Release Coating Functions and Features
Release coatings are used to maintain and improve production process operations in a wide variety of industrial settings. The release coating category includes fluoropolymer, fluoropolymer FEP, and fluoropolymer PTFE. At Secoa Metal Finishing, we provide exceptional fluoropolymer coatings that effectively stop corrosion, create long-lasting and durable surfaces, and make cleanup a cinch.
Lengthening Equipment Operations
Release coatings can be used to enhance machinery performance, and can be applied without the use of other lubricants which may attract dirt particles.
Applying release coating to a machine can help it achieve smooth operation and greater efficiency, even if the machine has been dormant for extended periods of time. In some cases, release coatings can also bring down noise levels generated by equipment, and lower the amount of friction between pieces of machinery.
Release coatings cure quickly, are easy to apply, and provide surfaces with protection and durability. As a result, they are used in many different industries, including automotive, national security, communications, and electronics. Release coatings are tougher than Teflon, and provide a cost-effective way to ensure the longevity of your equipment.
Fluoropolymer is heat resistant, and can function in temperatures up to 500°F. Because of this, it is used to protect electrical wires from sustaining heat damage.
Due in part to their high heat resistance, fluoropolymer coatings are often used in the food prep industry. They also make cleaning cookware a breeze thanks to their nonstick properties.
Using release coatings can increase your equipment’s lifespan and help it operate more efficiently, which will save you money in the long run.
