Xylan is the trade name for a group of coatings made up of the fluoropolymers polytetrafluoroethylene, perfluoroalkoxy polymer, and fluorinated ethylene propylene.
This particular coating is inert to virtually all chemicals and is considered the most slippery material in existence. The coefficient of static and dynamic friction is nearly equal to the level of wet ice on wet ice.
Xylan protects the useful life of metal parts, and protects them from saltwater corrosion and damage from extreme friction. A thin Xylan film applied to a part protects it to 150,000-psi tensile strength, and can prevent galling and seizing that would occur with lesser coatings. There are 13 Xylan products that are well-suited for use in the oil and gas industry. Some parts can be protected sufficiently with just a single coating of Xylan. Other parts may require that Xylan be used in addition to a primer, mid-coat, and/or top coat to achieve optimal protection.
By one leading industry group estimate, corrosion damage costs the oil and gas production industry more than $1.37 billion a year. Most of the damage is to surface pipelines and production facilities and equipment. BRIGHT offers an array of solutions to keep your business up and running, and to save you money on replacement costs and addressing problems resulting from equipment failure.

Molybdenum Disulfide Coatings (MoS2 coatings), also known as Moly Coatings are commonly used in applications where load carrying capacity, operating pressure and coefficient of friction are primary concerns. This coating provides effective lubrication in a wide range of loads, in many cases exceeding 250,000 psi. Moly coatings lubricate sacrificially by transferring lubricant between the two mating surfaces, which helps to reduce wear and coefficient of friction. Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) coatings are a dry film lubricant.
BRIGHT provides application services of various Molybdenum Disulfide Coatings.
We use coatings like Everslik, Everlube coatings from Everlube Products, Molykote by Dow Corning as well as coatings manufactured by PTI.
