Nylon coating: durable protective coatings

Siltech Industries is possibly the only company in New Zealand applying Rilsan® Nylon 11 commercially.

Rilsan® Nylon 11 is an exceptionally hardwearing nylon coating that looks like powder coating, but is actually a high molecular weight thermoplastic polymer, which is melted on. Nylon works at moderate temperatures (70°C).

Benefits of applying a nylon coating:

  • Protection. Nylon coatings provide excellent protective coatings against corrosion, UV, ozone, cathodic disbonding, salt spray, chemicals and a range of solvents and hydrocarbons.
  • Long service life. Nylon coatings are long lasting and have good weather resistance.
  • Abrasion resistance. Nylon coatings also have excellent abrasion resistance and low moisture absorption.
  • Impact resistance. Good impact resistance, providing 13 times more resistance than PVC; 50 times more resistance than polyethelene; and 250 times more resistance than oven-cured paint.
  • Hygienic. Rilsan® Nylon 11 is certifiable in many countries that require conformity to drinking water regulations.

Examples of nylon coating usage:

  • Industries served: water, manufacturing; scientific; food processing.
  • Examples of nylon coated products: water reticulation equipment; impellors and housings on pumps; conveyor flights.
