Coatings of Xylan offer many benefits for
offshore service. These include resistance to corrosion and chemical
attack, superb subsea visibility, lower maintenance costs and less
Xylan coatings have been the first choice of many engineers in the
offshore industry for more than 30 years. You'll find Xylan hard at
work above and below the sea in the Hibernian Peninsula, Gulf of
Mexico, Arabian Sea, South China Sea, North Sea, West Africa's
deepwater frontier - wherever the offshore industry faces severe
conditions that demand the finest performance from protective
XYLAN 1010: Dry-film
lubricant for any wear surface to reduce friction,
prevent scoring and galling, and
provide secondary lubrication in the event of failure
of the primary (conventional) lubricant. In addition
to its low co-efficient of friction (0.04-1 .00), Xylan
1010l-as good release properties. good chemical and
abrasion resistance, and operates at temperatures up to
XYLAN 1014: Similar to Xylan 101 0, but with
significantly more bonding resin relative to its content
of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) lubricant. This
provides a finish that is harder, more
abrasion-resistant, glossier and less porous. Friction
values remain low and predictable.
XYLAN 1052: Dry-film lubricant formulated with
PTFE and MoS2 for high-pressure, low-speed
wear applications. Its unique chemistry provides
dependable, bonded lubrication for bearing surfaces
subjected to extreme pressures of up to 10,500 kg/cm2
(150,000 psi). Xylan 1052 operates at temperatures up to
XYLAN 1070: Highly corrosion-resistant,
low-friction coating designed [o reduce make-up and
breakout torque. even after prolonged exposure to
Corrosive environments. Xylan 1070 also offers good wear
and abrasion resistance.
XYLAN 1212: Waterborne thin-film barrier coating
with excellent corrosion resistance. ideal where
tolerance is critical and lubrication unnecessary.
XYLAN 1213: Waterborne, dry-film lubricant
designed for high-pressure/low-speed applications. When
combined with Xylan 12lp offers good corrosion and
Xylan 1270 (1400): Alternative to Xylan 1070 (1424\. but
with less lubrication. For fasteners where reduced
breakout torque is not necessary.
XYLAN 1311: Similar to Xylan 1331 with less PTFE.
Use when abrasion resistance is more important than
lubrication and/or non wetting properties.
XYLAN 1331: Dry-film
lubricant with PPS and PTFE for outstanding
wear/abrasion resistance. This resin-bonded coating has
excellent corrosion and chemical resistance and is
virtually unaffected by any solvents up to 205oC
Waterborne. highly corrosion resistant, dry-film
lubricant designed for use on any mating surface
requiring lubrication. Xylan 1424 reduces make-up and
break-out torque and also offers excellent chemical and
abrasion resistance. Similar to Xylan 1070.
Waterborne, dry-film lubricant formulated with PTFE and
MoS2 specifically for high pressure, low-speed wear
applications. Its unique chemistry provides dependable,
for bearing surface subjected to extreme pressures of up
to 10,500 kg/cm2 (150,000 psi). Xylan 1425 operates well
in harsh chemical environments and at temperatures up to 400oF
(3750F). Similar to Xylan 1052.
Waterborne, highly corrosion-resistant, low-friction
coating designed to reduce makeup and break-out torque,
even after prolonged exposure to corrosive environments.
Xylan 1427 also offers excellent chemical, wear and
XYLAN 1514: UV-resistant, dry-film lubricant with
excellent low friction. Xylan 1514 is designed for
highly visible, decorative applications where stain
resistance and easy-clean properties are required. This
coating also offers some corrosion and abrasion
The waterworks industry, like many industries these days, faces a
disturbing increase in raw material costs. That's why nobody in the
waterworks industry wants to pay the steep (and still climbing)
price for fasteners made of stainless steel.
Further, stainless steel has less yield strength than alloy steel,
so a Xylan-coated fastener actually has greater yield strength than
its stainless counterpart.
Nevertheless, some do pay the higher cost, generally because nobody
wants to put a far cheaper ductile-iron fastener in wet, hot soil,
only to encounter rapid corrosion and the problems that causes. But
there is good news - because now there is a way to reduce the
