Ultra-Temp 516 Bonds Zirconia Ceramics
Valley Cottage, NY - February 9, 2007
Ultra-Temp(TM) 516, a new high temperature ceramic-based adhesive manufactured by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to bond zirconia ceramics used in applications to 4400 oF.
Ultra-Temp(TM) 516 is a new, single part, zirconia-filled, inorganic adhesive system for bonding zirconia components used in high temperature sensors and instruments to 4400°F.
Ultra-Temp(TM) 516 demonstrates exceptional electrical, mechanical and thermal properties. Its dielectric strength is 250 volts/mil; volume resistivity is 108 ohm-cm; and torque strength is 8.6 in-lbs.
Due to its inert chemistry Ultra-Temp(TM) 516 will not outgas under ultra high vacuum (UHV), a common requirement for many industrial processes such as semiconductor manufacturing. Ultra-Temp(TM) 516 also provides excellent chemical, moisture and thermal shock resistance.
Ultra-Temp(TM) 516 is applied easily using a syringe, brush or automatic dispenser. Because it is water-based, cleanup is accomplished quickly using warm water and soap. Full curing is achieved by heating up to 700°F for 1-2 hours.
Ultra-Temp(TM) 516 can be used to bond a wide range of additional materials including alumina, beryllia, silicon, graphite, inconel, molybdenum, nickel, tantulum, titanium, and tungsten. It is available from stock in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon pails. For more information about this advanced product, please contact Aremco's Sales Engineering Department.
