Ceramabond™ 552 is an advanced, single part, alumina-filled ceramic adhesive that provides exceptional adhesion to ceramics and metals used in applications to 3000 °F (1650 °C). This easy-to-use, dispensable adhesive is also a water-based, environmentally safe material that contains no volatile organic compounds. After setting at room temperature and curing at 200 °F and 500 °F each for 2 hours, respectively, it is resistant to most acids, solvents, fuels and molten metals. Additional properties include a coefficient of thermal expansion of 4.3 ppm/°F, volume resistivity of 108 ohm-cm, dielectric strength of 250 volts/mil, and tensile shear strength of 450 psi.

Ceramabond™ 552 has many other high temperature uses from bonding ceramic gaskets in wood stoves, to electrically insulating sensors, high power resistors, gas igniters, and impellors and degassers used in molten metal processing. This product is available from stock in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon pails.
