Abstract

The cure time of pigment-filled or clear tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) systems, such as TEFLON* solutions, is determined by submerging a small sample of articles coated with TFE in an indicator dye solution, rinsing the articles, and then subjecting the articles to a cure process, while observing the diminishing or changing dye color of the articles as the coating cures.
