Those coatings have been engineered for extreme situations under great pressure, high temperature and abrasive environments.

Properties of Xylan ® coating

The properties of Xylan® coatings are achieved throughout the combination of organic polymers with dry film lubticants, obtaining plastic alloys with unique and super useful properties very versatile when used in extreme industrial environments. Its application can be either conventional or multi-layer.

The most remarkable properties are:

  • Low friction coefficient. CoF of 0.02
  • Wear resistance under pressure.
  • Chemical and corrosion resistance in most environments.
  • Weather resistance. Sun light, saline water and chemical products.
  • Ability to work under wide range of temperatures. Between -250ºC and 285ºC (-420°F and 550°F).
  • Flexible curing program.
  • Codification with a great range of colors.
  • High flexibility. It can be bent.
  • Good machinability: it can be milled.
  • Optimal adhesion to most materials such as metals, plastics, ceramic or wood.

Applications

The target for a Xylan® coating would be to reduce the friction, improve the wear resistance and adherence. Amongst many of the sectors when this is applied, we can highlight:

  • Cookware
  • Industrial bakery
  • Automotive
  • Oil & gas

Thanks to their fluoropolymers with PTFE, PFA and FEP it is ideal for applications metal on metal, offering great corrosion protection. The low friction this coating delivers will make of it a very interesting solution for those sectors, being for instance, a performance improvement for bearings.
