Graphite is added to aerosols working in heavily loaded applications to offer greater load carrying capacity, extreme pressure (EP) & boundary lubrication.
The addition of graphite turns the product black in colour. IKV Filmsec 1080 and IKV Filmsec 1084 contain graphite powder in an alcohol base. It air dries very quickly leaving a film of graphite coating which is excellent for lubrication. Suitable for use on conveyor belts, chain drives, fork lift masts, sliding mechanisms, etc and as a release agent on extrusion dies, moulds and casting surfaces. Is electrically conductive and has high heat resistance properties. Excellent for maintenance purposes in less than ideal conditions as the greaseless formula will not attract dirt or dust.
IKV-FILMSEC 1084 is a dry film designed to render a long lasting surface treatment utilizing the base functions of Lamellar hexagonal graphite.
IKV-FILMSEC 1084 in normal conditions a very light coat is applied, creating a film inferior to 20 um. A thick coat will have a much longer drying time and may cause the product to run, reducing its adherence. During frictional contact the product is transformed into a stabilized and durable (leaf) of protection.
IKV-FILMSEC 1084 comes in an aerosol and may be applied in the same manner as spray paint. This product is also available in bulk. The surfaces to be treated must be completely degreased and clean before application. The presence of silicone products, even in small
amounts may cause adherence problems.
IKV-FILMSEC 1084 may be applied to all surfaces that are compatible with ethanol. To improve adherence the materials surfaces may be roughened by sand or glass bead blasting, or chemically, using the appropriate product.Operating temperature: >1000°C.
