New Coating Increases Cleanability and Durability of Aluminum Parts
Tufram® 641 is a new coating developed by General Magnaplate to increase the cleanability of aluminum parts while also creating a steel-hard surface that increases durability and protects against corrosion.
The release properties provided by Tufram 641 ensure that substances can be easily removed from aluminum parts without the need for corrosive and damaging cleaning solvents. Ink can be easily wiped off rollers and ink pans, biological materials can be easily cleaned from clinical diagnostic equipment, and sticky foodstuffs removed from dairy mixers and food processing equipment.
In the case of the clinical and medical industry, Tufram 641's properties also protect diagnostic equipment from high and low pH reagents that can stain and corrode aluminum parts. Tufram 641 meets all USDA and FDA codes.
According to General Magnaplate, the need for less cleaning time, the reduced requirement for corrosive cleaning solvents, and the increased hardness of the part's surface all combine to increase the lifespan of aluminum parts and increase production efficiency.
