Dry Film Lubrication Coating
Also Known as Fluoropolymer, Xylan, or PTFE Coating
When looking for a high-performance coating that offers exceptional temperature, chemical and friction resistance as well as lubrication, our fluoropolymer and dry film lubricant coatings are often the perfect solution.
Fluoropolymer coating is the generic term for Xylan or PTFE coating. Fluoropolymer coating can be applied as a liquid spray or as a powder coating. Dry film lubricant coatings typically consists of graphite, Molybdenum disulfide, inorganic aluminum silicate and ceramic metallic compounds. These are usually applied as liquids and can be sprayed or brushed.
Fluoropolymer coating is the generic term for what is typically referred to as Xylan coating or PTFE coating. Fluoropolymer coating can be applied as a liquid spray or a powder coating.
Fluoropolymer coating is useful in a wide variety of applications including:
PTFE coating is perfect in medical applications since it is resistant to the fluids in the human body and it is FDA approved for use on items that come in contact with the human body. It is the perfect coating for medical instruments that are used to perform a variety of diagnostic or exploratory tests.
High Tech Tools
Tools that require extreme temperature and chemical resistance are perfect candidates for PTFE coating that is applied in a thin paint-like layer. This fluoropolymer coating is also corrosion resistant, making it perfect for tools that will be used in a variety of environmental conditions.
The cookware industry has long used fluoropolymer coating to coat pans and bakeware enabling food to slide off easily and resist high temperatures.
Food Processing Plants
Since fluoropolymer coating (also referred to as Xylan coating or PTFE coating) is an FDA food grade compliant coating, it is particularly useful in food processing plants to coat food chutes, tubing and other parts.
Fasteners and Machined Surfaces
Dry film lubricant coatings are well adapted for use in applications that have tight tolerances but also require corrosion resistance and/or lubricity. This typically includes fasteners and machined surfaces that are fixed together. There are many proprietary formulations available that have been tailored to suite very demanding end use applications for a wide variety of industrial needs including: aircraft industry, automotive and diesel truck industry, oil well industry, and high pressure/temperature hydraulic industry.
Precision Coatings has the equipment and expertise to apply fluoropolymer coatings including Xylan coating and PTFE coating in a variety of thicknesses to meet the specifications for your particular application.
