GMM Launches Coating That Uses Nanotechnology
February 14, 2010
CHICAGO - Global nonstick firm GMM Development Limited has announced the release of DURAMAX to the cookware industry. A breakthrough in nonstick technology, DURAMAX combines nonstick coatings technology with nanotechnology.
Typical high-end nonstick primers consist of a primer, midcoat and topcoat. However, as time goes on these three individual layers are scraped off by the wear and tear of daily cooking, particularly when metal utensils are used. GMM research chemists were able to harness the power of nanotechnology to increase the way the three layers of a coating bond with each other, forming a tremendously hard chemical bond at the atomic level and resulting in an order-of-magnitude performance increase over other nonstick systems measured on standardized industry tests.
According to Ravin Gandhi, Co-founder of GMM, “For the last 10 years nonstick durability has improved by putting harder and harder reinforcing materials into the coating. The problem is that these very hard materials, like titanium, tungsten and even diamond, are suspended in resins that are relatively soft. Nanotechnology solves this problem by allowing the resins and the reinforcements to bond chemically, resulting in DURAMAX’s ultra-hard and super-slippery surface.”
