Master Guide to Halar®, Xylan® & Teflon™ Industrial Coatings

Industrial coatings are a protective layer that protects surfaces from damage often caused by environmental factors such as heat, corrosion, abrasion, and chemical exposure. These coatings are used in various industries, including food processing, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, and aerospace. Among the most popular types of industrial coatings are Halar®, Xylan®, and Teflon™.

Halar® Industrial Coating

Halar® industrial coating is a fluoropolymer coating made from ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE). It is a thermoplastic coating applied to various surfaces using a spray or fluidized bed coating method. It is available in black, green, and gray colors and a glossy finish.

Properties of Halar® Industrial Coating

The following are the properties of Halar® industrial coating:

  • Chemical Resistance

    With its excellent chemical resistance, Halar® industrial coating can withstand various acids, bases, and solvents. It can also resist most organic and inorganic chemicals, including strong acids, alkalis, and oxidizing agents. Furthermore, its resistance to UV radiation makes it an ideal choice for outdoor applications.

  • Abrasion Resistance

    Halar® industrial coating is highly resistant to wear and tear, making it suitable for applications where surfaces are exposed to abrasion, impact, and scratches.

  • Thermal Resistance

    For applications where surfaces are exposed to extreme heat, Halar® industrial coating is the ideal solution. It can withstand up to 300 °F (150 °C) without losing its properties.

  • Non-Stick Surface

    Halar® industrial coating has non-stick properties, making it ideal for applications where products must slide or move smoothly over the surface.

How Is Halar® Industrial Coating Applied?

Halar® industrial coating is typically applied using a spray or fluidized bed coating method. The surface to be coated is cleaned, prepared, and preheated before the coating is applied. The coating is then cured by heating it to a specific temperature for a set period. This allows it to bond to the surface and form a durable coating.

Some of the industries that commonly use Halar® industrial coating are the following:

  • Chemical processing
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Aerospace
  • Semiconductor

Xylan® Industrial Coatings

Xylan® industrial coatings are a type of fluoropolymer coating that is designed to provide superior protection to metal surfaces. They are known for their exceptional durability and can help extend the life of equipment and machinery.

How Is Xylan® Industrial Coating Applied?

Once the surface is properly prepped, the Xylan® coatings are applied using specialized equipment to achieve a precise and even coating thickness. After applying the coating, it is cured at high temperatures to ensure proper adhesion and durability.

Xylan® coatings are used in a range of industries, including the following:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Oil and gas
  • Food processing
  • Chemical Processing
  • Pharmaceutical

Teflon™ Industrial Coatings

Teflon™ industrial coatings are applied to metal substrates such as aluminum, steel, brass, and stainless steel, and non-metallic substrates like glass and some plastics. To optimize adhesion, the substrate surface is roughened before coating. After application, the coating is cured through thermal processing to create a durable, protective layer.

How Is Teflon™ Industrial Coating Applied?

The application of Teflon™ industrial coating varies depending on the product and industry. The most common methods include spray coating and electrostatic coating. Spray coating is ideal for large and complex surfaces and electrostatic coating for complex geometries and hard-to-reach areas.

Teflon™ industrial coatings are used by various industries to protect their products. Some of the industries that use Teflon™ industrial coatings include:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Chemical processing
  • Semiconductor
  • Food processing
  • Medical
