Traction Coating

Traction coatings enable product to move through a manufacturing process at increased line speeds

Products We Use Traction Coating


In order to handle product and move it through the production process traction is needed for grip to either pick it up or push/pull it along. Our traction coatings alter surface roughness and hardness to control the level of grip, creating optimum drive without marking or scratching your product. Once our coating has provided the traction needed it’s just as important that it releases the product with ease. We have a range of non-stick polymers with fantastic release properties that also have the added benefit of being easy clean. This and the control given by our traction coatings means our customers can increase line speeds and quality whilst reducing down time and costs.

Products we use include:

Common Uses of Traction Coating


  • Rolls
  • Feeder Bowls
  • Chutes
  • Shafts
  • Vacuum Plates

Overview of performance properties

  • Friction Control
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Non-stick
  • Heat Resistance
  • Chemical Resistance

With our bespoke service we can adjust the coat thickness and surface roughness of our traction coatings to ensure you get the best out of your application.

All we need to know is the size of the part and what product it comes into contact with and we can recommend the best coating for you.
