TUFRAM®

Improve the properties of aluminium alloys

TUFRAM® is the solution to many of the problems encountered in commercial applications in all types of production, processing and packaging equipment. As a result, the synergistic surface treatments of Mifa Surface Treatment, to which TUFRAM belongs, take on the toughest challenges when it comes to treating surfaces in the various industrial sectors.

Engineers all over the world recognise TUFRAM® as the best solution!

TUFRAM® coatings protect aluminium components against wear, corrosion, adhesion and galling. These coatings combine the hardness of alumina ceramics with the desirable properties of selected Magnaplate polymers to give aluminium components previously unattainable hardness, wear and corrosion resistance and permanent lubrication.

Demanding polymer layer guidelines

The challenge for functional layers in, for example, the food and packaging industries is becoming increasingly demanding. General criteria apply not only to abrasion resistance, corrosion protection and adhesion but also to other aspects. Compliance with various and globally applicable guidelines for the use of coatings that come into direct contact with foodstuffs is no longer an exception for the use of polymer coatings.

Polymercoatings for differerent sectors

Mifa Surface Treatment has been working for several years for industries that require these conformities. The coatings used here meet several guidelines, such as:

  • FDA CFR 21 (subsectie 175.300 van sectie175 en subsection 177.1550)
  • (EC) 2023/2006
  • (EC) 1935/2004
  • (EC) 1272/2008

The application of TUFRAM® layers are not limited to the food- and packaging industry but are also used in industries such as:

  • Oil & Gas
  • Automotive
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Pneumatics
  • Aeronautics
  • Semiconductor
