Teflon Coatings for Packaging Machinery Mankato
Teflon® and other fluoropolymer coatings are marvelously beneficial when they are applied to packaging machinery parts. The chief properties that these coatings are popular for, nonstick and resistance to heat and abrasions capabilities, make them wonderful for parts that are utilized in machines that produce packaging materials.

Items Often Coated for Packaging Machinery:
- Heat Seal Bars

This is by no means an exhaustive list. And this is because any part that has to endure high heat and be nonstick – metal on metal rubbing parts, for instance – are great for an application of Teflon® or fluoropolymer coatings.
Nonstick Teflon® and Fluoropolymer Coatings for Packaging Machinery Mankato
Packaging machines are often asked to run for extended periods of time. They can function for one shift or every shift, five days a week, or nonstop. This means that at all moments they need to be in good working. And when they are working with thin films of plastic and labels and foils, there are many times where they can stick and consequently become log jammed. Furthermore, when metal parts rub against one another, friction is created, which can cause machines to operate poorly and the parts to wear, thereby slowing down and stopping production when they are repaired or replaced. This is why covering parts with Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating that comes with excellent release is beneficial to the production of a company in Mankato. These coatings will assist in helping everything run more smoothly and stick-free.
Abrasion Resistance of Teflon® and Fluoropolymer Coatings
When machines run nonstop, such as they frequently do in the packaging industry, they are prone to wear faster, thereby resulting in work stoppages while parts are replaced. When parts are coated with Teflon® or other fluoropolymers, lifespans will be extended, therefore saving businesses from unnecessary costs for replacement parts and extra labor. Any parts that have a higher risk of stress or corrosion from continual use would profit from an application of Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating. Coating Solutions can help you figure out which coating will be the best for your packaging machinery parts.
Heat Resistance Capabilities
Fluoropolymer coatings are an excellent option for parts that require temperature stability. Heat sealing is an essential step in the packaging industry, and the parts that are utilized 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 parts that aren’t coated. Furthermore, they can stand up to temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) for continuous use, and 600°F for intermittent uses. Coating Solutions will coat your packaging machinery parts so that they will have longer lifespans, increasing productivity and saving you from wasting funds.
