Actually Urathane 2-part coating over the graphite.
Some pretty interesting questions ... I actually called our paint supplier who makes paint for all the "Big automotive guys" and they said it is actually possible to add the PTFE to urathane but they don't know what the long term durability would be. Could be interesting though if you could make a "slick coating" where you could just easily wipe down the bike a few days after the race or have the mud just fall off your bike during the race.
We now have a super light weight coating we have been playing with for a few months that only adds about 10 grams to an entire frame. Cool stuff !!! But, the downside is that it isn't as durable as a automotive Urathane clear coat finish.
Thanks, thats what i thought. I have seen raw road frames which makes more sense.
I assume its an epoxy overcoat as opposed to a pre-layup gel coat?
Also, in theory could carbon fibre be clearcoated with PTFE in the epoxy clearcoat? I believe its been used in decorating paints and impregnation for anodizing. Just wondering if it would stick?
