Xylan® Coating Services
Xylan® coatings is the flagship line of industrial coatings offered by Whitford Corporation. The Xylan brand identifies a vast line of coatings that offer many advanced coating properties such as non-stick, low-friction, dry-film lubrication, high temperature and wear-resistance, and chemical & corrosion resistance. The Whitford industrial family of coatings (Xylan, Eclipse, Dykor, Xylar, XylaMed, & Ultralon) are extreme performance coatings – utilized at high and low temperatures, in chemical & corrosive environments, and under heavy loads and high wear conditions.
Xylan coatings are first and foremost high-performance coatings formulated to provide unique and desirable properties by combining fluoropolymers, resin binders, and reinforcing agents into a complex matrix to form functional coatings that can be applied to a variety of parts. Typical substrates that are Xylan coated include all types of metals (steel, aluminum, stainless steel, hastelloy, titanium, bronze and copper alloys, etc.) in all shapes and sizes. The application process for Whitford Xylan coatings typically includes removing any surface contaminants, abrading (grit blasting or sanding), masking if required, application of the coating (conventional spray, electrostatic powder, or dip-spin) and thermal cure.
