Polymeric coatings are now widely used for their corrosion resistance, low friction coefficient against many materials, decorative properties but also, when doped with ceramic particles, their protection against slipping and their good erosion resistance. Compared to traditional means of deposition, flame spraying in controlled atmosphere extends the scope of their applications either for shapes that can be coated or for site deposition. The materials chosen for spraying were Rislan, Gotalene and Tefzel. In this paper are presented the flame spraying technique which was used and the parameters controlling particles melting as well as, the substrates on which coatings were achieved (metals, woods, concretes, ceramics...) and their preparation. A few applications are then described with for example coatings reinforced by ceramic particles against slipping in wet or greasy area.
