PTFE Coating Purposes for Bakeware
For years commercial bakeries have had to rely on industrial coatings that do not provide the release or longevity needed for optimal productivity. Industrial Teflon® coating services and technologies were specifically developed to address the stringent requirements of commercial bakeries. These Teflon® coatings are, by far, the longest lasting available today, and they provide the best release for baked products. Orion is one of only three firms in the country licensed to apply such industrial Teflon® coatings.
The PTFE coating on pans lasts 10-15 times longer than the finish on silicone-glazed pans. Some bakeries report achieving 3500 to 5000 cycles on bun pans. Obviously, the care and handling of pans influences their lifespan. Filling every cup with dough and proper cleaning between cycles are two simple ways to assure maximum pan life.
Some bakeries are able to run coated pans for as long as three years before recoating. In addition to cost savings from eliminating silicone glazing the use of Teflon® coatings will result in:
- Higher productivity
- Increased product flow
- Lower rejects
- Lower Labor costs
Pans with PTFE coatings with are virtually maintenance free, because of their superior non-stick properties. Pan cleaning can be done at room temperature using pressurized air or a soft brush. The exceptional release properties of Teflon® coatings allows baked products to be removed without the addition of oil or grease.
Orion can make any coating Anti Microbial upon request.
