Recent advances in polymer science have many in-store and industrial bakeries re-examining their use of metal baking pans and trays. New Vectra® liquid crystal polymer (LCP) bakeware, from Ticona Engineering Polymers, is proving to be stronger, more rigid and better at withstanding the heat of industrial ovens than previous plastics.
These new LCP pans cost about the same as their metal equivalents, but are nonstick and don’t require recoating or reglazing. Since the pans are made of LCP, their non-stick surface cannot wear off, which often occurs with PTFE- or silicone-coated pans. Vectra LCP has exceptional performance at hot and cold temperatures. It withstands all food preparation steps from –40 to 500 F. This means LCDP pans and trays can go from freezer to oven or oven to freezer and allow pizza or other foods to be shock frozen. The pans can be used in gas and electric ovens, and, unlike metal pans, in microwave ovens.

Vectra LCP can be injection molded to form any size or shape baking tray, cake tin, and bread and muffin pan for standard and seasonal breads, pastry and other baked goods. These thin-walled LCP pans weigh 30 per cent less than comparable coated and uncoated metal pans, yet withstand the rigours of industrial and in-store baking facilities to give an extended service life.
