Aremco Products Inc.'s new Pyro-Putty® 653 is an inorganic, single part ceramic and metal filled paste. The paste bonds to cast iron, steel and stainless steel, and withstands continuous operating temperatures and rigorous thermal cycling to 2000°F. Pyro-Putty 653 is a thixotropic composition that can be applied to both horizontal and vertical surfaces in cross-sections up to 1/2 in. thick. It can be machined and sanded easily after setting at room temperature for 4-8 hours and curing at 200°F for 2-4 hours. The paste is a chemically inorganic compound that will not decompose. It is also water-dispersible; environmentally safe; and resistant to most fuels, solvents and other corrosives.
