The world of lubricants is big. It is therefore relatively difficult to keep track of things, especially when it comes to products with similar properties, as is the case with Teflon spray and silicone spray. We want to educate.
Differences between Teflon spray and silicone spray
Silicone spray is a dry lubricant that is suitable for treating metal, plastic, wood and rubber. Hinges, zippers and shutters run better, sprayed with silicone spray.
Teflon spray has very similar properties to silicone spray. This means that it is a dry lubricant, i.e. fat-free, which is used for lubrication instead of oils and fats, and it is temperature-resistant. Sliding parts move just as well after using Teflon spray as they do after lubricating with silicone spray. In contrast to silicone spray, which is made on the basis of silicone oil, Teflon is a plastic, also called PTFE.
Application of TeflonSpray
TeflonSpray not only has similar properties such as silicone spray, it can also be used in the same areas. In addition to the application as a lubricating and lubricant TeflonSpray also serves as corrosion protection. It encloses the sprayed parts and equals small bumps. Before using TeflonSpray, you should clean the surfaces to be treated so that the spray is liable well.
Have you sprayed the spray, let it dry for a few minutes before the treated parts are moved or touched. Several layers of the spray, which are applied after a drying time, improve the glittering result. Teflon spray adheres very well to smooth and slightly uneven surfaces such as wood, plastic and metal (we know Teflon primarily from the coating of pans and as a sealing tape for water pipes).
Teflon spray is considered to be more hygienic than silicone spray and can therefore be used in the food industry and in vegetable growing (although silicone oil is also used for certain food-related areas).
