BN Lubricoat-ZV and BN Lubricoat-ZV Blue
Description

Boron Nitride Lubricoat-ZV is a relatively tough and abrasion-resistant coating that also provides excellent nonwetting with aluminium, magnesium, zinc and other nonferrous metals and alloys. The coating is designed to be diluted with water as desired.   Due to having its pH-Basic/Alkaline the “ZV” is compatible with mild steel and cast iron substrates as well as ceramics.

  • Excellent Non-Wetting with Molten Aluminum,  Magnesium, Zinc and Their Drosses— Acts Like Teflon® to Molten Metal
  • Hard Surface Lasts Longer and Reduce Maintenance, Increasing Operator Satisfaction
  • Readily Dilutable to Any Level
  • Applies Like Ordinary Housepaint
  • Safe, Water-Based
Ideal Uses
  • All metal transport components
  • Whenever a diluted coating is desired.
  • For dipping or applying thin coatings
  • For applications that require a harder surface (i.e., components that move while in contact with molten metal).

BN Hardcoat
Description

Boron Nitride Hardcoat® is the original truly tough, abrasion-resistant boron nitride coating. BN-Hardcoat® is non-wetting with molten aluminum, magnesium, zinc and other non-ferrous metals and their drosses. Ideal for high-wear uses where all other boron nitride coatings fail. BN Hardcoat should ONLY be applied and dried at room temperature.

NOTE: This paint contains acrylic polymers. Do not use elevated temperatures for the drying process. Dry at room temperature before placing into a furnace environment where any emitted vapors or volatiles will be combusted.

Key Attributes
  • Non-Corrosive to Mild Steel & Cast Iron
  • Alkaline/Basic-pH Formula
  • Non-Wetted by Molten Aluminum, Magnesium, Zinc and their Drosses
  • Applied Like House Paint
  • Safe, Water-Based, No VOC’s
Ideal Uses
  • Immersion Tubes
  • Metal Troughs, Molds
  • Ladles, Skimmers
  • Dross Buggies
  • Shot Screens
  • Stalk Tubes
  • Funnels

BN Hardcoat-CM
Description

Boron Nitride Hardcoat® CM is the same “fired” constituency as our original tough, abrasion-resistant boron nitride coating and maintains the same performance as the original but contains NO acrylics making it safer to use. BN Hardcoat CM is non-wetting with molten aluminum, magnesium, zinc and other non-ferrous metals and their drosses. Ideal for high-wear uses where all other boron nitride coatings fail. Can be applied to cold or hot substrates whereas the original BN Hardcoat should only be applied and dried at room temperature.

Key Attributes
  • Minimal Outgassing (Mostly H2O) on Heatup
  • Contains NO Acrylics
  • Same “Fired” Constituency as “regular” BN Hardcoat
  • Non-Corrosive to Mild Steel & Cast Iron
  • Alkaline/Basic-pH Formula
  • Non-Wetted by Molten Aluminum, Magnesium, Zinc and their Drosses
  • Applied Like House paint
  • Safe, Water-Based, No VOCs
Ideal Uses
  • Immersion Tubes
  • Metal Troughs, Molds
  • Ladles, Skimmers
  • Dross Buggies
  • Shot Screens
  • Stalk Tubes
  • Funnels

JK 41
Description

JK 41 is a specially formulated BN coating for the extreme stretching of superplastic forming operations. The uniform-sized BN particles give good adhesion and lubrication over the superplastic-forming/quick-plastic-forming (SPF/QPF) cycle.   The consistency of JK 41 is ideal for automatic or robotic air-spraying setups.

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
  • Ideal for robotic spraying application
  • Safe, Water-Based
Ideal Uses
  • Coating metal sheets that are to be SPF-QPF processed
  • For any parts that are to be coated with automatic/robotic air-spraying equipment

BN Lubricoat-ZS and BN Lubricoat-Blue-ZS
Description

BN Lubricoat-ZS is the same as our regular BN Lubricoat except for using a hydrochloric-acid “peptizer” instead of nitric-acid. The “ZS” version is thus somewhat better in adherence and also more dilutable with water than our regular BN Lubricoat. The “ZS” works well as long as the surface/substrate is OK with this type of acidic carrier.

Key Attribute
  • Totally Non-Wetted by Molten Aluminum, Magnesium, Zinc and Their Drosses
  • Acts Like Teflon® to Molten Metal
  • Protects Ceramics, Metals and Graphite
  • Maintenance is Reduced and Operator   Satisfaction Maximized
  • Dilutable to Most Any Level
  • Applied Like House Paint
  • Safe, Water-Based, No VOC’s
Ideal Use
  • Launders & Runners
  • Auto-Pour Ladles
  • Troughs & Tubes
  • Funnels & Spouts
  • Filter Bowls, Boxes
  • Caster Tips
  • Dross Press Heads
