The workshops have been a great success and registration fills quickly, so if your interested, please register now.
Here is an email from a customer who attended an I³ Workshop last year:
 ". . .I really appreciate Intech's efforts to organize this event.  It was great to meet DuPont people and to meet the people from Intech who we speak with all the time.  Also, the time I spent talking to other Teflon* coaters was extremely valuable.  Even after 30 years in this business, I learned a ton . . ."

New Roller Equipment for Teflon* Coatings

Two years ago, Intech Services developed a custom designed and manufactured rolling machine built to roll your Teflon* coatings properly every time.

In response to customer input resulting from their field experience with the equipment, Intech introduces Roller II; designed among other things, to to be used for a wide range of manufacturer specifications.

New Roller II Features: 

Flexibility: Set speeds as specified by a coating manufacturers for any RPM between between 20 and 60 RPM
Ease of Use: Set the rolling time for any time up to 1 hour - after time has expired, roller automatically turns off
Extended Usage: For other, non Teflon* coating materials, the roller has an "over ride switch"  - rolls until turned off manually

New Roller II Includes Original Standard Features

        - Specifically designed to meet DuPont product specifications
        - Developed for Teflon* coatings contained in 1 gal. cans, 1 gal. jugs and 5 gal. pails - One machine for all sizes.
        - Variable speed selection for each size
        - Made for industrial environment
        - Solid steel bars, cast in urethane and precision ground
        - Gloss white, high quality reinforced fiberglass base with wide footprint for stability during operation
        - 120 V, 60 Htz
        - All parts are line replaceable
        - One year warranty on all parts and labor

It is recommended that Teflon* Coatings be mixed by rolling the container in which it is delivered before it's first use and the first time the container is opened each day.  It is also recommended that it be rolled several times throughout the day it is being used.  This will contribute to consistent quality of application throughout the product's shelf life. 

First mixing should be accomplished on a roller system at 30 RPM for 30 minutes.  Mixing during the day for 10 minutes each time at 30 RPM is sufficient.

Use of impeller type mixers could result in a "sheer" affect on the floropolymers in the liquid, adversely impacting the quality of the coating.  Automated shakers and tumblers are not recommended, as their motion is too aggressive and can cause the liquid to separate potentially damaging the coating material.

Things are looking up

If the high number of quotes requested from Intech Services’ Industrial Shop Equipment Department is any indication of an improving economy, then “things are looking up!”  Customer’s tell us that they have been putting off any shop equipment purchases for a couple of years, but now they feel comfortable about pulling the trigger on a new Hi Temp Oven, a Paint Spray Booth, maybe a Blast Cabinet.

Some customers are expanding in expectation of an industry up turn, others are responding to newly acquired business, others are replacing worn, tired, inefficient equipment.

Whatever the reason, we have observed a tremendous uptick in interest in the shop equipment that Intech Services provides.  If you are in the market for new equipment, please consider Intech Services.  Here is a list of items we have sold to coating companies:
  • High temperature batch ovens
  • Table top lab oven
  • Paint spray booth
  • Blast equipment,
  • Thickness gauges
  • Thermocouples
  • Viscosity cups
We are very pleased with the service and support of manufacturers we represent  The following is a quote from the general manager of a coating company who recently purchased a Precision Quincy oven through Intech Services:
Every expectation has been reached, and more.  The oven reaches 720F in 7 minutes – we were expecting it would take 30 minutes. 
Everything from the buying process, to installation, to usage has gone seamlessly!

Call Intech for a competitive quote for the best equipment, manufactured by qualified companies, for the very specific needs of an industrial coater.
