Xylan®

Thin Xylan ® coating film solution for surface improvement

Xylan® coatings solve the problems created when the ideal material for use in engineering construction has the wrong surface properties. Applied as a thin film, Xylan is exceptionally capable of adhesion to surfaces that do not readily accept other PTFE coatings.

Xylan® coatings provide lubrication and controlled friction, wear resistance, heat resistance, nonstick and release properties, and, at the same time, can also protect from corrosion.

Xylan® 5110
A waterborne, low-friction, dip-spin coating for applications where a particularly wide operating temperature range is required — up to 260°C (500°F). Xylan® 5110 is free of all restricted heavy metals, and is available in a range of colors (excluding light shades). Typical applications include screws and threaded fasteners.

Xylan® 5164
A solvent-borne, low-friction, dip-spin coating with superior UV resistance. This coating is often used to provide product identification as it is available in a wide range of colors, including white. Xylan® 5164 is free of all restricted heavy metals. Typical applications include wood screws and threaded fasteners.

Xylan® 5230
A solvent-borne, controlled-friction dip-spin coating that has been designed particularly for the automotive industry. It offers controlled torque tension coupled with extremely good corrosion resistance and can withstand 240 hours salt-spray when applied over a phosphate pretreatment. This coating also has good resistance to all automotive fuels, lubricants and fluids. Xylan® 5230 resists chipping and flaking and is easy to apply. It is free of all restricted heavy metals and is specified by a number of automotive companies.

Xylan® 5250
A solvent-borne dip-spin coating with extremely good corrosion resistance and good UV resistance. It is ideal for use in the roofing and appliance industries where general weathering resistance is required, and is available in a range of colors. Typical applications include roofing fasteners, screws, stampings, and end-caps.

Xylan® 5270
A solvent-borne dip-spin coating with excellent corrosion resistance. Similar to Xylan® 5230, but without the low-friction properties. Xylan® 5270 is available in a range of colors, including white.

Xylan® 5420
A waterborne, PTFE-containing dip-spin coating with excellent corrosion resistance. This coating can offer low friction and abrasion resistance properties similar to Xylan® 5230, but also has improved corrosion resistance, as well as being more environmentally friendly. Xylan® 5420 is low in VOCs and is free of all restricted heavy metals. Great for use on small fasteners and hardware.

Xylan® 5430
A new generation of protective coatings for small fasteners and hardware. Similar to Xylan® 5420 (low VOCs), but with improved UV protection.

Xylan® 5611
A solvent-borne, zinc-rich coating that gives sacrificial anodic protection against corrosion. Xylan® 5611 offers excellent corrosion and abrasion resistance. It is available in a silver-grey color, and can also be used as a primer for other Xylan® coatings. Xylan® 5611 is widely used in the roofing and appliance industries for the bulk application of items such as threaded fasteners, screws, stampings, and end-caps.
