Boron Nitride Coatings

Boron nitride is a white ceramic based lubricant with extreme thermal stability, up to 1200 degrees Celsius.

IKV Lubricants have a range of dry film coatings based upon this material, available in bulk for spraying or painting on to the substrate or, we have boron nitride aerosol sprays which allow a thin coating of material to be applied.

These materials can be used as a release agent for molten metals at extremely high temperatures and can also be used as a protective coating for welding equipment, as well as an anti-spatter coating.

A thin coating of boron nitride allows welding equipment to be easily cleaned of spatter.

IKV Filmsec 1024 Spray is a dry lubricant developed for long-lasting surface treatment with a base function of boron nitride. The IKV Lubricants boron nitride aerosol sprays allow a thin coating of material to be applied. It is designed for usage in the following applications:

Welding

  • Protection of ceramic nozzles
  • Protection of surfaces from slag scrapers

Forging

Foundry

  • Mould start-up with light and copper alloys, for gravity or die-casting

Extrusion

  • Wire extruders
  • Shears
  • ​​Surface protection in contact with aluminium under pressure

Glass Works

  • Transfer tables
