MOLDING

The molding industry is vast and widespread throughout North America with billions of dollars in annual revenue. While many categories define this segment, 16,000 companies are involved in just the manufacturing of plastic products alone.

Teflon™ coatings can cut manufacturing costs by eliminating release agents and reducing product defects. Teflon coatings provide a more permanent, nonstick, repeatable high-release solution for processes across every molding industry segment.
