Substrates that can be coated with Xylan®
Xylan can be applied to nearly any surface including aluminum, chrome- and nickel-bearing alloys, copper, steel and titanium; plastics including epoxy, Nylon, PEEK and polyester; elastomeric parts including natural rubber and silicones; glass, ceramics, and industrial textiles.
AIC offers complete pre-treatment in-house, which is especially important for Xylan coating applications. Xylan can adhere to almost any substrate, but some need to be coated within hours of pretreatment for the coating to adhere durably.
