Quality Approved Coater SEAL

Whitford recognizes the importance of a properly engineered and applied coating system. A “Quality Approved Coater” program was established to provide industry competent sources to apply their products. Crest Coating is a charter member in this distinguished network.

Whitford Xylan® coatings have a broad range of properties which make them ideal for a variety of applications. Whitford Xylan® coatings differ from traditional fluoropolymer coatings in one very important aspect … they are composite materials. Lubricants with the lowest-known coefficient of friction are combined with the newest high temperature resistant organic polymers to create Whitford Xylan® coatings.

Specifications

Coefficient of Friction

 

0.02 to 0.20

Use Temperature Range

-420ºF to 550ºF (-250ºC to 285ºC)

Pre-Treatment Process

Optimum adhesion is obtained by roughening the surface before applying the coating. Except where specifically mentioned, most Xylan® industrial coatings require a sandblast and primer coat.

Types of Whitford Xylan® Coatings

1000 Series

Premium dry-film lubricant, with widely varying properties; hard, heat stable, excellent broadband corrosion barrier; flexible cure schedule; can be formulated to have good release; electrical conductivity; fair UV stability. Applied by spraying. Typical applications include; sliding mechanisms, bearings, large fasteners, power screws, valves, machine parts, pistons.

1400 Series

Excellent chemical resistance, particularly to bases. Good UV stability. Applied by spraying. Typical applications include; large fasteners, automotive components.

1500 Series

Xylan 1500 coatings are decorative enamels with low-friction properties and stain resistance which can operate at elevated temperatures. Unlike many fluoropolymer finishes, coatings in this series may be produced in virtually any color.

8000 Series

Similar characteristics as the 1000 Series but utilizes materials approved by the FDA for food use. Typical applications include; warming plates, faucet valves, heating elements, ice makers, pans,toasters.

PFA Plus

Excellent chemical and temperature resistance as well as low friction properties. Applied by spraying. Typical applications include: plastic and urethane molds, bakery products, chemical storage tanks.
