Does anyone else ever get lost in those food videos that people now put up on social media? It’s so simple, they just snap their fingers and boom! The brownie ingredients have been mixed. Snap again and boom! Now it’s baking. Snap, boom, the yummy treat is ready! There’s the delicious brownies! So, then you follow the recipe and guess what, it does not turn out the same. The food industry without fluoropolymer coatings, is not the same.

Perhaps it’s user error. Perhaps it’s the supplies they use. Whatever the case, it was not the same. Food is an intricate industry. Whether you are cooking for people on the internet or industrializing food in a warehouse, the materials and cookware that you use to make it matters. A spoon does not do the same job as a mixer. An easy bake oven will not cook as well as a real oven.

Nonstick

No one has ever asked for a sunnyside up waffle. No sir. When you bite into any waffle, an even crispness with a fluffy inside is always the goal. This is made possible by the use of fluoropolymer coatings. Fluoropolymer coatings have nonstick capabilities, allowing whatever you are producing to easily slide out when done. There’s no waffles getting stuck on one edge and leaving another uncooked! Coatings allow for an even cooking. The same can be said for many other food products. Waffle irons, bread pans, mixers and beaters, hoppers, dough rollers, and blades are all great examples of fluoropolymer coated items that have increased in productivity because of their coats.

Heat Resistance

Similar to the nonstick trait, when in the food processing industry, it’s important to have a coat that allows for heat resistance. Food processing equipment must be capable of reaching high temperatures in order to properly cook the food. Fluoropolymer coatings can function continuously at 500°F (260°C), and even 600°F at interrupted intervals. This is why most of us in the food processing industry put this type of coating on anything that is exposed to high amounts of heat.

Benefits of Fluoropolymer Coating

The benefits of fluoropolymer coating is endless. It is incredibly easy to wipe down and clean. It is resistant to chemicals and long-lasting, saving you lots of money in replacement costs. Overall, it has a much lower maintenance cost than others on the market. It is a great financial move for anyone in the food industry.
