Ceramacast 586 is a zirconium-silicate-based, phosphate-bonded, chemically setting ceramic compound ideal for bonding and potting high-temperature electrical components such as temperature sensors, power resistors, infrared heaters, cartridge heaters and gas igniters for applications up to 2800°F (1535°C). It is supplied as a powder and mixed with water to a paste-like consistency in a ratio of 100 parts powder to 13-15 parts water by weight. It is easily dispensed through pneumatic dispensing equipment and provides a one-hour pot life and hardening time of 6-8 hours.
