FDA Food Safe Powder Coat – Characteristics and Benefits

FDA Food Safe Powder Coat – Characteristics and Benefits

The ideal product for non-stick, food safe applications are food grade powder coatings. These coatings are often used on stainless steel and other metal food processing and cooking surfaces. At Secoa Technology, we offer FDA approved fluoropolymer coatings that are designed to prevent corrosion and promote easy clean up, helping to ensure a long-lasting and durable surface. The FDA food safe powder coat products we provide are guaranteed to perform effectively in various food industry applications. The coating’s exceptional wear capabilities and lubricated nature enable the efficient operation of food processing equipment and minimize product contamination throughout repeated cleaning cycles.

Types of Food Grade Coatings

PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) – As one of the most popular nonstick products, PTFE offers exceptional release capabilities and chemical resistance, even at temperatures as high as 600°F. FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) – As a commonly used mold release coating, FEP provides exceptional abrasion and chemical resistance, crack stress resistance, and retention properties.

Food Grade Coating Benefits

Some of the benefits offered by food grade coatings include:
  • Non-stick properties
  • Able to withstand extreme cold and hot temperatures
  • Is not damaged by hot oils, water, steam, and fats
  • Quick mold release
  • Provides protection for food prep equipment
In addition, downtime resulting from the need to perform large-scale, time-consuming cleaning or equipment removal is minimized by the high release coating properties of FDA food safe powder coat. The food industry relies on these types of coatings to sustain consistent and uninterrupted food production. At Secoa Technology, we provide FDA approved coatings that food manufacturers need to simplify cleaning and maintenance, provide lubricity, handle high temperature applications, and supply the needed abrasion resistance and corrosion protection. Our process and work adhere to the highest standards in the industry. We provide quality checks along every stage of the coating process to ensure you obtain the most effective coating solutions.
