Depending upon the specific application conditions, the oven ramp-up or flash time should be extended to assure removal of all volatiles. Xylan HB is a good alternative to PFA powder. It has excellent release characteristics and, because of its ability to form thick films, it is ideal for applications with rough surfaces from commercial waffle irons to molds that are recycled repeatedly. Due to its ability to be applied as a thick film, Xylan HB offers extended wear characteristics, simply as a result of the added durability afforded by the thicker film. And all formulae are FDA-compliant. Fluoropolymers are high-performance plastic materials used primarily in performance-critical applications in defense-related industries and in automotive, aerospace, electronics, telecommunications, chemical, medical and many other industries. In spite of their diverse uses, the average consumer knows these coatings primarily as the “nonstick” part of a fry pan.
