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.

Why Rilsan Is Sustainable and Renewable

Rilsan is a tough nylon polyamide typically used to coat metals. This dry, powder-based coating is known for its chemical and abrasion resistance. For all of its toughness when used to coat screws, wires, and pipes, this substance comes from a simple tropical plant. In today’s blog, Coating Systems explains how Rilsan is a sustainable and renewable polymer.   Rilsan and Castor Beans Castor beans from the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis) provide the main substance for Rilsan. This plant grows in tropical areas worldwide, although it is originally from the southern Mediterranean region and eastern Africa. Castor oil plants grow readily and often become an invasive…
