Packaging equipment is prone to several conditions that can harm surfaces and lead to downtime or premature part replacement. The long list of issues includes:
Buildup of sticky substances that cause high-speed equipment to stick.
Labels and hot melt glues that can build up residue, causing product misalignment or web break issues.
Wear and abrasion that can slow down movable parts or impact other parts of the machine.
Hygiene and safety issues such as mold, bacteria buildup and corrosion.
The good news is surface enhancement coatings can solve these challenges. In our latest webinar, Mind Your Metal: Coating Considerations on Packaging, we examine some common issues in the packaging industry and explore the ways high-performance coatings can solve them to help you reduce downtime and increase productivity.
