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

Ceramic Adhesive Cement

Zircocem- C9 is a single component Zircon based high strength dispensable ceramic adhesive potting compound, and is typically mixed with water or Jyoti Ceramic’s MR liquid (which is a moisture resistant liquid) to enhance the cement’s moisture resistance properties.

Mixing Ratio
Powder 100gms
Water 25ml.
Powder 100 gms. 
MR Liquid 25ml.

Mix 100gms.of powder, add 25ml water or MR liquid (well shaken) and mix gradually to obtain a uniform paste of toothpaste consistency. The pot life of this mixture at 25°C is 35-40mins.

Initial setting time of Zircocem- C9 cement at ambient temperature (25°C/ 77°F) is 4-5 hrs. and curing time is 24hrs. The time required also depends upon the thickness of adhesive paste to achieve optimal electric and mechanical properties. To accelerate the curing time we suggest a heat cure schedule as given below but only after thorough air drying of cement.

  1. For water mixed: Around 2hrs of gentle heating up to 110°C (230°F) in a heating oven.
  2. For cement mixed in liquid: Around 2-3hrs. gentle heating at 140°C - 150°C (284°F - 302°F) in a heating oven.
