By Applying an Abrasion Resistant Release Coating, DECC Helps Commercial Healthcare &
Uniform Laundry Facilities Minimize Maintenance Hassles from Plastic Buildup in Dryers

The DECC Company has been in the commercial laundry market by applying an abrasion resistant release coating to dryer panels, ultimately offering numerous benefits for our

Primarily useful to facilities that focus on healthcare laundry, the coating DECC applies
drastically reduces the amount of plastic and debris that adheres to the inside of a dryer as
compared to a dryer with uncoated panels. The abrasion resistant qualities of the coating
greatly increase its durability, as well, ensuring extended performance as compared to some other panel treatments that must be redone every seven to eight months.

  • DECC’s coating solution for dryer panels:
  • Reduces plastic buildup in your dryer
  • Substantially decreases down-time due to maintenance and cleaning
  • Helps to maintain “like new” dryer efficiency and air flow for an extended period of time

With dryer panels coated by DECC, the need for ice blasting and drilling holes is eliminated. Although routine cleaning of the panels is still required, the time it takes is drastically diminished. Lenny Crosby of West Michigan Shared Laundry stated the following:

“It takes almost 10 hours for one of our maintenance guys to clean one dryer panel that has been in service for seven to ten months. With DECC’s coating, we were able to clean three dryer panels in a little over an hour and they had been in service three or four months longer than the uncoated panels.”

“I can’t describe how happy I am with the performance of this coating, I would recommend DECC and their service to anyone in the industry.”

A dryer with clogged panels can experience a 30-35% increase in drying times or more.

Panels coated by DECC allow for greater efficiency and air flow, as compared to uncoated panels, because it takes far longer for plastic and debris to build inside the dryer. As a result, production capacity is maintained and energy costs are reduced.

As a result of dramatically reduced down-time and labor, combined with increased production capacity and lowered energy costs, the investment of having dryer panels coated by DECC could be returned in a matter of months.
