Cristel applies Exceliss® to some of its non-stick products. What is it?
Cristel selected Exceliss® for its non-stick and mechanical resistance properties.
Exceliss non-stick coating is applied in France in our factory of Fesches-le-Châtel, this warranty the perfect application of it.
Toughness and non-stick performance
The Exceliss® non-stick coating is applied to Cristel traditional stainless steel products.
The base is blasted with an abrasive to roughen it and white-hot particles of stainless steel are then sprayed onto the roughened surface. The particles cool and harden to form peaks and dips that hold the non-stick coating permanently in place.
The coating is applied in three successive layers, which guarantee both the toughness of the coating and its non-stick performance.
Non-stick coatings are part of the PTFE family.
Cristel chose a development and application process for the three layers that uses no PFOA – a solvent used by certain manufacturers that is considered to be dangerous to health and the environment.
