BCS Bakeware Coatings

Crest Coating is one of two firms licensed to apply BCS Coatings in the U.S. For years commercial bakeries have had to rely on pan coatings that do not provide the release or longevity needed for optimal productivity. BCS Coating Technologies were specifically developed to address the stringent requirements of commercial bakeries. These coatings are, by far, the longest lasting available today, and they provide the best release for baked products. Crest Coating is uniquely positioned to provide this superior product to bakeries in the Western U.S.

BCS Bakeware Coatings


Longer life than silicone glaze – Pans coated by BCS will give you on average about 8 to 12 times as many cycles as pans coated with silicone glaze. Many bakeries report achieving 3500 to 6000 cycles on their pans.

Coating pays for itself in less than one year – Your savings by using BCS will translate to the bottom line through savings associated with higher productivity, increased product flow, lower reject rates, lower labor costs, better equipment utilization, lower energy costs and many other benefits that can be demonstrated by your BCS applicator.

Say goodbye to "Downtime" – Instead of reglazing pans every few weeks, some bakeries are able to run BCS coated pans for one year or more before requiring recoating.

Get rid of the oil and grease – The exceptional release property allows the baked product to come out easily without the need for any release oil or grease. The reduction or elimination of release oil and grease helps keep the bakery environment, electrical components, and ovens cleaner.

Reduce production rejects – By using BCS you will achieve a higher quality product and a much lower reject rate. In addition, you will no longer have to tolerate the white rings or black carbonized spots that silicone glaze creates on your baked goods.


Average number of cycles – 3,500 to 6,000
