New Ceramacast 510 Now Used To Encapsulate Hi-Temp Cartridge Heaters
NEW CERAMACAST(TM) 510 NOW USED TO ENCAPSULATE HI-TEMP CARTIDGE HEATERS
Valley Cottage, NY - December 14, 2001
Ceramacast(TM) 510, a new, high temperature, ceramic potting material developed by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to encapsulate cartridge heaters used in high temperature industrial process equipment throughout industry.
Ceramacast(TM) 510 is an aluminum oxide based, hydraulic-setting ceramic compound ideal for encapsulating cartridge heaters and embedding high temperature components such as induction heating coils to 3200ºF (1760ºC).
Ceramacast(TM) 510 is supplied as a dry powder, formulated with a high alumina content of greater than 90%. It is bonded using calcium aluminate and the "as-cast" and dried density is 180 lbs/ft3 (2880 kg/m3). Exceptional thermal conductivity and a high dielectric strength of 75-100 volts/mil are provided.
Ceramacast(TM) 510 is mixed with water to a paste like consistency in a ratio of 100 parts powder to 15-19 parts water. It provides a one hourpot life and hardening time of 5 hours. A full cure is achieved after drying at room temperature for 24 hours. Cured product exhibits zero shrinkage and less than 1% shrinkage at 1000ºF.
Additional applications for Ceramacast(TM) 510 include the fabrication of heat treating fixtures and cnicibles for metallurgical applications. Ceramacast(TM) 510 is supplied from stock in quart, gallon and five gallon pails. It is one of a series of Ceramacast products which provide exceptional high temperature electrical and mechanical properties.
