What is EBS-1X?

EBS-1X is a one part high temperature graphite adhesive that is carbon filled and reinforced. EBS-1X is great solution for bonding, filling, and repairing graphite or CFC components used in reducing atmospheres to 5400℉ (2982℃).

Benefits

  • High carbon yield and 100% Solids.
  • Easy to apply non-flammable one part application.
  • No VOP’s or additional Hazmat fees for shipping.
  • Shelf life of 6 months at room temperature, 12 months in freezer.

Applications

  • Bonding graphite to graphite for repairs and fabrication.
  • Locking graphite and carbon fiber composite nuts to threads.
  • Bonding graphite foil to graphite rigid insulation or carbon fiber composites.
  • Bonding carbon fiber composites to graphite rigid insulation.

  • For best results when bonding to porous surfaces such as graphite rigid insulation or felt, use our GraphiSeal before applying EBS-1X.
  • To adjust viscosity and make the adhesive more fluid, add small amounts of Acetone. For example, 10% acetone will make the adhesive easy to brush on. (Caution bonding may weaken when thinned too much)
  • Graphite fiber may be added to adhesive to produce a paste that may be used to patch graphite rigid insulation.

What is EBS-2X?

EBS-2X is a two part high temperature graphite adhesive that is carbon filled and reinforced. EBS-2X is great solution for bonding, filling, and repairing graphite or CFC components used in reducing atmospheres to 5400℉ (2982℃). In addition to our standard size offerings, we have re-sealable 50ml and 400ml static mixer kits which automatically mix parts 1 & 2 minimizing mixing, handling, and waste.

Benefits

  • High carbon yield and 100% Solids.
  • Easy to apply two part application.
  • No VOP’s, solvents, or additional Hazmat fees for shipping.
  • Caulking tubes have custom two part guns available.
  • Shelf life of 2 years at room temperature, 3 years in freezer.
  • Hardens at room temperature with a1-2 hour working window.
