Special solutions (PTFE)

Sticking to the best concepts.

When it comes to offshore and onshore facilities, protection from the elements is a must. To protect vital functions and structures, KAEFER Energy has a facility in Norway, which specialises in applying protective coating to everything from parts to piping and subsea equipment.

Some call this coating Xylan. You might know it as Teflon®. We call it a solution. Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) coating is very useful in the offshore industry, where many components and structures are under the sea and thus are exposed to a variety of factors that can limit their durability.

That’s because PTFE coating is flexible, temperature tolerant (from -200°C to +260°C) and offers protection from corrosion on the basis of the barrier principle. And, as you know, things don't stick to it either. Which applies as much to environmental elements as it does to the egg you fry for breakfast.

PTFE is one of KAEFER’s special solutions for the offshore and onshore process industry. And proof of how KAEFER innovative thinking can improve the way your facilities run.

Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) is a fluoropolymer coating with excellent corrosion prevention and non-stick properties.
With temperature resistances from -200°C up to +260°C this coating offer versatile applications for industrial demands.
We operate Europe’s largest PTFE processing plant and we can handle individual objects of sizes up to 8m x 2.5m x 2.5m.
