Celvaseal High Vacuum Leak Sealant

Celvaseal™ Vacuum Leak Sealant

Celvaseal™ leak sealant is a compound specially engineered for sealing leaks in high vacuum systems. It can repair leaks as large as 2 micro liters/second, even with the system under vacuum. Larger leaks can be repaired when the vacuum system is at atmosphere.

It is available in two forms: spray (ozone safe) and fluid in a brush-on bottle. It has a low vapor pressure which make is suitable for use in ultra high vacuum systems and withstands repeated temperature cycling from -200°C to 400°C. (-328°F to 752°F) Steady weight loss of 1.6 x 10 -8 gr/cm2/hr, which is lower than most epoxy based systems. Can be used at temperatures up to 300°C (572°F) continuously, and up to 400°C (752°F) for short periods. It has good adhesion to cryogenic temperatures and excellent electrical resistivity. Can be stored longer than 1 yr at 25°C (77°F).Density is 1.14 gr/cm3 and viscosity is 250-1000 cPs
Typical applications for Celvaseal™ include:
  • Glass to metal seals, such as sensor pin feedthroughs
  • Glass-Kovar joints
  • UHV systems with small leaks on metal gaskets or high penetration welds
  • Small leaks in glass vacuum systems
  • Temporary repairs of small cracks in exposed gaskets
  • Sealing hairline cracks in welds and brazed joints
  • Thread sealant of fine pipe threads for mounting sensors and components to vacuum systems

Average curing temperature time:

  • 400°C (752°F) 20-30 minutes
  • 250°C (482°F) 60-70 minutes
  • 230°C (446°F) 75-90 minutes
  • Room temperature - Days

Hysol Vacuum Sealant Kit

Hysol® Vacuum Sealant Kit

Hysol® Low Vapor-pressure Epoxy Resin Sealant seals small leaks on any type of vacuum system or component quickly and conveniently. It is a two component system resin, free of any solvents. It can be used at pressures of 10-9 or below and at temperatures between -45°C (-49°F) and +120°C (248°F) (baking temperature). It bonds well with many materials such as metals, ceramics and glass. Equivalent to Torr Seal® resin sealant.

Kit contains tube of resin, tube of hardener, 10 mixing cups and 10 wooden stirring sticks.
