The Science Of Precision Coatings

Food Processing & Packaging

Key Benefits:

  • USDA approved and FDA compliant for use with food applications.
  • Corrosion resistance is equivalent to 440 SS.
  • Enhances cleaning and sanitary operations.
  • Chemical resistant to most cleaners used for maintenance and equipment washdown.
  • Absolute bond to base metal will not flake chip or peel.
  • Nodular micro surface reduces friction for improved lubricity and release.
  • Can run dry with excellent lubricity in cleanroom applications.
  • Nyflon® for the lowest coefficient of friction and release.
  • Electroless Nickel® for best corrosion resistance.
  • Can withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures, temperature for ArmoloyTDC® /XADC in excess of 1300F.

Armoloy TDC/XADC have been applied to food-processing and food-packaging components for their unique combination of wear resistance and corrosion resistance. The Armoloy coating’s absolute bond and stainless steel against stainless steel galling protection provide the ultimate in processed product purity, knowing the coating will not chip, flake, or peel.

Armoloy TDC® and XADC® (coatings) are approved for food contact applications by the USDA and considered safe for food contact by the FDA. The coatings can withstand temperatures above 1200˚ F and are not affected by thermo-shock when cooled.

The coatings’ resistance to corrosion caused by daily wash-downs aids in reducing maintenance downtime. Applying the coatings to stainless steel results in magnitudes of corrosion resistance much greater than either stainless steel or coated tool steel, and excellent for galling protection.

Typical applications include bearings, chutes, pumps, linear rails, cutting tools, and machined packaging-line components.

The Armoloy family of coatings are specifically designed to keep machinery and equipment running longer. For increased wear life, reduced friction, protection from corrosion and galling, and many other benefits, Armoloy of Illinois provides a full range of metallic surface coatings to the manufacturing community. High precision is our specialty.

Armoloy provides industry-leading protective metallic coatings that benefit various industries, including food processing/packaging, oil/gas extraction, Aerospace, medical, and nuclear industries, to name a few. Metal surface treatments tailored to these applications must withstand extremely harsh conditions and provide added durability capable of extending the life of components and systems. Our experienced staff can help engineer the right metal finishing solution to your application.

Our proprietary metal surface treatments are fully compliant with the industry's most rigorous requirements and certifications. At less than 170ᵒF, the Armoloy metal finish process is considered a "cold process" that will not distort or anneal coated parts. The Armoloy coatings form a hard protective metallic surface with an absolute bond to the base metal that will not affect part tolerances or balance. This thin, precision coating will improve surface hardness and lubricity while dramatically increasing your coated parts' wear life. Our stringent quality requirements and onsite product testing will ensure your parts meet strict industry standards.

Armoloy offers a variety of coating solutions engineered to solve your coating needs. The Armoloy TDC/XADC coating will not flake, chip or peel from your base material ensuring a safe coating process that is food and medical application safe. Your maintenance and machinery expenses will lessen thanks to the coating's increased wear resistance leading to decreased downtime and replacement costs. Don't settle for traditional metallic plating shortcomings when you can have the Armoloy family of coatings protecting your valuable automated systems and components.
