South African based company

Manufacturers of PTFE Products in South Africa, and supplying the Local market and the entire African Continent.

PTFE Extruded Rod

PTFE Extruded Rod is now manufactured here at CIP

PTFE Rod is known as having the lowest co-efficient of friction of any solid material and is extremely effective operating at extremely high and low temperatures.

What is PTFE?

PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) fluorocarbon resins represent one of the most versatile products lines ever to emerge from Du Pont laboratories. From Exotic space-age applications to molded parts and wire and cable insulation to its consumer use as a coating for cookware, PTFE has fulfilled a wide variety of roles in its 40-year history.

XYLAN® P.T.F.E. coatings

Xylan® is a family of Flouropolymer coatings designed for use on various types of OEM components and fasteners. Most Xylan® coatings contain PTFE or other types of lubricants and are applied in thin films. Xylan® coatings provide lubrication and controlled friction, wear resistance, heat resistance, nonstick and release properties and, at the same time, can also protect from corrosion. Xylan® coatings solve the problems created when the ideal material for use in engineering construction has the wrong surface properties.

Parts made from materials with the optimum strength, weight and cost may corrode, seize or gall. Xylan® coatings provide a working surface, tailored to the application. Xylan can be used as a coating on steel, aluminum, copper, castings, exotics, wood, paper, thermoplastics or fabrics.     

HALAR® - E.C.T.F.E. Coatings

HALAR® ECTFE is a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer offering a unique combination of mechanical properties, permeation resistance, thermal and chemical resistance, and versatility. HALAR® ECTFE is a melt processable Flouropolymer manufactured by Solvay Solexis. Its unique combination of properties is credited to its chemical structure, a 1:1 alternating copolymer of ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethylene. Halar® ECTFE coatings provide outstanding chemical resistance.

It is resistant to strong mineral and oxidizing acids, alkalis, metal etchants, liquid oxygen, and essentially all organic solvents except hot amines. HALAR® ECTFE coatings provide good electrical properties, a broad use temperature range from cryogenic to 150°C. Halar can withstand vertical flame tests in thicknesses as low as 0.18mm. It is a tough material with excellent impact strength.  These characteristics have made HALAR® the material of choice for many applications across multiple industries. It has been widely utilized in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and microelectronics industries for chemical resistance.  

TEFLON® E.T.F.E. Coating

Teflon® ETFE Coatings are unique industrial nonstick systems with properties unmatched by any other engineering material. Teflon® ETFE Coatings are applied in the form of powder up to a thickness of 2mm and sintered at 400°C in order to cure properly. The high technology performance of Teflon® ETFE can be used to cut production costs and increase productivity in a wide range of situations. Teflon® ETFE is generally considered to have a no-load continuous use temperature of 150°C. However, in certain specific applications, it can have an upper service temperature in excess of 200°C.

Hyflon® PFA & MFA® Coatings

Hyflon offers the highest temperature rating and broadest chemical resistance of all melt processable fluoropolymers, making them an ideal choice for extreme thermal and chemical environments. Hyflon MFA® has better chemical resistance and thermo-mechanical properties than FEP. Both PFA and MFA® are well-suited for use in wire and cable, semiconductors and chemical processing industries.

Sigma PPG Marine and protective Coatings

Aggressive environments demand long-lasting and highly resilient systems. The innovative SIGMADUR durable finish range answers this need with a proven track record in protecting
Onshore and offshore structures throughout their lifetime. SIGMADUR atmosphere, abrasion and corrosion resistant finish coatings cure down to –5°C and have been specially formulated to provide ultimate performance, durability, and colour and gloss retention.

Innovative technology ensures that these coatings look good and offer excellent protection to the splash and spillage of mineral and vegetable oils, paraffin’s, aliphatic petroleum products and mild chemicals. The SIGMADUR range is widely used and respected in all key industry sectors, meeting the extreme challenges required to protect major assets throughout the world, such as Coastal inland structures, Process equipment, Refineries, Storage facilities, Steel Structures, Pipelines, Port and harbor, Power plants structures, Steel and concrete tanks.

ChemLine® Chemical resistant Coatings

ChemLine® is a coating with superior chemical resistance and high temperature resistance. ChemLine® is a high functionality, two component thermoset polymer coating. When cured, the ChemLine® high cross-link density is unlike other coatings. ChemLine® delivers significantly improved product performance and anti-corrosion resistance. ChemLine® coating is formulated with a unique polymer designed and engineered with high functionality. This bridged aromatic backbone structure, when polymerized, forms up to 784 cross-links.

ChemLine® cross-links predominately through an ether (carbon-oxygen-carbon) linkage. This eliminates high concentrations of hydroxyl groups (found in epoxies) and precludes formation of ester groups (found in vinylesters) which are subject to hydrolysis and acid attack. ChemLine® can be ambient cured or low temperature forced air cured depending on substrate and service conditions.*

ChemLine® Higher Cross-Link Density Means:

  • Higher chemical resistance
  • Higher toughness
  • Higher heat resistance
  • Higher resistance to abrasion


Provides Superior Chemical Resistance to:

  • 98% Sulfuric Acid
  • 37% Hydrochloric Acid
  • 50% Sodium Hydroxide
  • Most acids, alkalies, and solvents
  • Methanol
  • Methylene Chloride
  • Acetic Acid


Industrial Use for our products:

  • Chemical Processing - Tanks, vessels, hazardous waste, secondary containment, chemical plant floors, etc.
  • Paper & Pulp - Digesters, black liquor tanks, bleaching, etc.
  • Mining - Acid tanks, scrubbers, etc.
  • High Technology - Clean rooms, floors, etc.
  • Power Generation - FGD systems, ducts and stacks, etc.
  • Steel - Pickling tanks, acid storage, acid waste neutralization,
  • Waste Water - Tanks, clarifiers, flocculation basins, neutralization chambers, concrete containment, etc.
