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.

Recoating Services

We’ve perfected the process for cleaning and recoating baking pans through 25 years serving some of the world’s largest and most demanding bakeries. Our exclusive methodology and coatings prolong pan life and restore optimal performance.


1. Straightening (Optional)

Hydraulic presses and custom-made dies remove dents and warping, restoring pans to their original shape.

Pans are restored to pristine cleanliness.

4. Drying

Pans are dried in industrial ovens.

5. Coating

Pans are coated with our DuraShield 265U coating and cured in high-temperature batch ovens.

5. Shipping

In most cases, pans will be back in your bakery and good as new within 48 hours.


DuraShield® 265U Use & Care



De-pan products quickly.

Baked products should be depanned while the pan is still hot or warm. If baked products are allowed to cool in the pan, steam from the product will penetrate the glaze and may cause coating lifting, premature coating failure, and damage to the pan’s surface.

Do not scratch or scrape pans.

Do not use metal utensils or other objects that could scratch the coating. Deep scratches may cause surface corrosion on the pan.




Clean as you go.

Simply wipe still-warm pans with a clean towel or a towel that has lubricant on it. Avoid pan washing whenever possible.

Wash with mild soap and water.

Commercial baking pans can be washed with pH-neutral products, but only when absolutely necessary. Do not use acidic cleaners, alkaline detergents or abrasive scrubbing pads. Use of these materials will cause the coating to fail prematurely and may cause corrosion. Do not pre-soak or wash in automatic dishwashers.

Thoroughly dry pans immediately after washing.

Warm (not hot) ovens work best.

Once dry, store pans upside down.

Do not nest pans immediately after towel drying. Keep pans away from moist and humid storage environments. The best storage areas are dry, warm storage areas or still-warm ovens.


Pan oils and sprays should not be used with non-stick coatings as they can cause baked products to stick to the non-stick surface. The non-stick surface should be completely dry before placing product onto the pan.
