Xylan Coatings

Xylan® Coatings are a family of fluoropolymer coatings designed for use on various types of OEM components and fasteners, including xylan coated bolts to prevent corrosion. Most Xylan® coatings contain PTFE or other types of lubricants and are applied in thin films. Xylan coating is a dry film lubricant.

Xylan Coating provides:

  • lubrication and controlled friction
  • wear resistance
  • heat resistance
  • nonstick and release properties
  • can also protect from corrosion

Solving problems with Xylan

Xylan® Coatings solve the problems created when the ideal material for use in engineering construction has the wrong surface properties. Parts made from materials with the optimum strength, weight and cost may corrode, seize or gall. Xylan® coatings provide a working surface, tailored to the application. Additionally using xylan coatings allows for reduced breakout torques due to its anti-corrosion and low-friction properties.
