Cookware coatings


GMM offers a wide range of cookware coatings, from entry level “single-coat” systems to the top of the line “three-coat” technology.

In order to maximize the consumer experience, it is crucial to match the quality level of the coating with the quality level of the cookware.  There is no point in putting a high quality coating on a low-end cookware set because the inferior substrate will neutralize much of the coating technology benefits.  Following this point, a high-end cookware set can easily be ruined when coupled with a substandard coating.  Mismatching a coating is a very common (and costly) mistake, and can be easily avoided.

GMM’s cookware coating information can be accessed by the links below, or with the top navigation in the dropdown bar.  These pages are designed to be an educational experience; please watch the informative videos (and photo galleries) that are available for viewing on many pages.

Marrlex is a highly durable coating that is designed to be applied using roller technology.  Marrlex uses specialized flexible resins in order to allow the coating to stretch to accommodate post-forming manufacturing processes.  Please click HERE to get more information on Marrlex for roller coated cookware.

For Midrange Cookware:

GMM also offers a variety of unbranded coatings that can be customized to any type of cookware, substrate, pretreatment method, or application process:

Single Coat Systems

Single coat systems are applied in only one layer, and this single layer must provide adhesion, durability, and food release.  Single coat systems can be made in both solvent based and water based formulas, and are typically used on entry level products.  Click HERE to get information on GMM’s Single Coat systems.

Two Coat Systems

Two coat systems mean that there are two different coatings in the system: a primer, and a topcoat.  Two coat systems are typically used on middle and high-end cookware.  Click HERE to get information on GMM’s 2-coat systems.

Three Coat Systems

Three coat systems have a primer, and midcoat, and a topcoat that comprise the finished coating.  Three-coat systems are normally used on high-end cookware.  Click HERE to get information on GMM’s 3-coat systems.
