Xylan coatings provide excellent adhesion to a variety of of substrates while requiring a minimum of surface preparation. Final product quality demands careful surface prepartation. The part must be free of all contaminants (oil, grease, detergent, blast media, buffing compound, etc.). American
Plating’s quality control will assure proper adhesion of the coating material to the substrate.
Most applications require only a solvent wipe or vapor degreasing of the substrate to remove surface contaminets. Some applications may require additional surface preparation to enhance adhesion, e.g. grit blasting with aluminum oxide.
Xylan coatings are applied using the latest spray techniques and spray gun apparatus associated with the application of fluoropolymer coatings will provide a uniform film. Airless and
electrostatic units are also used depending on the specifications of the customer.
Following application, the coating material must be bonded to the substrate. Coated parts may be cured immediately or be accumulated for a batch oven.
