What is a high-performance coating?

High-performance fluoropolymer coatings are low-friction, dry-lubricant materials that achieve remarkable synergy by combining the capabilities of two types of engineering plastics.

Fluoropolymers, with the lowest known coefficient of friction of any known solid, are combined with high-temperature organic polymers to provide unique and highly versatile combinations of properties.

These tough lubricating coatings can operate successfully at temperature extremes which, at the low end, would render ordinary fluid lubricants too high in viscosity and, at the high end, char them to ash.

From the beginning, Whitford developed matrix coatings for industrial applications. As these applications have grown and become more focused, Xylan coatings have been adjusted to meet the specific demands of each. As a result, Xylan became the largest, most complete line of fluoropolymer coatings in the world
