Internally Reinforced Coatings

Internally reinforced coatings have ceramic particles, of varying sizes, added to the primer and midcoat to strengthen the coating. These particles help "lock" the layers together (intercoat adhesion) and help increase the coating's ability to withstand scratching and other external abuse to the surface. It is due to internal reinforcements that nonstick coatings began carrying 10, 15, even 20+ year warranties.

This type of reinforcement can further improve the durability of the coating. If, for example, the reinforcement uses titanium or if the hardness of the reinforcement is high on the MoHs hardness scale.
