Saint-Gobain Launches CeraGlide™ Boron Nitride Coatings
By: Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials, Boron Nitride
CeraGlide coatings aim to solve challenges related to lubrication, protection, and mold release, particularly under high temperature conditions. Boron Nitride coatings are used to coat parts, launders, troughs, ladles, spoons etc during operations like casting, pressing, forging and extrusion. Other uses are in superplastic and quick plastic forming, or anywhere high temperature protection, lubrication and release are paramount.

"The launch of our CeraGlide brand represents our focused effort to advance BN coatings technology. We are committed to bringing new, innovative solutions and value to the market," said Brad Kenny, Product Manager for Boron Nitride. "We have strengthened and shortened our development process to begin creating a new and dynamic range of premium products," adds Kenny.
The key areas of improvement in CeraGlide grade SF+ and 10SF+ are suspension stability and effective solids dispersion. Improved solids dispersion offers more consistent and even coating layers for better adhesion and overall performance. The improved solids stability reduces settling and allows for easy mixing and tighter viscosity ranges of the coating. This makes it more consistent for automated and robotic applications or when there is extended time between uses.
CeraGlide Grade SF+ offers premium value and flexibility of concentrated BN coating that can be used as is, or diluted to desired consistency. Grade 10SF+ offers a ready-to-use formulation, simplified set-up, efficiency and performance in automated and robotic applications.
