PCM Helps Keep Your Pharmaceuticals Safe

non-stick and chemical resistant coatings for pharmaceutical manufacturingIt seems like everywhere you look you see an ad for the latest prescription drug. From hair loss to heart disease, there is a drug out there to help you live a better, longer, happier life. In 2010 alone, the top 50 pharmaceutical companies sold $539.3 billion in prescription drugs. Industry giants like Novartis, Merck, and Pfizer make big profits, but they also spend unbelievable amounts of money to research, test, and manufacture the drugs that save lives every day.  For every blockbuster drug like Lipitor that can bring in billions of dollars, there are those that never make it despite having millions poured into their development.  So clearly this is an industry that can’t afford mistakes, both for the sake of profits and most importantly, the safety of those they serve.

At PCM, we feel like our non-stick and chemical resistant coatings play a big role in making sure the pharmaceutical companies have one less thing to worry about.

Today’s pharmaceutical and biotechnology plants have to able to produce many different types of products without sacrificing purity, cleanability, durability, and low maintenance costs. PCM helps the biggest names in the business to meet their demands by providing coatings made of fluoropolymers.

Flouropolymer coatings are non-reactive, thus they leave no corrosion byproducts to contaminate processes. Coatings such as Teflon® are extremely pure, and unlike untreated stainless steel or glass, they were made to resist the absorption of chemicals.

With almost half of everyone in the US (48%) taking at least one prescription drug in the last month, safe and consistent fluoropolymer coatings like Teflon® are more important than ever.  As the world leader in non-stick coating and lining technology, PCM is proud that the products we provide help guarantee that each and every pharmaceutical you rely on is made as safely and cost-effectively as possible.
