Foodstuffs

Lebensmittelindustre, Beschichtungen, industrielle Plama-OberflächenveredelungTypical challenges encountered in the foodstuffs industry take the form of unproductive downtime and cleaning periods caused by caking of material on functional components and conveying equipment. Such caking often results in rejects and in fluctuating product quality.

Other sectors in which our layers have proven extremely useful include packaging, and the coating of blades and cutters used in food production.
