General Magnaplate, a developer of surface enhancement for metals and other substrates, has introduced CS-1331 for most ferrous and non-ferrous metals. CS-1331 offers exceptional polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic release and wear resistance properties with proven thermal stability up to 500° F. By solving PVC sticking and wear, this coating reduces the downtime and expenses caused by these issues. CS-1331 coating applied to a seal bar to prevent sticking and wear.

In repeated testing at 500° F, CS-1331 released the PVC plastic during cleaning using a simple rag, without applying much pressure on different areas of the treated surface. It also outperformed other non-stick release coatings at the elevated temperature. CS-1331’s advantages include corrosion, outgassing and chemical resistance, as well as a low coefficient of friction (COF), high contact angle and U.S. Department of Agriculture/U.S. Food and Drug Administration compliance.

Two General Magnaplate surface treatment families offer the CS-1331 composition: Lectrofluor, a polymer matrix coating for harsh environments, and Plasmadize, an enhanced thermal spray ideal for very large surfaces or parts.
