Industrial Coatings: What Is Xylan?
Xylan coatings belong to a family of fluoropolymer hybrid coatings. First and foremost, Xylan coatings are dry-film lubricants. However, they have some other desirable properties that make it one of the best fastener coatings for the oil and gas industry. Known as extreme industrial performance coatings, Xylan coatings are used in a wide range of sectors such as:
- Oil and gas
- Rubber manufacturing
Oil And Gas Applications
Supplying the oil and gas industry with industrial Xylan coatings is something that we are very proud of here at East Midland Coatings. Due to the nature of the industry, the oil and gas sector can face many challenges. One challenge is in regards to the components being exposed to salt water and chemical corrosion.
Parts in use in such sectors are often required to withstand heavy loads at high temperatures. Despite the parts being made of strong materials, exposure to certain chemicals and liquids can weaken the parts. As a result, the overall durability (and therefore safety) of the component can be compromised.
So, how do you overcome the above hurdle?
Components such as fasteners, nuts, and bolts are in use to hold everything together. With this in mind their condition and durability must be at an optimum or else they can jeopardise the safety of your operations. Wet environments when oxidation can occur may lead to rust. Salt in the water and fog can also cause corrosion for offshore applications.
Consequently, a coating of Xylan can help to prevent the corrosion of these components which can occur during ordinary wear and tear and exposure to the conditions mentioned above.
Xylan is one of the best industrial fastener coatings for chemical applications. Exposure to chemicals can impact the performance of the metal and weaken the component. Xylan can provide the components with a protective coating which ensures that they are not affected by the exposure to chemicals.
Oil And Gas Components
Typical oil and gas components that benefit from a Xylan protective coating include:
- Stud Bolts
Whether it’s for anti-corrosion, chemical resistance, galvanic corrosion, colour coding, or reducing make-up torque, our coatings can provide an unrivalled performance.
