Wear-resistant, non-stick coatings

March 30, 2003




This family of CPP coatings provide the two properties most desired during bag sealing operations: film/product release (non-stick) and hardness (for long part life). An added benefit of the CPP coating is its corrosion resistance that is necessary in corrosive packaging applications. This USDA-approved, FDA-compliant surface enhancement works equally well with polyethylene and polypropylene films. The CPP coating is uniformly applied to a tolerance of less than .0002 inches to ensure even deposition and provides a surface that will not chip, flake, or peel off. Variations of the CPP coating can be applied to a variey of parts and metals including stainless-steel, aluminum, brass and bronze. For instance, aluminum sealing jaws from a vertical form, fill, seal packaging machine were coated with CPP coating to increase their life and eliminate the need for Teflon tape.
