Food-Contact Coatings

Xylan 100 series coatings are said to combine high-temperature capability (up to 500°F); good resistance to impact, abrasion, scratching and wear; good chemical and hydrolysis resistance and a low coefficient of friction with FDA approval for food-contact applications.

Xylan 100 series coatings are said to combine high-temperature capability (up to 500°F); good resistance to impact, abrasion, scratching and wear; good chemical and hydrolysis resistance and a low coefficient of friction with FDA approval for food-contact applications. The line consists of four products. Xylan 1110 is  general-purpose coating; 114 is a harder, more abrasion-resistant material; 1152 is formulated to have increased load-bearing capability while maintaining a low coefficient of friction; and 1170 provides higher corrosion resistance than the pother materials. All are FDA-compliant except 1152, and all use polyetheretherketone (PEEK) thermoplastic polymer to achieve their properties.
