Product of the Month

Fluoro-Coat X550

FLUORON, INC., Elkton, MD, says its Fluoro-Coat X-550 is made with PTFE resin and has as good a release as other coatings made with Dupont TeflonĀ® and heat-shrinkable tubing products.

Fluoro-Coat X-550 is sprayed on while the rotating dryer then steam is turned into the dryer and heats it to maximum temperature. It requires a minimum of 250 F to harden the coating.

X-550 can be field-applied to the dryer and cured on site in less time than conventional dryer sleeves made with Teflon FEP.

Fluoro-Coat X-550 advantages include: It is ideal for dryers; it is less expensive than dryer covers; it withstands pike pole damage; it is field-applied and cured; saves costly downtime; not subject to build-up; continuous service at 550 F; offers an alternative to doctoring.
