Xylar 2®

Twice the protection power

Almost twice as hard as the best organics, Xylar 2 is an inorganic ceramic-metallic coating that sacrificially protects metals from corrosive salt environments and high temperature oxidation.   

Originally designed for aircraft and aerospace applications, Xylar 2 is a second-generation cermet, which provides a hard barrier coating that breaks the electrical path between dissimilar metal parts. 

Protection against water in all forms

Manufactured by Whitford® Corporation, this porous ceramic dry-film lubricant is the “cornerstone” on which to build a tough barrier coating system.  Xylar 2’s thin-film bonding agent delivers extensive salt fog protection, good wear characteristics, and high temperature stability of up to 1200°F, protecting metal from oxidation due to water in all forms.
