Chemical Set Cements set or cure by an internal chemical action which does not require exposure to air. Chemical Set Cements can be used in thick applications (applied in thicknesses greater than 1/4")*.
SELECTION CRITERIA FOR CEMENTS 1. Type of Application –Potting, sealing, encapsulating, assembling, bonding. Is a thick or thin film of cement required? This dictates whether or not an air set or a chemical set cement can be used. 2. Thermal Considerations –What is the maximum temperature that the cement must withstand? What degree of thermal conductivity is needed? What degree of thermal expansion is allowed? These properties are then matched to the appropriate cement. 3. Solvent – 10% Sodium Hydroxide. However it’s difficult to remove cured cement. 4. Substrate – What materials will the cement be in contact with?

† All amounts shown in EUR, GBP, or USD Note: * Air Set Cements are also available. See OMEGABOND® 300, OMEGABOND® 400 and OMEGABOND® 500. These cements set or cure by air drying which requires that they be applied in thin layers. ** Porous substrates may require dampening before application of mixed cement. For OMEGABOND® 600 and OMEGABOND® 700 use OB-TL. For CC HIGH TEMPERATURE Cement use CC HIGH TEMPERATURE Cement liquid binder to dampen porous surfaces.
