New Ceramabond 835 Bonds High Wattage Lamps

Valley Cottage, NY - June 3, 2005

Ceramabond(TM) 835, a new, high temperature, zirconia based ceramic adhesive developed by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to assemble high intensity, high wattage halogen lamps in high-speed production systems.

Ceramabond(TM) 835 is a high temperature, zirconia-filled, water-based formulation which bonds aggressively to ceramics, glasses and metals. It is supplied as a single part, dispensable paste that is ideally suited for automatic dispensing in high-speed production systems.

Ceramabond(TM) 835 offers exceptional thermal, electrical and mechanical properties. Typical properties include an operating temperature resistance of 3000 °F (1650 °C), dielectric strength of 200 volts per mil, and tensile-shear strength of 500-600 psi after exposure to 1000 °F.

For high-speed production, full curing is accomplished within 60 minutes by step curing in a tunnel furnace for 30 minutes each at 100 °C and 200 °C, respectively. Shrinkage upon curing is less than 1%. Cleanup of uncured residue is achieved easily using warm water and soap.

Ceramabond(TM) 835 is an inert material that exhibits no outgassing upon curing. This feature is extremely critical to lamp manufacturers since residue from outgassing can deposit on the reflector housing affecting the performance of the lamp. Ceramabondtm 835 also demonstrates good resistance to moisture and thermal shock.

Ceramabond(TM) 835 is available from stock in pint, quart, and gallon containers. For more information about this advanced product, please contact Aremco's Technical Sales Department.
