Aremco-Bond 568 from Aremco (Valley Cottage, NY) is an advanced, two parts, 1-to-1 mix, aluminum-filled epoxy system that provides exceptional mechanical and thermal properties to 400 degrees. According to the company, its remarkable mechanical strength and thermal conductivity make it ideal for high temperature heat exchange applications. Properties include a thermal conductivity of 9.0 Btu-in/hr-ft2-oF and a flexural and tensile strength of 11,400 and 2,500 psi, respectively, as measured by ASTM D1002-94. Other features include:
- Excellent adhesion to copper, aluminum, steel, glass, ceramic and a variety of high temperature plastics including polyimides and composites.
- Resistance to a wide range of acids, bases, salts and organic fluids. Extended immersion studies have been conducted with no effect in various concentrations of hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, sulfuric acid, sodium chloride, ammonium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, jet fuel, gasoline and toluene.
- Easily mixes in a 1-to-1 ratio by weight or volume and cures at room temperature or by applying low heat.
- Optional pint, quart and gallon container sizes, as well as 50ml, 200ml and 400ml dual barrel cartridges that can be loaded to mechanical or pneumatic guns for automatic mixing and dispensing.
