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 Lubricants has been a leader in the field of high performance lubricants for many years & has met the increasing demands for tribological products that meet the requirements of the industries OEM’s.
IKV’s strategy consists of continuous research and on-going development supporting the industries design engineers by offering innovative tribological solutions.
IKV's quick reacting team, along with its capability to develop new products to meet a customer brief or application, make it a leader in its field. These products are available as greases, oils, pastes or dry coatings and are state-of-the-art solutions in the field of lubrication for long life, friction and wear reduction.
To accomplish this IKV uses a wide range of materials suitable for their tribological properties as well as for their compatibility or inertness with other materials. The result is a range of products containing approximately 500 formulations, which are capable of solving most all tribological problems encountered.
IKV realises the products must also meet application requirements and has, therefore, adapted its packaging to meet these requirements. IKV is part of a group, which has been in existence for nearly 100 years, a staff of 250 dedicated employees and a fully equipped in house laboratory with the latest equipment and a large production facility.
Although IKV Group already has a large range of proven products it prides itself on its ability to develop new products to meet the growing demands for excellence in industry.
IKV's quality management system guarantees its customers a perfect match between the properties of the products supplied and specific demands. This system has ISO 9001 vs 2000 accreditation.

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.
