Nonstick Teflon® and Fluoropolymer Coatings for Packaging Machinery
Packaging machines handle a multitude of tasks. They can run for one shift or all shifts, five days a week, or continuously. This means they need to be in top working order at all times. And when they are working with thin films of plastic and labels and foils, there can be many opportunities for things to stick and become log jammed. Also, when metal parts rub against one another, it creates friction, which can cause machines to function improperly, thereby slowing down and stopping production while they are repaired. This is why covering parts with Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating that provides excellent release is beneficial to the production of a company. These coatings help things run smoothly, stick-free.
Abrasion Resistance of Teflon® and Fluoropolymer Coatings
When machines run nonstop, such as they often do in the packaging industry, they have the tendency to wear faster, thereby causing work stoppages due to replacing parts. Coating parts with Teflon® or other fluoropolymers will increase their lifespan, saving businesses money from replacement parts and additional labor costs. Any parts at risk of stress or corrosion from continued use will benefit from an application of Teflon® or other fluoropolymer coatings. Coating Solutions can help you determine which coating will be ideal for your packaging machinery parts.
Heat Resistance Capabilities
Fluoropolymer coatings have excellent temperature stability. Heat sealing is a basic step in the packaging industry, and the parts that are involved in this operation need to be resistant to heat. Fluoropolymer coatings have been proven to help machine parts last up to 50 times longer as opposed to non-coated parts. They can withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) for continuous use, and 600°F for sporadic use. Coating Solutions will coat your packaging machinery parts so that they will last much longer, saving you money and increasing productivity.
