Aquadag 18% is a specific type of dispersion of colloidal graphite in water, which combines exceptionally fine particles (most are below one micron in size) with the capacity to form a graphite film on a vast range of materials.
These fine films of Aquadag 18% adapt to the tiniest detail of the surface and adhere to it firmly; they form quickly on both hot and cold surfaces to provide all the benefits of graphite:
lubrication, non-stick effect, electrical conductivity, blackening capacity.
In the concentrated state, Aquadag 18% is a very stable colloidal gel containing small amounts of ammonium (which protects the dispersion). When diluted, Aquadag 18% is used on a large scale as a lubricant in foundry and metal moulding operations, as an electrically conductive coating or for impregnation.
Pretreatment of moulds, die plates and dies for metal moulding and foundry operations.
Lubricant for dies for forging ferrous and non-ferrous alloys and high-alloy special alloys.
Lubricant for foundry shells and moulds.
Lubricant for the hot drawing of tungsten and molybdenum wire.
