Supercoat S
Description

Supercoat S is solvent-based and allows easy application onto metals at room temperature due to its fast drying.  The Supercoat S should be applied by air-spraying (for best results) or by dipping.  Supercoat S can be diluted with Acetone for somewhat faster drying or with Ethyl Alcohol for somewhat slower drying.  After applying and drying at room temperature, a one-time “bake-on” at 850-925 C for 30 minutes or more is required. The resulting coating is remarkably flexible and tough, protective, and electrical insulating.

Supercoat S with BN
Description

ZYP Coating’s Supercoat® S with BN is modified to allow fast drying when applied by brushing, dipping, or spraying.   When applied and dried onto Iron-Chrome-Nickel alloys such as Stainless Steel, a one-time “bake-on” at 800-850 C is required.  The result is a tough, flexible Supercoat that has the special lubricating and non-wetting properties of Boron Nitride.

  • Enamel-like Supercoat for Fe-Cr-Ni alloys
  • Nonwetting/nonreaction with molten nonferrous alloys
  • Nonsticking with splatter/brazes
  • Long lasting, abrasion-resistant Boron Nitride coating

Supercoat W
Description

Supercoat W is a water-based aqueous coating that, after applying, requires a one-time “bake-on” at >= 850 C and then can be used in any atmosphere at or below 850 C.  Supercoat W is best applied by air spraying.  After “bake-on,” a remarkable, flexible, tough coating results that provides protection and electrical insulation.

Supercoat W with BN
Description

Supercoat W with BN has all the properties of water-based Supercoat W but has Boron Nitride added to provide all of its special lubricating and non-wetting properties. The coating is ideal for application onto Fe-Cr-Ni metal surfaces. After applying and drying, Supercoat W with BN also requires a one-time “bake-on” to 800-850 C. after which a well-bonded tough/flexible, electrically insulating coating results.

Key Attributes

• Molten metal transport and processing components
• Protection of metals from corrosion/attack
• Thermocouple sheaths
• Ladles and skimmers
• Weld spatter release
• Molds

Ideal Use
  • Molten metal transport and processing components
  • Protection of metals from corrosion/attack
  • Thermocouple sheaths
  • Ladles and skimmers
  • Weld spatter
  • Molds

Supercoat W Brushable
Description

Supercoat W Brushable has all the properties of water-based Supercoat W but has been modified for brush application onto F/Cr-Ni metal surfaces.  After applying and drying, this coating also requires a one-time “bake-on” to 850-950 C, after which a well-bonded tough/flexible, electrically-insulating coating results.

Key Attributes

• Enamel-like Supercoat for Metals Containing Chromium and/or Nickel with Iron
• Impervious Flexible Coating
• Electrically Insulating

Color Paste
Description

Color Pastes are ready-to-use water-based, totally inorganic, pH-Acidic pastes that allow foundries and molten metal processing facilities to add color to their operations.  Can be used for adding labels, marking, coding, logos or identification to your ceramics with use temperatures up to 800 C and to metals up to 500 C.  Can be applied by trowel, spatula, putty knife, squeegee or, more conventionally, by brush or roller, and even by pressure-fed air-spraying.  Coating is applied and dried at room temperature, and is then ready to be used in a high temperature environment.  Note that thinner coatings generally give the best results. Black, White, Red, Yellow and Blue will mix to make a nearly infinite number of colors.

Key Attributes

• Adherent to most all ceramic materials, withstanding thermal cycles and remaining color stable.

• Forms a tough, abrasion-resistant layer at temperature of 200 C and above

• Minimal outgassing on heatup (H2O and NOx )

• High-temperature stable: does not glaze, melt, run, become tacky or chalk off.

• Easily applied, like house paint

• Water-based; utensils are readily cleaned up with water

Ideal Use
  • Coating any porous or dense ceramic with a distinctive color
  • Coating ceramics or metals with safety messages
  • Providing logo or identification on parts used at high-temperatures
  • Reducing surface dusting/spalling from ceramic parts

Cera Foam
Description

Cera Foam provides a ready-to-use, water-based refractory coating that can be applied onto ceramic materials. Due to “chemical direct foaming” Cera Foam expands to 2.5x its size to form adherent, porous, black foam when first heated up to 700 C. Use Cera Foam where the properties of foam are desired: highly porous thermal insulation, sealing deteriorated surfaces, filling pock-marks/holes/gaps, helping to bond parts with spaces between them, etc. Cera Foam is engineered to expand to fill damaged areas and does not sinter, shrink or crack with use. Cera Foam adheres well to all refractory substrates, dense or porous. Cera Foam only requires a one-time heat-up to foam-in-place and then is usable in all environments to 800 C (1472 F). Ready-to-use by applying onto the area where foam is desired, drying, and then with a first-time heat-up the foam is formed in place.

Key Attributes
  • Unique coating that foams in place, forming a high-porosity refractory foam
  • Thermally insulating
  • Refractory ceramic usable to 800 C
  • Easy to apply at room temperature
  • Expands to 2.5x its size to fill gaps, crevices and pock-marks
  • Adheres to refractory ceramic surfaces
Ideal Use
  • Repairing and patching refractories in furnaces
  • Providing a thermally insulating surface
  • Expected high emissivity due to black color should give temperature uniformity
