming parts, control of coating thickness, proper cure, and final testing, LIA’s consistently keep quality a top priority.
Feel confident that the right coating is being applied in the right way to yout part.
LIA’s are kept abreast of new technologies and techniques from Chemours and maintain a full inventory of Teflon products.
LIAs apply a variety of water-based liquid coatings including PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene) a non-stick primer/topcoat system, FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene copolymer) a low-friction, chemically-resistant coating, and PFA (PerFluoroAlkoxy) which has provides thicker, tougher coating..
LIAs also apply a variety of Teflon coatings in powder form including FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene copolymer), PFA (PerFluoroAlkoxy), and ETFE which is a copolymer of Ethylene and TetraFluoroEthylene.
Surface preparation is vital to ensure a high quality coating and optimal lifespan of coatings. Our state-of-the-art sand blasting ensures that optimal surface preparation is achieved to suit every coating solution.
Abrasive blast cleaning is an optimal way to prepare and prime surfaces prior to coating. Grit blasting helps to remove contaminants and ensure coating solutions adhere correctly.
