In the medical and pharmaceutical industries, slowdowns and holdups caused by sanitation issues, part malfunction and sticky substances can harm your throughput, efficiency and time to market. Our USDA- and FDA-compliant surface treatments eliminate these problems.
We engineered our surface treatments to become part of the metal substrate, creating new surfaces with critical properties like corrosion and chemical resistance, a lower coefficient of friction (COF) and better release. With our protective coatings, your machines can operate more reliably, sanitation becomes easier and your manufacturing processes will run without interruption for faster lead times.
Superior protection against wear, friction and corrosion
Provides maximum corrosion protection for aluminum
Protects aluminum and aluminum surfaces from corrosion and friction
Protects ferrous, non-ferrous and mixed metal parts against harsh environments and chemicals
This thermal spray composite protects and restores metal parts
Outperforms stainless steel for wear and abrasion resistance
Tablet presses typically contain aluminum parts such as the feeder, scrapers and deck plates. With a hardness of 40 to 50 Rc and a dry-lubricated surface, Tufram gives all these components good release properties plus protection against wear, corrosion, sticking and galling. And for iron components, Magnaplate HMF® eliminates sticking issues and provides static dissipation and a smooth mirror finish.
Looking for a USDA- or FDA-compliant surface protection coating to keep your medical or pharmaceutical processing equipment running reliably? Our engineers are available to help you select the right coating for your application.Request a Quote
Keeping packaging equipment up and running is top priority for engineers and plant personnel. Faced with ever-increasing productivity benchmarks based on fast and efficient operation, packaging engineers must continually fight against issues such as sticking, premature wear, abrasion and corrosion. To eliminate these challenges, nano-engineered coatings are being used to protect machine components and solve performance problems in food, pharmaceutical and consumer goods packaging.
The development of computer-controlled asphalt testing equipment to simulate and then quantify and predict the punishment which various asphalt mixes will be able to endure when used to pave actual roads has placed enormous burdens on the components of that test equipment. To stand up to simulations of heavy road wear, equipment designers have had to look beyond the conventional and to seek out materials that could endure tremendous stress. That was precisely the position in which the worldwide, leading supplier of such equipment, Pine Instrument Company of Grove City, Pennsylvania, found itself.
