Xylan ® Coatings Review

Industrial Coating Types, Processes and Design
Xylan Coatings Services

Xylan is fluoropolmer coating which exhibits reduced friction, good wear resistant, high temperature thermal cycling resistance, high resistance to abrasion, low coefficient of resistance, as well, as corrosion resistance. Most Xylan coatings include teflon as a lubricant and may be applied in very thin layers or thickness.

Xylan is available in a wide range of colors, fillers, and organic polymers. Application can be very economical and is very resistant to high degrees of flexation or stress induced movement.

Materials which can be coated with Xylan:

  • Plastics
  • Elastomers
  • Glass
  • Ceramics
  • Fabrics
  • Composites
  • Ferrous Metals
  • Non-Ferrous Metal
  • Wood

Xylan coatings applications include: automotive, aerospace, industrial, appliances, piping, impellers, non-stick applications, fasteners and electronics.
