Aremco's new single-part, ceramic-filled adhesive paste can bond to ceramic, metal, and quartz, and has a dielectric strength of 200 volts per mil, volume resistivity of 109 ohm-cm, coefficient of thermal expansion of 4.2in/in/ F, and a torque strength of 6.0 ft-lbs. It is rated up to 3,000 F (1,650C). It goes on with a brush, syringe, or automatic dispenser. It cures in 24 hours at room temperature, or can cure in two hours at 200F. When cured, it resists moisture and thermal shock. Made for assembly of igniters, thermocouples, probes and sensors such as oxygen analyzers, gas chromatographs, mass spectrometers, and high-vacuum components, it comes from stock in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon pails.
