Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials Adds Green Tinted Coatings to its Combat® Coating Portfolio

Published on 2013-08-16. Author : SpecialChem

AMHERST, NY -- The world's leading manufacturer of hexagonal boron nitride, Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials, has added new green tinted coatings to its Combat® coating portfolio. The new tinted coating protects surfaces from extreme conditions of high temperature, corrosion or oxidation, while adding a color to improve application visibility and enable efficient re-application during processing.

Combat Boron Nitride coatings are entirely inorganic and lubricious. Resistant to high-temperature, corrosion and wetting, Combat coatings can be applied to a variety of porous and non-porous materials including graphite, metals and ceramics. In a typical application, such as secondary aluminum processing, Combat BN tinted coatings remains color fast at aluminum melt temperatures. This eliminates the guesswork and allows for easy and visual detection of areas where re-application is necessary.

"A feature not available until now as white coating tends to blend with white cast refractory, green tinted coatings avoid unnecessary re-application steps, while preventing blistering defects that may occur without timely re-application" said Neelam Kumar, Product Manager Combat Coatings. "Furthermore, Combat tinted coatings have a neutral pH and are cobalt and chromium free, in line with our commitment to the environment," added Kumar.

The new addition to Combat coatings specifically targets mold release applications in high temperature environments such as light metal processing, secondary aluminum manufacturing and glass manufacturing.
