Packaging coatings are important for maintaining the efficiency and durability of packaging equipment. These specialized coatings such as Teflontm, Xylan®, and Eclipse® resist wear and environmental factors to improve seal quality and reduce cycle times. They prevent thermal degradation and product buildup, particularly in multihead weighing systems. Additionally, they ensure optimal performance and minimize downtime, enhancing overall packaging operations.

This article highlights the significance of investing in specialized packaging service coatings.

Types of Coatings Used in Packaging Equipment

Here are the solutions that enhance packaging equipment performance:

Teflontm Coating

Teflontm, or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), is renowned for its non-stick properties, making it a vital asset in packaging equipment. When baked onto surfaces, it creates a durable layer that repels water and resists corrosion. Teflontm also improves critical machinery components, such as sealing heads and conveyor belts. It enhances performance and longevity while reducing film sticking and cycle times.

Xylan® Coating

Xylan® coatings stand out as essential solutions for improving packaging service coatings performance. These fluoropolymer materials — including PTFE, PFA, and FEP offer enhanced durability and resistance to environmental factors that make them invaluable for packaging equipment. Xylan® coatings guarantee smoother operations and extended service life by improving surface quality and functionality.

Eclipse® Coating

Eclipse® coating boasts an internally reinforced non-stick system designed to outlast similar coatings. This coating also presents improved performance and prolongs equipment lifespan. Its durable nature ensures improved functionality, which makes it an ideal choice for enhancing packaging service coatings operations and ensuring long-term reliability.

Benefits of Plas-Tech Coatings in Multihead Weighing Systems

Listed below are the advantages of Plas-Tech Coatings in multihead weighers:

Minimized Product Sticking

Plas-Tech Coatings’ solutions for multihead weighing systems minimize product sticking. When products adhere to machinery surfaces, frequent cleaning and maintenance are required, leading to operational interruptions. By reducing product sticking, these coatings ensure smoother operations with fewer interruptions, ultimately enhancing productivity and throughput.

Reduced Cleaning Time

One of the most significant challenges in multihead weighing systems is the time-consuming removal of product residues and equipment hygiene maintenance. Plas-Tech Coatings’ solutions address this challenge by significantly reducing cleaning time. With 50% or more time savings, operators can spend less time on maintenance and more time on production activities.

Chemical Resistance

Plas-Tech Coatings’ solutions are engineered with exceptional chemical resistance that guarantees the integrity and longevity of the coatings even when exposed to harsh cleaning agents. This resistance is crucial in maintaining the effectiveness of the coatings, as they remain unaffected by the cleaning solutions used in routine maintenance procedures.

By preserving the coating integrity, users can rely on consistent performance and durability, minimizing the need for frequent recoating or replacement. Additionally, this chemical resistance enhances the reliability of multihead weighing systems and contributes to long-term cost savings and operational efficiency.
