Non-stick Release Coatings

Surface Treatments With Non-stick Properties Eliminate Costly Production Downtime

Our coatings ensure and maintain productivity for a wide range of equipment subject to sticking and release issues. We offer FDA- and USDA-compliant coatings that prevent sticky food substances from slowing down machinery and affecting product quality. We also create coatings that prevent glue residue buildup and plastic mold adhesion that can damage equipment and cause cleanup delays.

We formulate surface treatments that impart performance attributes tailored to your application needs, such as non-stick/release properties and lower friction. The coatings create dense, non-porous and dry-lubricated surfaces that release substances better so equipment performs reliably. That means greater uptime and productivity, along with quality coated components.

  • Enables easy cleanup
  • Self-lubricating, non-porous, non-wetting surface characteristics
  • Chemical, acid and alkaline resistance
  • Surface hardnesses up to Rc 68
  • USDA and FDA compliance

Plasmadize®

This thermal spray composite protects and restores metal parts.

Capabilities

  • Higher lubricity and better mold release than conventional thermal sprays
  • Provides corrosion and wear resistance for all metals
  • Hardnesses beyond the Rc scale
  • Creates a non-porous, moisture-proof surface
  • USDA and FDA compliance

Tufram®

Hard anodizing coating protects aluminum and aluminum surfaces from corrosion and friction.

Capabilities

  • Dramatically improves the surface hardness of aluminum
  • Surface hardness between Rc 40 and Rc 65

Industries

Manufacturing and Automation

Surface treatments keep high-speed manufacturing and automated processes moving without issues related to sticky substances and release. Tufram, for example, provides superior mold release and eliminates sticking and product hang-up. Plasmadize is a desirable coating for preventing adhesive buildup during the last step in manufacturing — packaging.
