Teflon Coatings for Packaging Machinery Duluth
Teflon® and other fluoropolymer coatings are phenomenally beneficial when applied to packaging machinery parts. The primary properties that these coatings are known for, nonstick and resistance to heat and abrasions capabilities, make them excellent for parts that are utilized in machines that produce packaging materials. Coating Solutions coats parts for many customers operating in the packaging industry in Duluth. Contact us today if you have a part, or many parts, that need to withstand high heat and/or be nonstick.

Items Often Coated for Packaging Machinery:
- Heat Seal Bars
- Cutting Blades
- Sealing Heads
This is definitely not a full list. This is because any part that needs to stand up to high heat and be nonstick – metal on metal rubbing parts, for example – are ideal for an application of Teflon® or fluoropolymer coatings.
Nonstick Teflon® and Fluoropolymer Coatings for Packaging Machinery Duluth
Packaging machines are asked to juggle a variety of tasks for long periods. They can run for one shift or every shift, five days a week, or all week. This means they need to be in top working order at all moments. And when they are working with thin films of plastic and labels and foils, there are many chances for them to stick and become log jammed. Also, when metal parts rub against one another, this creates friction, which can cause machines to operate poorly and the parts to wear, thereby slowing down and stopping production as they are repaired. This is why covering parts with Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating that provides excellent release is advantageous to the production of a company in Duluth. These coatings will help everything run smoothly and stick-free.
Abrasion Resistance of Teflon® and Fluoropolymer Coatings
When machines run nonstop, such as they often do in the packaging industry, they are prone to wear faster, subsequently causing work stoppages due to replacing parts. Coating parts with Teflon® or other fluoropolymers will extend their lifespan, saving businesses costs from replacement parts and extra labor. Any parts that are at a high risk of stress or corrosion from continual use would benefit from an application of Teflon® or other fluoropolymer coatings. Coating Solutions can help you figure out which coating will be best for your packaging machinery parts.
Heat Resistance Capabilities
Fluoropolymer coatings have great temperature stability. Heat sealing is a basic step in the packaging industry, and the parts that are used in this operation have to be resistant to heat. It has been found that fluoropolymer coatings can help machine parts last as much as 50 times longer as opposed to non-coated parts. In fact, they can withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) for continuous use, and 600°F for intermittent operation. Coating Solutions will coat your packaging machinery parts so that they will have longer lifespans, increasing productivity and saving you expenses.
