Pyro-Duct 598, a new high temperature, nickel- filled adhesive developed by Aremco Products, Inc. is now used to produce electrically and thermally conductive joints in electrical and electronic components used in applications to 1,000°F (538°C).

Pyro-Duct 598 is a single part, nickel-filled silicate-bonded, electrically conductive adhesive for use in applications to very high temperatures. Highly filled with nickel flake particles, Pyro-Duct 598 provides a volume resistivity of 0.005 Ω cm and thermal conductivity of 17.9 Btu-in/h. This adhesive can be used to bond a variety of substrates including ceramics, glasses and metals.

Pyro-Duct 598 is a water-dispersed system that contains no volatile organic compounds. It is easy- to-apply and cleans up with warm water and soap in the uncured state. Curing is accomplished easily by heating at 200°F for 2-4 h. Further curing and strengthening is achieved in situ as the operating temperature rises to 500°F and above.

Applications for Pyro-Duct 598 include the metallising of ceramic parts and coating other non- conductive surfaces to produce electrically conductive paths.

Pyro-Duct 598 is available in two standard viscosities, 598-A for adhesive applications, and 598-C for coating applications. It is offered from stock in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon pails.
