Food Service/Production Industry

The food service industry requires reliable machinery and equipment with coatings that guarantee safety, durability, and compliance with hygiene standards. They must withstand frequent cleaning, exposure to various temperatures, and corrosive substances often found in food processing environments. Moreover, they must be non-toxic and resistant to bacterial growth to prevent contamination of food products.

At Plas-Tech Coatings, we offer cutting-edge coating solutions specifically designed to meet the rigorous demands of the food service industry. Our products are engineered with advanced materials and precision application techniques to ensure optimal performance and longevity. We also prioritize thorough quality control measures to guarantee consistency and reliability in every batch of coatings we deliver.

Types of Food Service Coatings

Plas-Tech Coatings offers the following coating solutions:

  • Teflon™:Also called polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coatings, these solutions prevent food from sticking to surfaces. They also provide exceptional resistance to chemical degradation, corrosion, and high temperatures.
  • Tefzel™: These are made from ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) and are valued for their outstanding chemical resistance and mechanical strength. They are typically used to protect equipment and machinery from harsh cleaning chemicals and acidic food substances.
  • Xylan®: These fluoropolymer-based coatings are known for their low friction and wear resistance properties. They are applied to cooking pans, molds, and conveyor belts to reduce friction, prevent food buildup, and improve operational efficiency.
  • Molykote®: These solutions often contain molybdenum disulfide as a key ingredient, providing lubrication and anti-friction properties in food processing equipment. They are ideal for lubricating bearings and gears in machinery used in food production facilities.
  • Halar®:These fluoropolymer-based coatings are popular for their exceptional chemical resistance and barrier properties. They protect surfaces from corrosive substances, acids, and alkalis commonly found in food processing environments.

Common Applications of Food Service Coatings

Here are some common applications of specialized food service coatings:

Cookware and Bakeware

Teflon™ and Xylan® are commonly applied to cookware and bakeware to provide non-stick properties, making cooking and baking easier and more efficient. These coatings prevent food from sticking to the surface, reducing the need for excess oil or grease and facilitating easy cleanup.

Food Processing Equipment

Coatings like Tefzel™ and Halar® are frequently used to coat food processing equipment such as mixing tanks, conveyor belts, and processing machinery. These specialized solutions provide reliable protection against chemical exposure, corrosion, and abrasion, ensuring the longevity and hygiene of the equipment.

Food Packaging Machinery

Food packaging machinery requires coatings to boost performance and prevent contamination. Teflon™ and Xylan® are usually applied to sealing surfaces and cutting blades to reduce friction, improve release properties, and maintain hygiene standards.

Food Handling Tools

Utensils used for food handling — such as spatulas, tongs, and knives — may be coated with materials like Teflon™ to enhance their non-stick properties. This helps prevent food from sticking to the tools and ensures smooth handling during food preparation and serving.

Food Packaging Films and Containers

In food packaging applications, coatings are applied to films and containers to provide barrier properties, improve seal integrity, and enhance moisture resistance. They help prolong the shelf life of packaged food products and maintain their freshness and quality.

Food Conveyor Belts

Conveyor belts in food processing and packaging facilities are usually coated with food service coatings like Tefzel™ or Halar®. These coatings help ensure smooth and hygienic transportation of food products throughout the production process.

Food Transportation and Storage Containers

Containers for transporting and storing food products can be coated with materials that resist moisture, chemicals, and impact. Coatings help protect food products during transportation and storage, preserving their quality and freshness.
