A Whitford Recommended Coater, or a "WRC" member, is a custom applicator that Whitford recommends to apply their high-performance coatings. In order to be considered for this program, the coater must meet stringent requirements set by Whitford. While Whitford's recommended coaters are not licensed, they do follow their application standards.
Whitford is renowned for being one of the biggest manufacturers of a wide variety of nonstick coatings. Their products are utilized in many industries, including food, medical, aerospace, and automotive. Many of Whitford's coatings are heat resistant as well as chemical resistant, which provide a low coefficient of friction for finished products.
