Original Press Release:
Ceramabond(TM) 503 Now Used to Bond Aluminum Oxide Ceramics
Ceramabond(TM) 503, a new high temperature ceramic adhesive formulated by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to bond aluminum oxide ceramics for a wide variety of high temperature applications to 3200°F (1760°C).
Ceramabond(TM) 503 is an inorganic, water-dispersed, aluminum oxide (alumina) filled adhesive that resists temperatures to 3200°F (1760°C) and is ideal for bonding alumina ceramics. 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.
Typical applications for Ceramabondtm 503 include the assembly of dense ceramic components used in ultra high vacuum equipment, repairing of ceramic sager plates used in furnaces, potting thermocouples and gas sensors, and coating platinum/rhodium resistance wires to alumina 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.
