About Inorganic Ceramic Adhesive Cements Jyalucem®-20 Zircocem®-1 Zircocem®-5 Zircocem®-C9 Alucem®-HT2

Zircon Based - Single Component - Ambient Temperature Curing
Zircocem-5 is a zircon based, single component Cement which is non-corrosive, is resistant to high temperatures and high thermal shocks and cures by internal chemical setting. Ideal for bonding, joining, sealing of glass to glass, glass to ceramic, glass to metals, ceramic to ceramic, and ceramic to metals (except aluminium alloy). Since, its chemical setting time is indefinite, and final curing occurs anytime between 18 to 24 hours, it is ideal for thin film bonding and coating from 2 to 125 mils thickness.

This single component cement is available in a fine dry powder form. Mix the Zircocem-5 powder with clean tap water in the ratio specified below:

Mixing Ratio
Zircocem – 5 Powder
Clean Tap Water
80 parts by wt.
20 parts by wt.

Mix the Zircocem-5 powder and water thoroughly with suitable mixing tool to form smooth uniform paste as per desired consistency for cementing application. One can regulate the quantity of water depending upon the consistency required for method of application like trowelling, brushing or spraying. For better adhesion ensure that the parts to be cemented are thoroughly cleansed and abraded.

Initial setting time of Zircocem- 5 cement at ambient temperature (25°C / 77° F) is 4-5 hrs. and curing time is 24 hrs. depending upon the thickness of the cure. In such cases, where ambient temperature is lower or to accelerate the curing process, we suggest gentle heating up to 110°C (230°F) in an oven or suitable heating system for around 2 hours.
