The Quality and Value of DuraShield® Easily Identified for Allergen-Free Baking
In response to the ever-growing need to minimize food risks, Chicago Metallic offers purple color-coded pans with DuraShield® fluoropolymer coating. The coating performs the same as standard DuraShield, but also provides easy identification of bakeware used for allergen-free baking.
The Value of DuraShield® Purple
DuraShield is made with a polymer that lasts approximately ten times longer than glaze. That means less scheduled maintenance, fewer work stoppages, and less worry—making your bakery more productive. Plus, we’re constantly testing new coatings to ensure your bakery’s pans perform at their best.
Superior Product Quality
DuraShield provides excellent dough flow which produces a beautifully browned, perfectly baked product.
Products baked on DuraShield coated pans release effortlessly, which significantly reduces waste and damaged product.
Extended Release Life
Some bakers achieve 5,000 continuous releases without recoating.
In many high-volume operations, DuraShield coating can pay for itself in less than one year.
Release agents and oils typically used to enhance release are unnecessary.
Recoating ServicesOUR EXCLUSIVE METHODOLOGY AND COATINGS PROLONG PAN LIFE AND RESTORE OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE
We’ve perfected the process for cleaning and recoating baking pans through 25 years serving some of the world’s largest and most demanding bakeries.
Hydraulic presses and custom-made dies remove dents and warping, restoring pans to their original shape.
COATING REMOVAL & CLEANING
A proprietary cleaning solution removes the existing coating as well as heavy greases and carbon from pans.
Pans are then coated with DuraShield and cured in high-temperature ovens.
In most cases, pans will be back in your bakery and good as new in 2 to 3 weeks.
DuraShield® Purple Handling Procedures
DuraShield® purple coatings have excellent non-stick properties and resistance to corrosion; however, exposure to excessive heat or moisture and contact with plant equipment or practices that cause abrasion of the coating can shorten the life of your pans. Following these handling requirements will minimize damage and maximize the life of your coated pans. Neglecting to follow these guidelines will reduce the life of your pan and, if the damage is sufficiently severe, may potentially void the warranty
