New Corrosion Resistant Coating for Seafood Processing Blades

Corrosion resistant seafood processing blades and knives.

Summertime brings warm days and lots of time for grilling. Many people love to cook all kinds of seafood this time of year. After all, it doesn’t get much better than surf and turf on the grill during a clear, sunny day! And it’s also an especially great time to work in the seafood industry with its bright future ahead.

According to The Insight Partners, a market research firm, the global seafood market is expected to reach $201.25 billion by 2028 and grow at a CAGR of 3% from 2022 to 2028. This increase is cited for a number of reasons, including the growing focus on health and wellness. A combination of a history of sedentary lifestyle habits along with rising income levels, is compelling many consumers to start adding seafood to their diets.

Here at TGW International, we consider ourselves experts on the seafood market. We specialize in high-quality, stainless-steel, rust-resistant seafood processing blades and knives for all saltwater fish, freshwater fish, and shellfish cutting and packaging operations–both offshore and land-based.

In fact, we’re very excited to introduce a new corrosion resistant proprietary process step for our seafood blades!

New Improved Seafood Blade Range

We’ve seen the huge demand for seafood products, and as evident by market studies and trends, it only continues to grow. We offer knives that aid with filleting, skinning, heading, and slicing, as well as frozen cutters, shrimp deveiners, and crab leg cutters.

With over 100 years of craftsmanship and experience, we are well-versed to handle complex assignments. Our fish processing knives use the highest quality 300 or 400 Series Stainless Steels available. Per instruction, we can manufacture using 17-4 PH Stainless as well D2 HcHc, M2HSS, carbide materials and other specialty materials.

Oftentimes, knives are needed in some of the most severe conditions imaginable such as processing the ships’ salt water environment. In these places, we’ve seen blades go from new to rusty in only 24 hours, which is unacceptable. However, the new TGW knives can last so much longer.

The key is improved corrosion resistance. TGW blades provide industry-leading corrosion resistance, even in the toughest of cutting environments. While other blades rust in 24 hours on the processing ships, we’ve achieved results of well over 100 hours with no corrosion whatsoever.

Sharper Blades Deliver Better Results

Sharp knives make all the difference. Something that we’re proud of is how sharp our knives are right out of the package. So, there’s no need to hone the blade edge prior to installing and making cuts—you can get to work right away. Here are some other benefits:

  • Stay sharper longer: you can run TGW blades longer between re-sharpening, which means longer overall blade life.
  • Easier to re-sharpen: our blades hold their edge better, for faster re-sharpening and less blade material removal, which allows for more re-sharpening before reaching the minimum blade run diameter.
  • Blades run straight and true for the best quality cuts: TGW blades are balanced to run true, time after time – a truer running blade provides better quality cuts, which means less potential waste product.
  • Repeatable results, time after time – for peace of mind.

Efficient Packaging

Another interesting highlight from the recent seafood study is the online retail market is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is because many consumers prefer to purchase seafood products online.

Consumers are opting for online shopping as it saves time, money, and effort compared to other distribution channels, according to the study. The rising familiarity of consumers with the internet has also paved new methods for e-commerce.

This is an important reason why you need the best packaging possible. For instance, we’re seeing a rise in High-Pressure Processing (HPP) and Modified Atmospheric Packaging in the seafood market.
