Not even the stickiest food products and biomaterials adhere well to Teflon®. Surfaces of Teflon® are easy to clean, and they stay cleaner longer. The payoff: faster, easier cleaning and longer intervals between cleanings.
As an alternative to stainless steel, exotic alloys, and many other polymers, Teflon® fluoropolymers deliver more value and performance in food processing uses. Applications include linings for metal vessels, piping, pumps, and valves; pipe, hose, and tubing; components for valves and pumps; and seals and gaskets.
Teflon® is impervious to attack by the fastest-acting and strongest cleaning agents and solvents we've tested.
Many components made with Teflon® can be steam cleaned. For most plastics, that's out of the question.
