Protect your vehicle’s complex components from all weather conditions
Today’s vehicles are more complicated than they’ve ever been, utilizing advanced electronic components that are vital for safety, navigation, comfort, and performance. From internally placed electronics systems to standard front and rear lights and power windows — these car components require ample protection from contaminants and moisture to avoid overheating and damage.
At LTI Atlanta, we use industry-leading PTFE-based automotive vents to protect vehicle components from condensation and moisture, allow even and effective heat dissipation, and maintain ample air flow between parts. Our high-grade vents provide top-shelf hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings that keep contaminants and moisture away, ensuring that your car’s computer system, electronics, and other sensitive components are protected from all types of weather and driving conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions
PTFE stands for polytetrafluoroethylene, a synthetic polymer known for its hydrophobic and lubricating properties. The best-known PTFE-based composition brand is Teflon, a popular cookware brand known for its non-stick pots and pans.
It is commonly used as a coating on many vehicle components because it immediately disperses oil and water, and can be used as a lubricant to reduce friction, wear, and energy consumption of machinery. PTFE also facilitates rapid heat dissipation and temperature management, which makes it great for components that require certain heat windows to operate at peak performance. PTFE-coated components are less prone to premature failure and more capable of surviving harsh environments and drastic temperature and pressure changes than non-treated components.
PTFE is commonly applied on connector assemblies, cables, printed circuit boards, bearings, gears, stress seals, enclosure seals, plates, gaskets, bushings, carbon fiber composites, hose assemblies, expansion joints, valves, powertrain components, electronic pumps, and more.
The answer depends on the scale and complexity of the specific project. Projects can be as short as a few days to a week for coating jobs on bodywork and easy-to-access components. Jobs that require disassembly and reassembly tend to have significantly longer turnaround times.
