Lugalvan® BNO 12 is a nonionic surfactant for use in the electroplating industry and the chemical and allied industries.
Lugalvan® BNO 12 is particularly effective as an auxiliary brightener in acid zinc electrolytes for increasing the throwing power and improving ductility. It can also be used to solubilize top brighteners such as Lugalvan TC-BAR, etc. It needs to be employed at a concentration of 2 – 6 g/l. Concentration: 98-100% Water Content: 0.5% Density: 1.13-1.15 g/cm3 Viscosity: 120-150 mm2/s Cloud Point: 69-72 °C pH: 6-8
Lugalvan® BNO 24 is a nonionic surfactant for use in the electroplating industry and the chemical and allied industries with a lower concentration of 74-76% compared to the BNO 12.
Lugalvan® BNO 24 is particularly effective as an auxiliary brightener in acid zinc electrolytes for increasing the throwing power and improving ductility. It can also be used to substantially increase the cloud point of zinc plating baths. It needs to be employed at a concentration of 2 – 6 g/l. Concentration: 74-76% Water Content: 24-26% Density: 1.11-1.14 g/cm3 Viscosity: 155*205 mm2/s Cloud Point: 80-84 °C pH: 6-8
Lugalvan® DC is an aqueous emulsion of an ethylene copolymer that is commonly applied to metal surfaces to improve resistance to corrosion and to improve aesthetic appearance.
The usage of Lugalvan® DC forms films which adhere well to metal. It is especially effective on chromated, zinc-plated parts and it also reduces the tendency of chromium(VI) ions to be leached out. It can be used to prevent nickel and other metals from tarnishing, and it can be applied as a decorative coating to non-ferrous metals. Physical Form: Aqueous, opalescent emulsion Concentration: 20 – 22 % Viscosity: 25 –170 at 23°C Density 0.98 –1.00 g/cm3 pH: 8.5 – 9.
Lugalvan® FDC is a metal surface treatment that is free of emulsifiers and acts as a transparent passivating film or an adhesion promoter which allows for simplified processes and substantial cost savings.
Lugalvan® FDC is often used by metal finishers as a copolymer to reduce their manufacturing costs because the aluminum does not have to be degreased prior to product application. Colour: White - Yellow pH: 8.5 - 9.5 Freezing point: 0°C Boiling point: 100°C Flash point: >100°C Autoignition: >200 °C Density: 0.98 - 1 g/cm3
Lugalvan® HS 1000 is used to formulate brightener additives and it is known for its stellar performance in combination with nonionic and anionic surfactants
Lugalvan® HS 1000 prevents charring at high current densities and is great at improving the ductility of the plated metal at high current densities. This metal surface treatment also helps improve the brightness of the plated metal over the whole range of current densities Water Content: 1% Iodine Colour: 12 Density: 1.11 –1.13 g/cm3 Viscosity: 100 –160 mPa · s pH: 6.0 – 7.5 Setting Point: 24 – 30 °
Lugalvan® IMZ is a water and alcohol soluble top brightener for zinc electroplating with a high concentration of >99.5%
Physical Form: Colorless or Pale Yellow Flakes Concentration: >99.5% Bulk Density: 0.5–0.7 g/cm 3 pH: 9–11
Lugalvan® IZE has been developed for use in the formulation of brightener additives for the electroplating industry. It acts as a basic brightener in alkalin zinc and zinc-alloy plating, especially in cyanide-free baths.
Lugalvan® IZE is usually used in combination with top brighteners. It is normally employed at a concentration of 1-10 g/l. It has also been shown to perform particularly well in combination with Lugalvan BPC 48, and also with Lugalvan G. Physical Form: Clear, Yellow Concentration: 42-48% Water Content: 52-58% pH: 8 – 10 Viscosity: 10–40 Lugalvan IZE gives high throwing power and ensures that the plated metal is evenly distributed. It gives high brightness, particularly at low current densities and it inhibits blistering. Zinc-plated components plated with the aid of Lugalvan IZE are typically easier to chromate.
Lugalvan® P is an additive that is very soluble in saline media. The product is impervious to water hardness and protects metals against corrosion in acidic, neutral and alkaline media.
Lugalvan® P is an easy-to-formulate corrosion inhibitor used in galvanoplating, descaling boilers, preventing deposits and inhibiting corrosion in crude oil production. Color: Colourless to Yellow pH value: 7.5-9 Boiling Point: 105 °C Flash Point: 100 °C Flammability: Not Flammable Vapour Pressure: 23.4 mbar
