Initially, all industries that were involved with Teflon and PTFE coatings were not products that consumers directly wanted. Rather Teflon or PTFE was used in other sectors like the racing, automotive, medical and printing industries and so on. However, once the first non-stick frying pan was introduced in the 1940s that is when Teflon products started to become available too and the later became highly demanded by the consumers.
After this shift in trends, there were a lot of Teflon or PTFE industrial coatings for consumer products. If you look around you, you will notice that you own a bunch of PTFE products as well. This includes your non-stick cookware, your baking trays, and your iron and so on. So, the demand for industrial coated PTFE products has been on the rise ever since with no signs of stopping anytime soon. Huge suppliers and companies rely on the industrial side to provide them the best PTFE coated products that will display all the properties of PTFE, and will also do the job too. So, those on the industrial side of the process want to make sure that their PTFE coatings are efficient and accurate. In fact, some suppliers now want their Teflon coating to be anti-microbial as well, so that is another factor to keep in mind if you are part of the industrial coating process.
Given how important the industrial coating process is, you want to make sure that all the requirements are met in your Teflon products so that you are able to impress sellers, purchasing agents, and to any wary customers as well. There is plenty of competition, and customers are not afraid to pass up on buying a product when they know they can buy another one that meets all of their criteria.
