This is a vibration-resistant, ceramic-filled, fast-setting epoxy that is perfect for bonding with ceramic wear tiles such as the ones used to line chutes, ducts, centrifuges and other components, and can also bond to metal, glass and plastic. It has a flexural strength of 11,800 psi, and a high tensile shear strength of 2,350 psi. It has an operating temperature of up to 400F, and resists acids, alkalis, organic fluids, and salts. The black, 100 percent solids epoxy is mixed at 100 parts resin and 13 parts hardener by weight. It cures within 24 hours at room temperature and in 30 minutes at 200F. The machinable cured product has a Shore-D hardness of 84, and a linear shrinkage of .004 inches/inches. It comes in pint, quart and gallon kits. Aremco Products Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-618
