Household appliances


Sealing of household appliances and kitchen equipment is essential in most household applications. The seals must be of high quality in order to meet the technical requirements specified by the customers: guaranteed sealing, sliding, resistance to fluids, durability, noise reduction, heat dispersion.

For more than 40 years Techné has acquired strong expertise in the design and production of sealing solutions for household appliances.

Techné is equipped with a department for surface coatings at its head office in Morancé (France). The surface coatings proposed here meet customers’ needs such as improved sliding, reduced assembly effort, extended service life, identificiation and customisation of the seals.

Techné offers approved surface coatings for food and drinking water applications:

  • Coating T-Coat® PPA : FDA and CE 1935/2004
  • Coating T-Coat® PA : FDA, CE 1935/2004, UBA, W270, NSF H1 and WRAS
  • Coating ​​​​​​​T-Coat® LN : FDA

While the T-Coat® PPA coating improves sliding properties and reduces "stick-slip" effects, the T-Coat® PA coating is suitable for dynamic applications. It facilitates the mounting of the seals (reduction of assembly efforts). The T-Coat® LN coating is particularly suitable for dynamic applications with low loads as well as for silicone seals and very small sealing parts.
