Licco offers three decades of expertise in the application of chemical resistant coatings to fasteners and industrial equipment in a 3500 square meter facility staffed around the clock for instant response to rush projects.
Xylan® Coatings are a family of fluoropolymer coatings designed for use on various types of OEM components and fasteners to prevent corrosion and increase the life of the product. Most Xylan® coatings contain PTFE or other types of lubricants and are applied in thin films. Scroll down to see the Xylan® coatings we offer and their individual uses.
Teflon® industrial coatings spray on like paint and bake to a tough, inert finish. By combining heat resistance with almost total chemical inertness, excellent dielectric stability and a low coefficient of friction, Teflon® industrial coatings offer a balance of properties.
PTFE coatings, or Polytetrafluoroethylene are superior non-stick fluoropolymer coatings with a very durable thin film coating. These products have the highest operating temperature of any fluoropolymer and have an extremely low coefficient of friction, good abrasion resistance and chemical resistance.
Phosphate coatings are a crystalline conversion coating for steel and other metals that is formed on a ferrous metal substrate. The process of Phosphate coating is employed for the purpose of pretreatment prior to coating or painting, increasing corrosion protection and improving friction properties of sliding components. In other instances, phosphate coatings are applied to threaded parts and top coated with oil (P&O) to add anti-galling and rust inhibiting characteristics.
Like FEP, PFA (Perfluoroalkoxy) coatings melt and flow during baking to provide non-porous films and increased permeation resistance.
Molybdenum Disulfide Coatings (MoS2 coatings), also known as Moly Coatings are commonly used in applications where load carrying capacity, operating pressure and coefficient of friction are primary concerns. This coating provides effective lubrication in a wide range of loads, in many cases exceeding 250,000 psi. Moly coatings lubricate sacrificially by transferring lubricant between the two mating surfaces, which helps to reduce wear and coefficient of friction. Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) coatings are a dry film lubricant.
PVDF coating (polyvinylidene fluoride) or Kynar® coating is a pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer that is non-reactive and possesses multiple coating benefits. Kynar® coating is a chemical resistant, thick film barrier coating primarily used on chemical processing equipment due to it’s low weight and low thermal conductivity.
Inorganic Zinc anti rust spray coatings when applied to blasted steel provide excellent corrosion protection, weathering protection, and very good resistance to salt water and resistance to solvents. Inorganic zinc coatings provide excellent anti-rust corrosion protection when used in chemical plants, refineries, and coastal or offshore installations.
Fluoropolymer coatings are blends of high performance resins and fluoropolymer lubricants. These coatings contain a superior dry film lubricant. The final product produces a smooth, hard, slick coating that provides excellent corrosion and chemical resistance.
Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene nonstick coatings melt and flow during baking to provide smooth non-porous films with excellent abrasion resistance. Because the coating is non-porous its chemical resistance is superb. FEP coatings are extremely non-wetting and have a very low coefficient of friction.
EthyleneTriFluoroEthylene has very similar chemical resistant properties to ECTFE though is thinner and not quite so robust.
Some of the most important characteristics of these coatings are the high ware and corrosion resistance, excellent uniformity, great range of thicknesses, excellent mechanical and physical properties, good solder ability and superficial lubrication.
|ECTFE / Halar® Coatings||
Halar® ECTFE coating is a melt-processable fluoropolymer with a 1:1 alternating copolymer structure of ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethylene. As part of the fluoropolymer family, Halar® coatings or ECTFE coatings have a unique combination of properties including excellent chemical resistance, good electrical properties, a broad-use temperature range, outstanding abrasion resistance, and excellent impact strength. Additionally, PVDF (also known as Kynar®) is part of the fluoropolymer family offering similar properties to ECTFE.
Ceramic Epoxy coating is a unique abrasion resistant coating that protects by binding ceramic particles to a resin system, thus creating an encapsulating ceramic shell. Each ceramic particle is resin coated and becomes tightly packed in the cured film.
