Coating & Pan Options:

Chicago Metallic offers four coatings to meet your every need. Now there are two colors of our DuraShield Fluoropolymer (dark for everyday baking), and now PURPLE (for allergen-free baking), OptiShield, and AMERICOAT ePLUS, the baking industry’s leading silicone bakery release coating (“glaze”). While our glazed pans are carried in stock, most DuraShield® coated pans are made to order, but with reduced minimum orders.

The industry’s current leading silicone glaze system with longer-lasting performance up to 30 percent more releases.


DuraShield Logo


Our DuraShield® coating provides the longest lasting release life and the best release characteristics for baked goods from buns and rolls to breads and cakes. In addition to having the world’s longest release life, DuraShield coating is certified to be PFOA free.



In response to the ever-growing need to minimize food risks, Chicago Metallic offers color-coded DuraShield® 265U purple fluoropolymer coating. The coating performs the same as standard DuraShield but also provides easy identification of bakeware used for allergen-free baking.


OptiShield Logo


Our OptiShield® fluoropolymer coating was developed to provide a solution for conditions where a standard coating will not perform. Whether you have an extremely sticky dough, or extreme temperatures or oven conditions, we have a formulation that will work for your operation.
