Each Kenray former is individually designed and constructed for a specific purpose, so it makes sense to use a surface coating that can add efficiency, cost effectiveness and long-life. So whatever former you require - fresh produce, snack foods, non-food or medical, Kenray can provide a coating to match.
We take the opportunity to introduce our newest coating from Armoloy - we call it and Kenray are the only company producing formers for packaging, that have access to this exceptional surface-coating process. It can truly provide many benefits and advantages over other coatings.
Kenray have partnered with Armoloy in an exclusive contract to provide the ultimate surface coating. Armoloy is a hard, thin, dense chrome coating with a micro-nodular surface texture that was originally developed to protect a wide range of tools and components.
The Benefits of Armoloy include:
Other Kenray Coatings include:
Kenray industrial chromium plating, also known as hard chrome or engineered chrome, is used to reduce friction, add wear resistance, or increase corrosion resistance. This is the Kenray standard coating and provides a high level of cost effective, day-to-day wearability for many uses.
The Kenray anodizing process is applied to most plates on the Classic, K-Lite and Superior range forming sets. This process increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and provides an increased surface hardness. It also makes plates easier to clean and more difficult for bacteria to settle.
Industrial products made with fluoropolymer resins have exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion, and stress-cracking. Kenray PTFE non-stick is ideally used to coat the inside of tubes to significantly increase the slip coefficient.
A pharmaceutically approved coating specifically designed for high-care equipment. Fully Food and Drug Approved, the coatings offer a high degree of protection to the forming set and offer a guarantee against cross-contamination.
A Coating specifically designed to resist the cleaning substances widely used in the salad industry. It allows lighter-weight materials to give the same benefits as stainless steel but without the weight penalty this gives to the forming set. The usual application is with K-Lite.
Kenray developed the K-Dampen coating to reduce the sound of some products as they fall. A typical application might be on a feed chute or funnel, where heavy product might cause operator fatigue because of noise.
