Valley Cottage, NY - January 27, 2006
Ceramabond(TM) 503, a new high temperature ceramic adhesive formulated by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to bond and seal thermocouple probes used in high temperature applications to 3200 °F (1760 °C).
Ceramabond(TM) 503 is an inorganic, water-dispersed, alumina-filled adhesive that resists temperatures to 3200 °F (1760 °C). It is applied easily by brush, spatula, or syringe and cures fully in 1-2 hours at 700 °F. Mechanical strength continues to improve with increases in temperature and tensile-shear strength of 900 psi can be achieved by curing further at 1000 °F.
Ceramabond(TM) 503 is an inert, chemically resistant material that will not outgas in ultra high vacuum (UHV). It is also an exceptional electrical insulator providing a volume resistivity of 109 ohms-cm and dielectric strength of 250 volts/mil.
Additional applications for Ceramabond(TM) 503 include the assembly of dense ceramic components used in ultra high vacuum equipment, the repairing of ceramic saggar plates used in furnaces, and the bonding and coating of platinum/rhodium resistance wires to aluminum oxide heater cores.
Ceramabond(TM) 503 is available from stock in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon drums. Please contact Aremco's Technical Sales Group for more information about this advanced new material.
