The food manufacturing sector is extremely fast-paced and highly competitive. All manufacturers are under constant pressure for both the lowest prices and the fastest lead times so they need to run their operations as efficiently as possible to survive within such a competitive environment.  

An AFT coating for your equipment can do just that.  

We can help you produce a better quality product, at a lower cost.  

AFT Fluorotec Coatings have specialised in PTFE (Teflon) and Fluoropolymer Coatings for many years.

We have many specially formulated coatings for industrial bakeware and more recently the cooked meat and fish sectors (check out some of our case studies to read about how we've helped other food industry clients).

What our customers say...
"We have always found AFT Fluorotec to be extremely responsive to our requirements, working as we do in a competitive and demanding industry AFT have proven their quality and service to be of a very high standard again and again."

 

It's time to break from tradition

There's a better option!

For years’ food processors in this sector have been reliant and reluctant to change from more traditional solutions like silicon paper, oil & grease. These are expensive and time consuming, both when being used and when being cleaned. This isn't ideal when your business needs to be conscious of costs, but still needs high quality equipment to work in a fast-paced environment.

 

Do YOU Think that silicon paper, grease & oil Are less costly?

This couldn’t be further from the truth.

An AFT coating, if properly looked after, will continue for 1000 - 3000 releases without the use of any additional release agents or consumables. Compared to how much oil, grease & paper is needed for the same release cycles, an AFT coating is a fraction of the cost. When you factor in the man hours of applying and removal of these agents, the disposal costs of silicon paper and associated environmental consideration, an AFT Coating is a much more economical solution.

 

HOW DOES IT AFFECT THE QUALITY OF THE END PRODUCT?

In a good way!

The carbonisation of the oil & grease and the contamination it deposits on the food products is a problem for many food manufacturers. Our coatings are not just a significant cost reduction for your business, but enable you to create a much higher quality finished food product.

 

And what about COOKING WITH steam?

Our coatings can cope!

Cooked meat producers mainly use steam as their choice of cooking their products. This is a challenge for some fluoropolymer coatings on the market as they are permeable. Additionally, there are a number of legislative requirements for any products in contact with food.

All of these considerations are addressed and using our expert knowledge we have formulated many of our coatings to suit such requirements. 

 

In summary, AFT Fluorotec Coatings can:

  • Reduce the costs compared to release agents
  • Reduce the time and costs involved in cleaning your equipment
  • Reduce your carbon footprint
  • Eliminate your carbon deposits
  • Improve the quality of your end product
  • Improve your levels of health and safety
