BorNiGuard applies easily and dries quickly. It is recommended to apply BorNiGuard away from flames or sparks. For efficiency of time and material you can coat several tips, nozzle, diffusers at once in a safe area. For example, apply BorNiGuard to a week's allotment of consumables and transfer to the welding area for ready replacement. You can coat the parts in the next county, bring the coated parts to the production area, and enjoy the same benefits of reduced consumables and downtime.
