Coverguard is a water-based paintable silicon carbide (SiC) coating that is usable to 1400°C (2552°F) in air/oxidizing atmospheres to protect all graphite and carbons from oxidation while providing a tough, abrasion-resistant layer. Coverguard reduces carbon loss and costly graphite component replacement.


Key Attributes

  • Extends Lifetime & Reduces Maintenance Costs
  • Provides a Hard, Abrasion-Resistant Layer
  • High Emissivity due to SiC
  • Usable on all Graphites / Carbons
  • Withstands Cyclic Use
  • Forms Sealed-Porosity-Coating That Stops Oxidation: Performs Best if Used > 700°C  (>1292°F) due to Pore-Sealing
  • Water-based, Ready-to-use, Like House paint

Ideal Uses

  • Oxidation Reduction and Prevention with Graphite and Carbons
  • Abrasion-Resistant Surface Sealant Layer for Graphite
