The greatest care for delicate goods

food industry

Material residue is often difficult to remove from stainless steel surfaces. It affects precise weighing and filling systems, causing package weights to become inexact. The production process must be stopped and the line cleaned. Downtime and overfilled packages lead to unnecessary expense.

Each production process is unique. Each one has its own recipe, machinery and production conditions that set it apart from other processes. Conventional coating systems are often unable to meet all of these requirements. Our products are backed by extensive testing and experience - application-orientated solutions for our customers reduce costs.

Nonstick coatings, slide coatings, traction, temperature resistance or FDA-approved corrosion protection - Impreglon offers you a solution for all process requirements.

Caramel candy (nonstick coating)

Caramel candy

Caramel candy is made of a chewy, sticky caramel mass. During the production process, the raw mixture is shaped, divided into portions and wrapped in foil.

Prevents sticking and frequent cleaning

Interruptions occur in the production flow, because the forming rolls and transport chutes have to be cleaned frequently. Sticky forming rolls and clogged transport chutes can bring the machine to a standstill.

ChemCoat®

Coating with ChemCoat® optimizes the production flow. Improved nonstick properties prevent raw caramel mixture from sticking to the rolls. Because there is less frictional resistance, the candy can slide more quickly through the transport chute to the conveyor belt.

Reduction in cleaning requirements and optimized processes

Interruptions for cleaning or removing jams can be avoided. Optimizes production times and reduces production costs.

High-quality nonstick coatings and slide coatings

The ChemCoat® coating procedure creates a high-quality surface coating with excellent nonstick properties and/or very good sliding properties. Thanks to our special infusion process, our ChemCoat® polymer coatings and fluoropolymer coatings are particularly well anchored to the substrate.

ChemCoat® nonstick coatings can be applied to aluminum, steel, stainless steel, ceramics and some coppers. They are used in particular in applications requiring good sliding and nonstick properties, as well as high wear resistance.

Coating thicknesses 7 µm to 70 µm
Temperature range: -40 °C to +260 °C
Surface roughnesses (Ra): up to approx. 1.5 µm
FDA approved: yes, with certain coating types
Fluoropolymer layer

Pizza cheese (nonstick coating)

Pizza cheese

During the production of pizza cheese, various vessels and tools come into constant contact with oils and salts. The oil in the cheese sticks to every surface, the salt attacks the materials.

Easy cleaning, reduced wear

During the manufacturing process for mozzarella cheese, it is essential that all surfaces can be cleaned quickly and easily. The machine parts are often made of stainless steel, which does not bond very well with most nonstick coatings. As soon as the coating is damaged  by friction and cracks form, oil and cleaning fluids penetrate the coating and reach the metal surface. This loosens the bond even faster and causes the coating to flake off.

PlasmaCoat®

This coating is highly resistant to wear and has a hardness of Rc 35. Because it develops its own surface structure, it eliminates destruction of the coating right at the point where it joins the metal. Because a PlasmaCoat® coating lasts so long, companies save a substantial amount of money due to less downtime and lower costs for spare parts.

Resistance to wear and easier cleaning

The machine parts are less prone to corrosion and wear. The machines don't need to be cleaned as frequently.

Wear-resistant combination coatings

The PlasmaCoat® coating procedure combines the outstanding surface hardness and wear resistance of thermally sprayed metal or ceramic coatings with the nonstick and sliding properties of polymers and fluoropolymers.

PlasmaCoat® combination coatings also offer very good traction properties with various degrees of surface roughnes and profiles. An embedded metal or ceramic coating can be used as a substrate for the coating that protects from wear.

Coating thicknesses: 80 µm to 295 µm
Temperature range: -40 °C to +270 °C
Surface roughnesses (Ra): 1.5 µm to 17.5 µm
Surface hardness: 28 to 70 HRc
FDA approved: yes, with certain coating types

Fruit bars (slide coating)

Fruit bars

Fruit bars and granola bars are made from a chewy, sticky mass. The shaped dough is cut into long strips and then divided into portions. The bars are sealed in foil and then conveyed to the outer packaging process.

Fewer process interruptions

Frequent interruptions occur in the production flow during cutting, transporting and portioning, as the cut strips either stick to one another or the individual fruit bars adhere to the transport rails. This results in machine downtime and production time losses.

ChemCoat®

Coating the spacers and rails with ChemCoat® significantly improves the production flow. The optimized nonstick properties prevent the dough strips from sticking together. The improved sliding properties reduce frictional resistance and allow the fruit bars to slide effortlessly along the track to the packaging station.

Shorter downtimes and cleaning times

Interruptions for cleaning or removing jams can be avoided. Optimizes production times and considerably reduces production costs.
