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

August 21, 2013

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.

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.
