GMM offers a wide range of customized 2-coat systems for cookware.
Two-coat systems are the most popular coating technology for cookware, and provide a much higher level of performance than single coat systems. Two-coat systems can be used on mid and high level cookware.
Two coat systems are comprised of a primer coat, which provides adhesion to the base substrate, and also a topcoat layer that is responsible for providing the food release. Because each layer has a separate function, the ability for long lasting performance is greatly enhanced.
Please watch the short video (at left) that depicts how two-coat systems are sprayed onto metal substrates, flashed off, and then cured in a production oven.
Internal Reinforcing Technology
For many years, a key way that the durability of 2-coat systems is enhanced is by utilizing “internally reinforcing” technology. An internal reinforcement is a very small, very hard particle that is added to one, or both, layers of the coating. Standard reinforcements (titanium, tungsten, aluminum oxide, diamond) can help absorb the impact of metal utensils during cooking to a limited degree.
