Air-Setting Adhesives

Sealing, Coating & Encapsulation

  • Single component silicates in paste or powder
  • Indefinite working time
    1. Cures through evaporation of water
    2. Cures in 18-24 hours
    3. May require additional heat curing for high temperature applications
  • Thin-film bonding or coating applications
    1. Minimum bond-line: 50+ mils typical, 2 mils possible
    2. Maximum thickness: 1/8 inch (125 mils)
  • Accommodates automatic dispensing

Chemical-Setting Adhesives

Potting, Bonding & Casting

  • 1 or 2 components
    1. Single: Mix powder with water
    2. Two-Part: Powder and silicate liquid to be combined
  • Finite working time
    1. Cures through catalyzed reaction
    2. Pot life of 30-90 minutes

Hydraulic-Setting

Thin-film Potting & Casting

  • Calcium aluminate materials
  • Single component: mix with water
  • Cures through hydration
    1. Working time of 30-60 minutes
    2. Humid cure environment required
    3. Controlled dry-out
