Our Core Products
Xylan is designed for use on various types of OEM components and fasteners. Most Xylan coatings contain PTFE or other types of lubricants and are applied in thin films. This coating provides lubrication and controlled friction, wear resistance, heat resistance, nonstick and release properties and can also protect from corrosion.
This type of coating benefits from remarkable adhesion to a variety of substrates including steel aluminum, copper, stainless steel, brass, titanium. Typical applications include actuators, bearings, hinge pins, piston casings, compressors, fasteners, valve springs, sealing rings & valves.
It is cheaper to coat components in Xylan than to use stainless steel, by up to 50%.
It’s tough. It looks great. And it lasts a long, long time. Powder coating is a high quality finish that’s found on thousands of products you come in contact with each day. It makes products durable, attractive and extremely scratch-resistant too.How does it work? Powder coating is a dry finishing process. Finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the products to be coated. The result: a sleek, strong, high-quality finish.
The powder coating process itself offers another advantage – it is environmentally friendly and virtually pollution-free! Unlike liquid paint, no solvents are used in powder coating, so only negligible amounts of VOC’s are released into the air. In addition, unused or over-sprayed powder can be recovered, so any waste is minimal and can be disposed of easily and safely. Powder coating is the fastest growing finishing technology in the UK representing over 30% of all industrial finishing applications. Powder coating is the stronger, tougher, better choice
Thermally cured solvent based epoxy system that allows the coating to repel water and other process fluids. It has outstanding chemical, corrosion resistance as well as being durable, flexible and is extremely tough making it ideal as a primer when used under solid film lubricants e.g. Ever-Slik 1301.
The 1201 is available in black or primer red and is applied by conventional spraying methods with a dry film thickness of 5 – 7 um
Everslik 1301 is a specially bonded solid film lubricant especially formulated for the heavy-duty industrial market. It provides good lubricity and corrosion resistance and prevents galling and seizing. It has found great acceptance in the petrochemical industry especially on threaded components e.g. actuator stems, valves, pumps, clamps and stab plates.
Application can be by conventional spray methods or dip spinning resulting in a single coat between 8 – 25 um.
Fusion Bonded Epoxy coating, which is commonly referred to as FBE coating. In chemistry, epoxy or polyepoxide is a thermosetting epoxide polymer that cures when mixed with a catalyst agent or hardener. Most common epoxy resins are produced from a reaction between epichlorohydrin and bisphenol-A based powder coating.
FBE coating is a type of dry coating, which is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form.
This type of coating is widely used by LJF Powder Coating to protect client oil/gas pipelines and associated components and has an extensive track record in this field.
Although Powder Coating in suitable for most applications, we also have wet painting facilities for certain specifications and environments.
There is a vast array of paint systems available and there application will depend on the use, environment and required life span of the product, this range of options expands every year as new paints are developed.
