Teflon Coating for Food Processing Iowa
Sticky sugars and wet flours can gunk up machines in a jiffy. This can make it difficult to keep production moving along when these are the products you work with on a daily basis. Liquid lubricants are generally not an option when working in the food processing industry as liquid can affect the makeup of the food. And let’s be honest, wet bread is about as desirable as a rainy, fifty degree July day. DuPont Teflon® coatings and Whitford coatings are great options for covering materials used in the commercial processing of food. Coating Solutions will coat any part that is needed for food processing machinery in Iowa – that is, any part that can stand up to the high cure temperatures.
Items We Typically Coat:
- Waffle Irons

Nonstick Coatings for Food Production Iowa
Fluoropolymer finishings are routinely picked as the preferred choice for coating parts used in food processing. Food doesn’t stick to fluoropolymers when compared to other materials that are used in food processing. But it has many more uses than just making sure that pork cutlets don’t stick and burn to a skillet. The high release of fluoropolymers produces a more uniformed product when it comes out of molds. Flour doesn’t stick to large hoppers, and dough rollers can operate regularly. And fluoropolymers for food production are FDA approved coatings, so you know they are ok for contact with food. For the food processing industry, it makes a lot of sense to have all parts that come into contact with food coated with Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating.
Financial Benefits of Teflon® and Fluoropolymers
The nonstick benefits of fluoropolymers means more output as machines are not turned off to remove buildup and scrape and clean as regularly. And when cleaning does need to be done, nonstick means that parts coated with fluoropolymers are incredibly easy to clean and are unaffected by strong cleaning chemicals. Less cleaning saves many businesses in Iowa additional cleaning agent usage and labor costs. And even more money can be saved due to the fact that equipment coated with fluoropolymers is always less expensive than exotic and/or highly polished metals. Teflon® coated equipment also has a longer life than products that are made with other material and, subsequently, comes with lower maintenance costs. This is why covering parts with Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings is the financially wise choice for many businesses in Iowa.
Heat Resistance of Teflon® Coatings
Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings are also resistant to heat, which makes them great for equipment used food processing. These coatings can function properly at continuous temperatures of up to 500°F (260°C), or 600°F at interrupted intervals. And, obviously, they can endure steam cleaning. Everything that is exposed to high heat during food processing, including pipes, valves, gaskets, and pumps can be coated with Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings so that they can function in properly for a longer period of time. The cost-effectiveness of these coatings make them the obvious choice for companies that use food processing equipment.
