Ceramic Weld Spatter Guard

Postby Superiorwelding » Sat Mar 29, 2014 8:10 pm

My local welding supply asked my to try out this BorNIGuard ceramic coating for MIG nozzles. I have not run it a lot but will have to say it seems to work well. It is pricey so I am not sure yet if it is something I will invest in. Anyone here use this stuff? Was wanting to see others feedback and share this product as well.

Hey,

We use that at work. Not the same brand but same product. It works very well, although you need to alter your nozzle cleaning techniques as you will scrape the paint off. I found that "rubbing" the ring of spatter off the end of the torch with a gloved hand works well, and then a bent bit of mig wire used like a machinists deburr tool works well.

how long does an application last? I have always used nozzle gel, which is pretty cheap and requires frequent reapplication

I have heard it is advertised to last a 8 hour shift. In my opinion the cost savings would come from not having to stop and re-apply nozzle gel or anti-spatter. I have at max 4 hours on the nozzle in the picture, so I would say it is doing its job. I cleaned the nozzle once and the spatter fell right off.

It lasts a long time if you are careful as i said, and because the nozzle is always pretty clean its easy to reapply. Also because theres no need for heat like with dip, you can give it a quick spray just before lunch or whenever.

Ceramic anti-spatter is very popular in Europe. Not so much in USA ... yet. Very valuable to reduce machine downtime and make cleaner, more continuous welds.

BorNiGuard ceramic anti-spatter is popular on fixtures and fittings, too.

I actually am liking this ceramic spatter guard. It does seem to last longer than anit-spatter. I also have sprayed a table with it and it works well.

I got it as a demo and do not know if they are stocking it and selling it yet. My LWS is Albright Welding Supply here in Wooster and I will highly recommend them. There phone is 330.264.2021 and ask for John or Dave and tell them Jonathan sent you.
