Accolan Silver is a tough, durable and heat resistant fluoroplast coating, with excellent non-stick qualities. Accolan Silver is also flexible, and coated items can be bent after the sintering.
Accolan Silver is an often over-looked coating, which has excellent all-round qualitites common to fluoroplast coatings. Accolan Silver is suitable for use in the foodstuffs industry, e.g. in dough vats and mixers and on conveyer belt, toasters and welding tools. Accolan Sivler is also used in the glue industry; glue dispensing machines are often coated with Accolan Silver.
In addition, Accolan Silver makes an excellent coating for knives, cutting tools and not least vacuum and thermal moulders.
As a result of its excellent all-round properties, Accolan Silver is also suitable for use with frozen products and freeze-drying trays.
Accolan Silver can be strengthened with Accowear, where necessary.
Accolan Silver is silver- metallic in colour and has a half-matte finish. In order to achieve maximal attachment, and thereby extend product lifetime, rinse and sandblast the product to be coated prior to coating in order to remove impurities and to ensure optimal attachment.
Damaged coating cannot be repaired on site but must return to Accoat to for re-coating.
Use of sharp tools and similar equipment can damage the coating.
We recommend that employees who work with coated tools etc. be informed that the coating can be damaged by the use of sharp items such as knives, chisels and screwdrivers.
We are happy to provide sample plates treated with Accoat coatings free of charge, allowing you to see for yourself whether the coating matches your requirements. Contact our sales department.
