Corrosion Resistance

Corrosion is the natural enemy of metal. Technically, it is the relentless reaction between metal and its environment (chemical, biological and electrochemical). There are four categories of corrosive agents, all of which exist in nature: oxidants, acidic media, salts and alkalies.


The high cost of corrosive damage is why Whitford has developed a series of coatings for multiple industries. Xylan coatings, particularly the formulations made with PTFE, offer a simple solution to the problem. If corrosion is the dominant problem, choose a coating that offers the best protection from the specific environment. If the problem is a combination of corrosion and wear, a good choice would be a coating which performs well in the presence of corrosive elements and has a low K value (wear rate).
