During use, industrial surfaces are constantly exposed to intense strains. Aggressive cleaning agents and normal wear and tear take their toll. But over the years clogging, corrosion and damage can also severely impair functionality. An extremely effective way to protect components and machines, and to optimize their long-term utility is to use functional coatings. In the process belt technology sector, a remarkable breakthrough has been achieved with patented non-stick coated process belts developed by the technical weaver GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG in cooperation with the surfacing technology company Pallas Oberflächentechnik GmbH & Co. KG.
