Nsk line (NonSticK coatings)
The Nsk (NonSticK coatings) series includes a vast range of coatings that have been specifically studied and formulated to prevent sticking of products that, due to their nature, tend to attach and stick to surfaces.
The most classic example that everybody knows about is the non-stick frying pan that allows you to cook up a nice omelette without it attaching itself and becoming ruined by sticking to the surface of the pan.
The same result can be achieved in the industrial field, for example to prevent food products such as fresh pasta, oven products, cheeses, flour etc. from sticking, or to reduce sticking of paints, inks, adhesives, rubber, plastic and much more besides.
The advantages that this produces are easier cleaning of coated surfaces, greater productivity, minimal production waste and a greater quantity of finished product.
The range of Nsk coatings is mainly comprised of fluoropolymers including: PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) and PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) which, in turn combined with other resins, allows us to obtain an infinite variety of products, each of which is able to bring out its particular characteristic for each specific use.
STT’s thorough knowledge of each individual coating, according to the operating conditions of the component to be coated, allows it to select the most suitable coating from its own product range to meet the demands of the customer or, if necessary, to develop new, tailor-made formulations.
Most Nsk coatings are available with FDA approval for contact with foodstuffs.
