Xylan Coating Advantages and Applications

Xylan Coated Bolts

Xylan is the brand name of a family of fluoropolymer coatings designed to enhance the properties of a variety of products from machined components and fasteners to piping, medical instruments, and even cookware.

Xylan coatings are made from wear-resistant composites of fluoropolymers such as PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), PFA (Perfluoroalkoxy alkane), and FEP (Fluorinated ethylene propylene), along with reinforcing binder resins. They can be used in environments with temperatures up to and over 550 F. 

If you’re a manufacturer looking to improve your product line, you might be wondering if Xylan coatings are a good fit for you. That’s why we’ve dedicated this post to exploring the benefits and applications of Xylan coatings.

Product designers and manufacturers seeking coating solutions that are exceptionally temperature, chemical, and friction-resistant have discovered fluoropolymer coating to be ideal. While the name of this impressive coating may sound foreign, know that it goes by several other common names like PTFE, which stands for Polytetrafluoroethylene – (you can see why it’s abbreviated)! This material has a long history in everyday American life primarily as a cookware coating.

To understand all of the top advantages of PTFE coatings, it is helpful to examine a few of the primary ways they are typically employed. Some are very familiar, like in the pots and pans that you use to prepare meals at home. A wide variety of other unique applications exist, as well, thanks to PTFE’s long list of positive qualities. While PTFE is primarily a metal (steel, alloys, brass, aluminum, etc.) coating, it can be applied to certain plastics and other substances if the surface of that substance is first abraded (made rough in texture) to promote bonding. Whether your priority is food safety, great insulating capability, or general human health, a Fluoropolymer coating could be just what you’ve been searching for to solve your production coating challenges no matter your industry or what you need to coat.
