Boron Nitride (BN) Aerosol Lubricoat® spray can

ZYP Coatings’ products are for general industry and maintenance and are not formulated for home or general non-industrial use.  

Convenient to apply and test the best Aerosol Boron Nitride coating

Fast Drying
[in a minute or so]

Ready to use after becoming “dry to the touch”

Can be used from cryogenic to high-temperatures

Ultimately non-stick/non-wetting/non-reaction -- Unique Releasecoating

Application:

                        BN-Aerosol Lubricoat  allows the application of a thin, uniform, quick-drying layer of BN onto most any substrate -- typically ceramics, graphite, or metal but also even possible with plastics, wood, etc.  Boron Nitride has very-low electrical conductivity [is a great electrical insulator from low to very-high temperatures] and high thermal conductivity with superior lubricity and release -- nonwetting with most molten metals, glasses, slags, etc.  The NEW 4-oz. aerosol spray can allows these properties to be readily tested, while also being ideal for regular use with small-area applications.

                         BN-Aerosol Lubricoat is an ideal DRY FILM LUBRICANT.  As such, a lubricating/separating film of Boron Nitride can be applied to reduce friction between surfaces and prevent adherence/reaction/galling.  Boron Nitride works in this fashion in most any environment – being truly superior to other materials in vacuum.

Characteristics:

Other ........................................................ Nearly water-insoluble after just air-drying

 Advantages:

              • Superior release/lubrication/anti-stick

              • Ideal/nonwetting with  molten aluminum, magnesium, and
                other nonferrous metals and their drosses, slags, fluxes, salts

              • Useful for hot-pressing, glass forming, superplastic forming

              • Great for forming “barrier layer” between dissimilar materials

              • For weld-spatter release and stopping off brazes

               • Easily applied

Application/Use Instructions:

• CONSULT MSDS.  Resuspend the paint before use.  Shake the can until the mixing ball is heard and then for about a minute more.  Use in a well-ventilated area.

• Clean surfaces to be coated of any oils, grease, dirt, scale etc. 

• Allow to dry thoroughly before use; based on a fast-drying solvent system, BN Aerosol Lubricoat dries   within a very-short period [i.e., typically 1-2 minutes].  It is OK to apply more layers after drying each one. 

Never contact wet coatings with molten metal.  Never get the aerosol-can close to a heat source.  The thoroughly-dried coating is ready for use at room temperature, in cryogenic conditions, or up to very high temperatures.

Storage and Shelf Life:

The aerosol-can should be kept away from open flames, electric arcs, and other high-energy ignition sources.  Consult MSDS before use.

 CAUTION: DO NOT CONTACT WET COATINGS WITH MOLTEN METAL.
