Fluorocarbon Surface Technologies offer a range of high-performance surface coating applications suitable for the Aerospace industry. Our specialist aerospace coatings offer protection and enhancement across a wide range of applications which include general aviation; business, commercial and military aircraft; along with commercial, military and defence helicopters.

To improve the life of components used within the aerospace industry, PTFE and other coatings increase properties such as abrasion and corrosion resistance, helping the components to have extended lifecycles.

Fluorocarbon Surface Technologies are AS9100 approved and have customer approvals including Airbus UK, Rolls Royce and BAe systems.

Working in collaboration with our customers, we can provide application specific coatings and the transfer of knowledge in the application of our company owned F-LON® range.

We offer a wide range of fluoropolymers such as PTFE, PFA, ECTFE and ETFE coatings. These are backed up by our strong partnerships with major suppliers including DuPont (Teflon®), Whitford (Xylan®), Solvay (Halar®), Arkema (Rilsan®) and Thermolon™.
