BN Powder Products

ZYP has three BN Powder products. BN Powder ZG is our best ultra-high-purity powder. We offer two Mixes to make your own liquid paint.

BN Powder Grade ZG
Description

Boron Nitride powder produced by ZYP Coatings’ unique-continuous process is ultra-high-purity. The BN powder can be added to many plastics, potting compounds, oils, greases, and other materials to provide enhanced thermal conductivity and dielectric strength. As a dry-powder lubricant, BN powders also give anti-squeak/anti-squeal noise reduction. BN is regularly used to aid forming, reduce sticking, and provide release after molding/casting operations. The uses for BN are unmatched as a ceramic material.

Key Attributes
  • Highly Lubricious, Even in Vacuum
  • Chemically Inert with High Refractoriness
  • High Electrical Resistivity and High Dielectric Strength with Low Dielectric Constant
  • High Thermal Conductivity
  • Transparent to Microwaves
  • Low Thermal Expansion
  • Non-Toxic
Ideal Use
  • Thermally-Conductive Inert Filler-Additive
  • Barrier Layer with Graphite
  • Anti-Stick/Anti-Sieze
  • Providing Release
  • Dry Lubricant

NovaMix LC
Description

NovaMix LC powder made into liquid-paint coating by simply adding water provides a ceramic layer, which is generally unreactive and nonwetting with molten nonferrous metals and alloys.  The coating bonds readily to ceramic, metal, or graphite substrates.  NovaMix LC performs almost as well as our ready-to-use coating equivalent: BN Lubricoat.

Advantages
  • No worries about freezing
  • Economical: shipped as powder, which avoids shipment cost of heavy water-based paint
  • Easily made into paint by the user: add water, and stir or mix until uniform
  • Easily applied after making into liquid-paint: use like housepaint
  • Ease of application: gray during first application for enhanced visibility [Note: turns white after heating to above 700 C in air]
Powder to Paint

This formulation is sold in a sealed plastic bag of powder with the amount to add to 1-gallon of water, and yields approximately 1.4 gallons of paint.

  1. In a clean 2 gallon or larger container, add one gallon of water (3.8 kg/8.3 pounds)
  2. Add the contents of the bag of powder
  3. Secure the lid. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. After shaking, a drill mixer can be used to further blend the paint until uniform.
  4. Clean surfaces to be coated of any oil, dirt, scale, etc.
  5. Apply one or more layers by brush or spray, like ordinary house paint, drying after each layer.
  6. Allow to thoroughly dry before use.  The coated part can now be placed into service.

NovaMix HC
Description

NovaMix HC powder performs almost as well as our ready-to-use coating equivalent, BN Hardcoat-CM, with strong erosion resistance and good adherence to ceramic, metal, or graphite substrates, while also being nonwetted by molten nonferrous metals and alloys. It is usable to 900 C in all environments.

Advantages
  • No worries about freezing
  • Economical: shipped as powder, which avoids shipment cost of heavy water-based paint
  • Easily made into paint by the user: add water, and stir or mix until uniform
  • Easily applied after making into liquid-paint: use like housepaint
  • Ease of application: gray during first application for enhanced visibility [Note: turns white after heating to above 700 C in air]
