Commercial Baking and Food Processing
Secoa Metal Finishing coats and services parts from many well-known appliance manufacturers, cookware companies, commercial bakeries, and others in the food preparation and processing fields.
The FDA-approved release and non-stick coatings we offer bakeries and food manufacturers have allowed them to eliminate expensive and messy oils often used to provide a low friction surface. These same coatings allow these food preparation companies to clean up faster, which helps them keep their operations running more efficiently. All of this easily translates into long-term savings.
Appliance manufacturers come to us for high-heat resistant coatings for ranges and cooktops.
We are even able to apply thin coatings to cutting blades that allow the blades to maintain an edge while more easily cutting through a variety of products such as raw dough, cooked dough, and meats.
Here is a list of some of the coatings we can offer in this segment:
- Fluoropolymers such as PTFE, PFA, and FEP
- Silicone Gels
- FDA-approved MMT
Utilities and Municipalities
Municipalities of all sizes across the country have relied on Secoa Metal Finishing in their infrastructure, using our products to protect and enhance the metal in multiple areas.
Water Supply Components
We are national leaders in the fluidized bed dipping of water meters, valves, and associated components. We can help utilities and cities replace their aging water systems with low-cost coated iron components. We can provide a holiday-free coating on parts made of ductile or gray iron, and with proper care, they will remain corrosion free for the duration of their useful lives, in most cases for decades. Common coatings for these projects include:
The high-tech arenas of Aerospace and Military have embraced the low coefficient of friction and corrosion resistant coatings that Seoca Technology can apply such as various fluoropolymers and thermoplastics. The exacting processes required in this market, as well as the precision overhaul and repair of landing gear parts, blades, vanes, and turbine components, call for the experience we offer. We have been servicing this sector with fluoropolymer coatings since the 1960s and understand the exacting nature of their specifications.
- Fluoropolymers – There is a wide range of various fluoropolymers that offer an exceptional combination of low friction, corrosion protection, and precise application that are employed by the aerospace industry.
- Nylon 11 (polyamide) – Nylon 11 is a low-gloss thermoplastic that offers superior wear, abrasion, and corrosion protection. We have over 15 years of experience applying this powder coating, both electrostatically and via fluid bed dipping. We are licensed by Arkema to be an applicator of their Rilsan™ brand Nylon 11.
- DiamonDyze™ enhanced anodizing – The lab-proven superiority of our DiamonDyze™ anodizing system is an ideal process to be applied to light-weight aluminum components that are a necessary part of the aerospace industry. It offers higher wear and corrosion protection over standard anodizing.
Here at Secoa Metal Finishing we have numerous FDA-approved coatings that have value in the ever-evolving fields of medical, dental, and surgical applications. We can offer coatings that enhance anti-bacterial properties while reducing friction and increasing release and corrosion resistance. Coatings that are currently used in these fields include:
- Rilsan Nylon 11
- FDA-approved MMT
Our release coating has been used in tire release molds and other mold applications where a durable mold release is required. Textile and carpet businesses count on our coatings for wear resistance and corrosion protection on their rollers and other parts. Drive rollers and gears used in the laminate and wood flooring industry utilize our metallizing process to give consistent feeding of parts, at a fraction of the cost of new components. If you need a smooth, non-stick covering for machinery or molds of any kind, we can meet your specifications.
Improved Heat Resistance
We offer a proprietary release coating that rivals any release coating but offers a more robust and heat resistant surface. Our coating has been specifically created to work effectively in challenging environments where high temperatures are the norm. When it comes to heat resistance our coating can significantly outperforms all other products out there.
Spatter is an irritating yet inevitable part of the welding process. Unfortunately, if left unchecked, spatter can swiftly build up on everything including the welding equipment and surroundings.
As a high-performance coatings specialist, we are able to offer a selection of anti-weld spatter coatings that can be applied to a variety of different surfaces. Cost-effective, easy to clean, and suitable for a wide range of applications, our anti-weld spatter options can transform your welding operation.
