High-Temperature: Ranges above 260°C/500°F
Few fluid lubricants are recommended for use at cryogenic temperatures (most become solid) or above 205°C/400°F (they oxidize rapidly). Most Xylan dry-lubricant coatings, however, operate comfortably at both extremes. They retain their hardness at high temperatures because most binders for these coatings are thermoset engineered polymers. Xylan 1000 Series coatings also operate effectively at extremely low temperatures (down to -250°C/-420°F).
For temperatures above 260°C/500°F, Whitford offers a line of Xylan industrial coatings that are designed to withstand high-heat service temperature exposure up to 550°C/1000°F. These coatings provide excellent thermal shock, good corrosion and oxidation resistance.
Note: For temperatures below 260°C/500°F, see Whitford's standard Xylan coatings
