Specially produced Boron Nitride coatings for the extreme stretching that occurs during
Superplastic Forming of complex parts/components

ZYP Coatings, Inc. is the world’s major supplier of Boron Nitride (BN) lubricant coatings for use with Superplastic Forming (SPF) and Quick Plastic Forming (QPF) operations.  A complete family of BN products is available for aluminum sheet that is used in lightweight transportation structures as well as for titanium sheet and bulk which is used for aerospace applications and dental inserts.  Many other specialty superplastic alloys also enjoy the benefits of Boron Nitride as the lubricant of choice.

Through years of development and perfection of particle geometry and adherence characteristics to assure ideal performance with SPF and QPF operations, ZYP Coatings produces all its BN products for Superplastic use with precise formulation techniques that provide critically-sized BN powder along with controlled adhesion and elongation properties which provide lubrication over the entire SPF/QPF cycle – while permitting easy removal after forming, yet avoiding coating buildup on dies.  No other Boron Nitride coatings/materials can provide the excellent results that are regularly achieved with the BN lubricant coatings for Superplastic Forming which are produced by ZYP Coatings, Inc.
