Whitford is a fluoropolymer coatings manufacturer, providing PTFE particle dispersants and dry film lubricants to a wide range of industries, for a wide range of products. Fluoropolymer coatings are used extensively, in industries like construction, energy, automotive and aeronautic, textiles, and reprographics, for products like non stick cookware, ropes and cordage, metal components, and sealing systems—anywhere improved performance is needed for chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance.
A few of the problems we solve include:
Many industrial processes require high grade performance steel and other metals to perform in harsh chemical environments. The advent of chemically inert fluoropolymer coatings with high thermal and pressure performance allows metal, ceramics, glass, and other materials to have greater chemical resistance with a better overall coating and more even dispersal over intricate surfaces. This ensures longer life cycles for equipment components, and allows complex chemical industrial processes to continue with less interruption.
All metals, including stainless steel, are subject to corrosion. Everyone is familiar with rust, when metal is subjected to everyday environmental forces. Industries often have even more challenging environments, and their equipment must always perform at an optimum level. Corrosion resistance is one of the most important overall features a fluoropolymer coatings manufacturer must provide, and specific coatings are designed for corrosion resistance against each of the four types of corrosive agents: oxidants, acidic media, salts and alkalies. Whitford’s coatings ensure greater durability and preserved material integrity.
Component parts are subject to a wide variety of physical forces, and Whitford provides coatings with improved wear resistance for better performance and longer equipment life cycles. Proprietary coatings like Xylan and others are designed to resist the momentary welding of peaks, or asperities, when two metal components are mated in operation. Dry film lubricants were developed specifically for improving resistance to friction and wear and tear on metal gears, bearings, and any other metal component in high performance conditions.
Whitford is here to solve your problems. We are a fluoropolymer coatings manufacturer providing a wide variety of PTFE products specifically designed to help you improve the overall longevity, durability, and performance of your equipment.
