Morgan Advanced Ceramics Introduces Next-Gen Waterbased Materials

Published on 2003-09-16. Author : SpecialChem

The "green" alternative to solvent based coating systems

Morgan Advanced Ceramics (MAC), a world-leading supplier of innovative ceramic solutions for the medical, telecommunications, semiconductor and aerospace markets, introduces its next-generation of environmentally friendly, water-based materials produced by MAC's EVERLUBE Products Division. These low volatile organic compounds (VOC), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), water-based products are ideal for high volume, commercial grade coating applications.

MAC's new materials provide a more cost-effective, user-friendly application alternative to traditional solvent-based solid film lubricants (SFLs). These coatings do not require dilution and therefore achieve a higher percentage of solids in the applied coating, so they are able to provide faster coverage and improved productivity. Suitable for dip spin applications (unlike existing formulas), MAC's next-generation water-based SFLs offer improved appearance and wetting properties.

Additionally, these products provide enhanced performance features compared to existing low VOC PTFE based coatings. Everlube® 9500, 9600 and 9800 offer increased salt spray protection, improved gloss and better solvent resistance to meet the most exacting industry performance requirements.

Everlube 9500 and 9600 low VOC lubricants comply with the latest environmental regulations while approaching the performance levels of traditional solvent-based SFLs. Both the 9500 and 9600 lubricants provide excellent abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistance. They perform best in lighter load carrying applications, including locking mechanisms, pump and valve components, surgical devices and fasteners.

The 9800 is a thermally cured, low VOC barrier coating with an organic binder. It offers excellent abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistance. Designed for use in a variety of environments, MAC's next- generation water-based coatings are ideal for use in pump assembly and valve body applications in petrochemical and chemical processing markets. These coatings can also serve as a primer offering enhanced versatility.
