Oben Description

ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating is special coating for the non-ferrous metal casting and is characterised by a very high content of boron nitride. Thus ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating shows a very good non-wetting behaviour against Al, Mg, Zn and Pb as well as their alloys. It is an ideal high temperature release and lubrication agent for the coating of ladles, troughs, distribution troughs, moulds and protects these efficiently against attacks by aggressive melts.  ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating is used succesfully for the coating of ingot moulds of the remelting plants produced by Rauch Fertigungstechnik, Gmunden (Austria). By the use of ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating when casting magnesium ingots the formation of oxides on the surface of the ingots is suppressed and the quality of the casting surface dramatically improved.


Resuspend coating prior to use and dilute with distilled water if necessary (ratio 1:2 to 1:3). 
Preheat the cleaned ingot moulds up to 100°C (212°F).
Coat the ingot moulds by brushing or spraying.
Dry ingot moulds carefully. Do not contact wet coatings with metal melts.
If ingot moulds are dry the next layer can be applied.
Best performance of  ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating is achieved by thin coatings (up to 50-150µm). Thick coatings may crack during use.
Do not damage coating during use because damaged areas are not sufficiently protected.
Tools may be cleaned with water.

ObenStorage-Container Size

ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating must be protected against frost. A storage temperature of >5°C (>41°F) is recommended. The containers should be kept closed. ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating is available in 6kg-containers.

ObenSafety Advices

ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating contains water and is free of solvents. According to data available to us ALU-STOP LC25 Boron-Nitride-Coating is a non-hazardous preparation. An EC material safety data sheet is available.
