Cerama-Dip(TM) 538N Coating for Ceramic Resistors
Press release date: December 1, 2011
Cerama-Dip(TM) 538N, a new high temperature ceramic coating developed by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to electrically insulate high power, high temperature ceramic resistors for applications to 2600°F (1427°C).
Cerama-Dip(TM) 538N is a single part, water-based, light-gray pigmented, inorganic-ceramic coating system used to electrically isolate high power, high temperature ceramic resistors. This advanced coating exceeds the temperature limitations of conventional epoxies, phenolics and silicones, and can be used in applications as high as 2600°F (1427°C). Exceptional electrical properties including a volume resistivity of 109 ohm-cm and dielectric strength of 225 volts per mil at room temperature are provided.
Cerama-Dip(TM) 538N is easily applied by dipping or brushing and cleans up prior to curing with warm water. Curing is accomplished by air-drying at room temperature for 1-2 hours, then step curing for 1-2 hours at 200°F and 350°F, respectively.
Cerama-Dip(TM) 538N is odorless and contains no volatile organic compounds that may affect the environment. No outgassing will occur upon curing or during operation.
Cerama-Dip(TM) 538N is available in standard pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon containers. Please contact Aremco's Technical Sales Department for more information about this advanced product.
