JK SD
Description

JK SD is a specially formulated solvent-based, very-low-viscosity BN coating to allow dipping onto “blanks” to yield very thin layers that can accommodate the extreme stretching of superplastic forming operations. The uniform-sized BN particles give good adhesion and lubrication over the superplastic-forming and quick-plastic-forming (SPF/QPF) cycle. The consistency of JK SD allows its use for applying thin layers by air-spray as well as dipping.

Key Attributes
  • Provides lubrication over the entire SPF-QPF cycle
  • Flows with the metal
  • Permits easy removal/release after forming
  • Minimizes coating build-up on dies

This new easy-to-use finger-pump sprayer allows application of BN paint onto most any surface, substrate, crucible, or mold.

Key Attributes
  • Easy to see contrasting blue color
  • Ready-to-use finger-pump sprayer
