Xylan® is a well-known industrial coating that is produced by Whitford. And Buckster’s Xylan Coating Ltd is one of the suppliers of Xylan®. Known for its chemical and anti-corrosion properties around Edmonton and elsewhere, it is an ideal product that makes industrial parts and equipment more durable. Xylan® is a fluoropolymer.
A fluoropolymer, a chemical compound, has strong carbon-fluoride bonds. The electrically negative fluorine in the fluoropolymer makes it hard for products to bond with it easily. This non-stick property is useful in manufacturing utensils. Fluoropolymers are highly resistant to acids, bases, and solvents, which gives it its strength.
Over 300 different grades of Xylan® can be obtained when additives like PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) or MSO3 are added in varying amounts to improve the performance of the material. A material with these additives is known as a dry film lubricant or DLF material. It is called so because of the low surface coefficient of friction that makes it dry to touch.

The grade can also produce coatings of different colours like whites, creams, and oranges.
