Food For Thought

Southwest Impreglon is home to the brand coatings – Impreglon and Fluorolon®.

When it comes to purity, the Federal Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture enforce strict guidelines. As for non-stick/release properties, our wide range of USDA/FDA approved food/pharma coatings make food and pharmaceutical production simply better. Molds, mixers and hoppers, Southwest Impreglon’s proprietary and tradename coatings bring a lot to the table: Stain resistant, durable and of course – pure and highly non-stick.
