Original Press Release:
New Ceramacast(TM) 575N Bonds High Temp Ceramic Heaters
Ceramacast(TM) 575N, a new high temperature ceramic based, electrically insulating compound, produced by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to bond high temperature ceramic heaters used in appliance and industrial equipment applications to 3000°F.
Ceramacast(TM) 575N is a fine-grain, alumina-filled, ceramic compound ideal for potting high temperature electrical components including heaters, vacuum feed-thrus, PTC devices, rheostats, and temperature sensors. Material properties include a temperature resistance to 3000°F(1650 ºC), dielectric strength of 150 Volts/Mil, compressive strength of 11,800 psi, and excellent moisture and chemical resistance.
Ceramacast(TM) 575N is supplied in powder form and is mixed in a ratio of 100 parts powder to 13-15 parts water. It is easily dispensed thru pressurized dispensing equipment and hydraulically sets in 16 hours at room temperature and cures fully at 250°F in 1-2 hours. Cured material exhibits a porosity of less than 2% and an extremely low shrink rate of less than 0.3% at 1000ºF.
Ceramacast(TM) 575N is available from stock in quart, gallon and five gallon containers. For more information about this new, advanced material, please contact Aremco's Sales Engineering Department.
