Excalibur Coatings - Developed for Cookware
Developed for Cookware, Embraced by Industry

General Information

Excalibur is the toughest, longest-lasting, most durable nonstick coating in the world.

Why is Excalibur so much better than other nonsticks? Because it is reinforced with stainless steel.

Excalibur is the toughest, longest-lasting, most durable nonstick coating in the world.

Most coatings are just what the word suggests: a coating applied over a metal substrate — a surface finish. Excalibur is a system. Stainless steel is arc-sprayed onto the article, actually becoming a part of it. The stainless-steel matrix is then impregnated with premium nonstick coatings. The result: a coating system with the toughness of stainless steel and the "release" properties of the best nonstick — the most durable coating system ever created.

Though developed for cookware, Excalibur's value for industrial applications became apparent immediately. Excalibur is the obvious material to prolong the life of components operating under conditions of high wear and abrasive environments.

Excalibur's properties can be tailored to satisfy special criteria by interchanging the coating components of the system. The limits of Excalibur's capabilities have only begun to be defined.

. The surface of the substrate is blasted with an abrasive to roughen it, so other elements in the Excalibur process adhere to it better. Then, the most important part: white-hot particles of a special stainless steel (Whitford's patented alloy) are sprayed onto the roughened surface.

The particles cool and harden, bonded to the surface, forming a series of "peaks and valleys" that provide a permanent base for the nonstick coatings. Several coats of tough fluoropolymers fill the "valleys" and cover the "peaks", held permanently in place by the special stainless steel "peaks."
