ZYP Coatings, Inc. announces its new “Brushable” biodegradable-oil-based lubricant/coating/paint Keralon-B for use from ambient to 1000 C. Its lubrication is based on dual types of components … both organic and inorganic ingredients: the organic being a high-flashpoint Methylated Seed Oil (called MSO) and the inorganic being a ceramic mixture of chemically-inert lubricating phases -- Boron Nitride (BN), Graphite, and Titanium Dioxide.
In lab testing, this lubricant is good as an oily mixture at room temperature; can be heated to 200 C for 8-10 hours to create a "dry-film-lubricant"; and really seems to excel at 500 C to 1000 C, where other lubricants fail. Thus, Keralon-B is a unique oil-based coating that allows its application to hot or cold surfaces needing lubrication or an inert film to protect a substrate from reactive materials.
Keralon-B can be thinned with Keralon Thinner or Canola Oil to achieve any desired viscosity, such as making a “Sprayable” coating. This new lubricant can be considered for any high-temperature-exposed parts or components, including belts, conveyers, chains, rollers, hinges/bolts/screws. Also, since the ceramic ingredients are high thermal conduction materials, Keralon-B can be used for sealing gaps with heater-cartridges.
- Superior lubrication/anti-stick from ambient to 1000 C in air/vacuum/inert conditions
- Dry-Film-Lubricant above 200 C
- Nonreactive/nonwetting with molten metals, glasses, and slags
- Prevents oxidation/rusting/galling/reactions while lubricating
- Biodegradable carrier oil with low VOC (volatile organic compound) level
