Whitford Corporation is a manufacturer of one of the world’s largest line of fluoropolymer coatings. It owns 40 trademarks around the world and its products are available in as many countries. Whitford’s story began in 1969 when the founders created its first product—Xylan 1010—which remains one of the company’s most popular products today. The firm’s wide range of products serve the industrial, automotive, powder coatings, houseware and electrical component markets. Whitford operates nine manufacturing facilities worldwide in the U.S., the UK, Brazil, India, China, Singapore and Italy. Most recently opened its factory in Bangalore, one of India’s fastest-growing and most dynamic cities. On the new technology front, Whitford has broken new ground with its recently launched Xylan HB, which the company says answers the problem of achieving good film integrity at film thicknesses over 25 microns, or one milliliter.
