Whenever you drive fabrics, films or paper good at high speeds, tearing and sticking can create all kinds of engineering and productivity headaches. And one way to get rid of them is by applying the right type of engineered coatings to key machine components.
When selecting an engineered coating for converting applications, it usually pays to focus first and foremost on the release properties. Release is usually the fundamental surface requirement, since converting by definition requires the close contact between machine components and fast-moving, often-sticky products.
However, release is just the starting point. Beyond release, you should also look at high-temperature performance, abrasion resistance and product integrity. Our latest white paper will tell you how coatings can help improve the performance of your machines.
