Crystalbond adhesives allow temporary bonding of delicate crystals, metallurgical samples, glass components and ceramic substrates for dicing, slicing, drilling, grinding and polishing. They adhere readily to metals, glass and ceramics, and after machining can be washed away using suitable solvents.
Crystalbond 509 provides excellent adhesion and minimizes clogging of diamond tools compared to waxes. They are transparent in thin cross-sections. Soluble in acetone, odorless, non-flammable, biodegradable and may be rinsed in water.
Crystalbond 555-HMP and Crystalbond 555 are low melting point adhesives for moderate stress machining processes, dry plasma etching silicon wafers, de-panelling copper plated Teflon® boards, and dicing ceramic green tape. Transparent in thin cross-sections, and soluble in hot water. 555 has a Flow Point of 54ºC; 555-HMP is 66ºC.
Crystalbond 590 is a high strength, resilient adhesive, ideal for use with miniature and tall parts. Soluble in isopropyl alcohol or 590-S stripper.
Crystalbond 590-S stripper is an environmentally safe, water-dispersible, powder concentrate prepared primarily for use with Crystalbond 590 and other mounting waxes. It can also be used for the removal of silicones, greases, oils, soils, finishing compounds and other contaminants. It is non-reactive with metals and non-flammable.
Crystalbond 509-S and Wafer-Mount 562-S strippers are high performance, environmentally safe chemical cleaning agents developed specifically for the removal of Crystalbond 509, Wafer-Mount 562, polymer coatings and inorganic particulates.
