The PVD and DLC coatings we carry out have obtained the Certification of suitability for contact with food in accordance with to the Regulation EU REG. 1935/2004.
Coatings such as TiN are adopted to protect components for food production in order to reduce the risk of polluting the processed substances. We propose our coatings as substitutes for treatments harmful to health such as galvanic chromium plating and Teflon coating, offering superior performance in terms of the component’s increased resistance to fatigue and wear and therefore of its useful life.
PVD and DLC coatings offer the following benefits to treated components:
- reduction of the friction coefficient, for plain shaft operating components;
- release effect which, thanks to the high surface finish, avoids the accumulation of residue due to the combination of high finish and surface purity;
- decrease of the working temperature of the equipment in contact with foods, with direct limitation to over-heating;
- formation of a protective barrier against numerous products used for cleaning and sterilising the plants.
