Aremco Develops Pyro-Duct 597-A, a Silver-filled Thermally Conductive Adhesive
- Jul 27, 2012
Pyro-Duct 597-A, a new silver-filled, high temperature, electrically and thermally conductive adhesive developed by Aremco Products, Inc., is now used to produce electronic and high vacuum components for applications to 1700 °F (927 °C).
Pyro-Duct 597-A is an advanced high temperature compound formulated using high purity silver powders combined with a proprietary inorganic binder system. All constituents are electrically and thermally conductive and the electrical resistivity is dramatically better than conventional epoxy-based conductive adhesives that are based on non-conductive epoxy resins. Pyro-Duct 597-A exhibits a volume resistivity of 0.0002 ohm-cm at room temperature, which is a ten-fold improvement over conductive epoxy. The tensile shear strength is 450 psi.
Pyro-Duct 597-A is a single component, water-dispersible system that contains no organic resins or solvents. It sets at room temperature in 1-2 hours and heat cures in 1-2 hours at 200 °F. In the uncured state, Pyro-Ducttm is easily cleaned using warm water and soap.
Typical applications for Pyro-Duct 597-A include sensors used in high vacuum systems, mounting single crystalline wafers for electroscopic analysis, high temperature connectors, specialty lighting, and semiconductor components.
Pyro-Duct 597-A is packaged in standard 50 grams jars. Please contact Aremco's Technical Sales Department for more information about this advanced product.
Formed in 1965, Aremco's advanced materials division has been a leader in the development and production of technical ceramics, adhesives, coatings, sealants and potting compounds for applications to 3200°F. These materials are used throughout industry in the design of sensors, electrical components and analytical instruments, as well as the maintenance and repair of high temperature process equipment.
