Food contact

Safe, high-performance coatings for food contact

Ionbond has United States FDA food contact (TOR) approvals for Ionbond™ coatings, obtained after a strict evaluation for biocompatibility, migration, wear and dissolution in various environments. The Ionbond™ food-contact coatings can be deposited by various technologies at temperatures ranging from 100°C to 950°C, depending on coating choice and substrate temperature resistance. The coatings are recommended because of their outstanding mechanical and tribological properties. The coating thickness can be adapted from 1 to 10 micrometer to best suit each application, for various substrate materials including a broad range of steels.

Ionbond coatings for food contact

High abrasion resistance that reduces wear

Anti-sticking properties

These properties help prevent pastas, dough, candy and other food products from sticking to the tools and machine components during processing

Dry lubrication properties

Used for systems where use of oil is not allowed, where otherwise stainless steel would be running against stainless steel – for instance in liquid pumps for beer and milk, transportation, etc.

Coating applications for food contact
