New Pyro-Paint 634-SIC Prevents Hi-Temp Oxidation of Graphite Foam
Valley Cottage, NY - March 26, 2004 FEATURES Pyro-Paint(TM) 634-SIC, a new high temperature, silicon carbide based, oxidation resistant coating developed by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to protect graphite foam for applications as high as 2550°F (1400°C). SUMMARY Pyro-Paint(TM) 634-SIC is an advanced silicon carbide filled, water-based coating that significantly reduces the oxidation of most commercial grades of graphite and carbon used in metallurgical applications to 2550°F (1400°C). This new coating significantly extends the useful life of graphite and carbon components, resulting in a dramatic reduction in operating costs. Pyro-Paint(TM) 634-SIC is a single part, 75% solids, non-volatile material that is applied easily using a paintbrush, roller, dip process or spray equipment. It dries quickly at room temperature within one hour and cures by heating to 200°F and 500°F for two hours each, respectively. Typical applications for Pyro-Paint(TM) 634-SIC include the protection of graphite crucibles, continuous casting fixtures, and arc electrodes used in metallurgical processes in the foundry and jewelry industries. This advanced material is available from stock in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon pails. For more information about this advanced new product, please contact Aremco's Technical Sales Department.
