Mechem is an expert in PTFE coating and mainly uses Xylan products from Whitford.
Xylan coatings provide tailored properties to functioning surfaces. These coatings have a wide range of properties such as:
. low friction
. wear resistance
. heat resistance
. nonstick and high release properties
The polymer component also provides it with the additional anti-corrosion property.
PTFE coatings solve the problems created when the ideal material for use in engineering construction has the wrong surface properties.
Parts made from materials with optimum strength, weight and cost may corrode, seize or adhere. PTFE coatings provide the working surface, tailored to the application.
Xylan coatings can be made in many colours to match their surroundings, for colour coding, or to provide functional surfaces.
