How Xylan Coating Protects Nuts and Bolts From Wear

Xylan is an extremely popular coating for waterborne industrial applications. Think offshore oil and gas exploration, as well as medical equipment and chemical processing plants that frequently work at extreme temperatures with fluid-based systems. Coating Systems explains how Xylan coating protects nuts and bolts in industrial settings. Prevents Corrosion Nuts and bolts hold everything together. If they break, your machinery breaks down and causes major disruptions in your operations. Xylan helps prevent corrosion of metal nuts and bolts due to ordinary wear and tear. This is particularly true in wet environments when water or chemicals may oxidize metals to create rust. It’s not just the water that…

Coating Systems Discusses the Top Uses for Teflon Coating

Teflon is one of the most common types of coatings known to humankind. Invented at the outset of World War II, this coating resists heat while creating a non-stick surface that lets water, food, and other materials slide on the surface easily. Coating Systems discusses the top uses for Teflon coating, also known as PTFE.  Cookware Many cookware manufacturers tout Teflon’s benefits for easy cleaning. That’s because food, grease, and oil don’t stick to Teflon pans. Chances are good your griddle, skillet, or saucepans have this type of coating on them. Coating Systems understands why Teflon is so popular: it has high heat resistance and a very…

Coating Systems Explains the Advantages of Plastisol Coating

Plastisol coating works by combining PVC in a plasticizer to make it into a thick, pliable liquid. We heat the item to be dipped in plastisol ahead of curing. Once the piece cures, the coating is both sturdy and somewhat flexible. Coating Systems explains the advantages of plastisol coating for your products.   Dampens Vibrations Plastisol bonds to various types of metals. It dampens vibrations, such as those you might find in manufacturing equipment or steering mechanisms. Fewer vibrations enhance worker safety and well-being, reduce noise pollution, and help you maintain better control of your industrial machinery. Coating Systems can dip your steering wheels, turning mechanisms, and…

Advantages of Powder Coating for Busbars

Busbars are vital yet overlooked components of an electrical system. These items, typically made of copper, brass, or aluminum, allow wires and electrical connections to congregate along a single axis for convenience. Busbars are generally uninsulated, meaning if anyone touches a busbar they run the risk of electric shock or even electrocution. Coating Systems explains the advantages of powder coating as insulation for busbars in today’s blog. Maintains Conductivity of Electrical Components Powder coating doesn’t interfere with the conductivity of electrical components, much like any other insulating material. Powders are even better than rubber or plastic because they are form-fitting and don’t take up a lot of…
