A continuing problem in the firing of ceramic parts is the cracking
of carrier plates, or saggers. Aremco's new Ceramabond™ 503, a
single component alumina based adhesive system, can reportedly be
used to repair sagger plates with excellent results. This new
inorganic, water soluble, alumina filled adhesive system resists
temperatures to 3200°F (1760°C). It can be applied by spatula, syringe
or brush, and it fully cures in 1-2 hours at 700°F. According to the
company, Ceramabond 503 sinters and strengthens further to a lap
shear strength of 800-900 psi as it is exposed to the ultra-high
temperatures required in the firing of ceramic parts.
