Product handling and packaging is a speciality.
For liquids corrosion resistance can be a requirement of a coating and here Impreglon UK has probably the most comprehensive range available. The coating range includes ECTFE (Halar®) and the best corrosion resistant PFA on the market. Powders often cause problems when dropping down through hoppers or vessels. Here an Impreglon UK coating can be used to improve the powder flow so as to prevent or minimise bridging, chimney effects or rat-holing. Conductive coatings are available for those areas where static build up represents a danger.
Impreglon UK coatings for tablet handling are usually of the hard wearing low friction variety. The choice of coatings is extensive, from a straight forward fluoropolymer through to a sophisticated ceramic reinforced system. Packaging is an area where Impreglon UK is a clear leader. Whether it be improving the flow of glass phials or the creation, filling and sealing of blister packs, Impreglon UK has a coating to do the job.
Blister packaging uses coatings that are hard wearing with non-stick properties. For example, if a preheater plate is used, then the coating must prevent the plastic film from sticking to the hot preheater plate. Likewise for the vacuum/blow moulding tools and the heat seal tools. Having achieved the non-stick property, the next objective is to have a coating that lasts for as long as possible. Impreglon UK has coatings with lifespans measured in years.
FDA and EU compliant coatings are standard of course.
