Coating Services

 
Coating Services

Porcelain Industries specializes in turnkey solutions that enhance the functional performance and value of coated surfaces, regardless of substrate. While we are globally recognized for our superior porcelain coating services, we have recently expanded our capabilities to include Thermolon Sol-Gel nonstick coatings, a 100% PFTE-free non-stick technology.

The Science

Our in-house chemists can help you identify the optimal chemistry and coating for your specific coating application, as well as determine the most efficient application method (automatic or manual). Custom coating formulations allow us to produce specific coating properties at significantly reduced manufacturing costs.

We can also evaluate new or existing coated products to overcome surface problems such as corrosion, adhesion, and abrasion. Our porcelain and Sol-Gel coating engineers offer expert consultation on heat-related metal surface finishing applications such as those found in appliances, cookware and industrial applications.
