Teflon Coating for Food Processing Minnesota
Sticky sugars and wet flours have the ability to gunk up machines in a jiffy. This can make it hard to keep production moving along when these are the products you’re working with on a daily basis. Liquid lubricants are typically not an option when working in the food processing industry as liquid can affect the makeup of the food. Let’s be honest, wet bread is about as desirable as a rainy, fifty degree July day. Chemours® Teflon® coatings and Whitford coatings are fantastic 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 Minnesota – that is, any part that can stand up to high cure temperatures.
Items We Typically Coat:
- Waffle Irons
- Bread Pans
- Mixers and Beaters

Nonstick Coatings for Food Production Minnesota
Fluoropolymer finishings are consistently picked as the preferred choice for coating parts used in food processing. Food doesn’t stick to fluoropolymers as opposed to other materials that are used in food processing now and then. But it has many more uses than just making sure that chicken breasts don’t stick and burn to a skillet. The high release of fluoropolymers produces a more uniformed product as it comes out of molds. Flour doesn’t stick to large hoppers, and dough rollers can operate constantly. And these are FDA approved coatings, so you know they are safe for contact with food. For the food processing industry, it’s really a no-brainer 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 higher output as machines are not turned off to remove buildup and scrape and clean as often. And when cleaning does need to be done, nonstick means that parts coated with fluoropolymers are very easy to clean and are unaffected by strong cleaning chemicals. Less cleaning saves many businesses in Minnesota additional cleaning agent usage and labor costs. And even more money can be saved because of 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 made with other material and, subsequently, comes with lower maintenance costs. This is all why covering parts with Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings is the financially wise decision for many businesses.
Heat Resistance of Teflon® Coatings
Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings are very 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 stand up to 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 a proper manner for a longer period of time. The cost-effectiveness of these coatings make them the obvious choice for companies with food processing equipment.
