Type CE Blackbody is a water-based, high-emissivity Cerium Oxide (CeO2) coating that has the good thermodynamic stability of Rare Earth Oxides (REOs) and forms 90% CeO2 after outgassing at 500-600 C. The Type CE Blackbody coating has very good chemical and erosion resistance, and is designed for ceramic and refractory substrates. A conservative upper use limit for the coating is 1500 C (2732 F). See our US Patent 6,007,873 on CeO2 for a high emissivity coating.
Cera Glue AA is a fiber-free, ready-to-use, water-based, high-temperature-use (up to nearly 1500 C [2732 F]) bonding glue for Alumina-to-Alumina or for bonding high-Alumina content ceramics to one another.
Another new glue in 2020. Cera Glue Sealcoat is a water-based coating that can glue ceramic pieces as well as forming a vitreous impervious seal on most ceramics that withstands thermal cycling. This product requires a one-time bake-on at 800-850 C for ½ to 1 hour for use up to nearly 800 C (1472 F).

Another new product in 2020. Cera Glue AA is a fiber-free, ready-to-use, water-based, high-temperature-use (up to nearly 1500 C [2732 F]) bonding glue for Alumina-to-Alumina or for bonding high-Alumina content ceramics to one another. Cera Glue bonds parts together dramatically, creating a strong adhesive connection of the pieces. Apply two coats to both faces to be bonded, drying between each coating at room temperature or at 60 C, followed by heating up to at least 1500 C in any atmosphere for around ½-2 hours.
First new product in 2020. Color Pastes allow foundries and molten metal processing facilities to add color to their operations. Black, White, Red, Yellow and Blue will mix to make a nearly infinite number of colors. Can be used for adding labels, marking, coding, logos or identification to your ceramics with use temperatures up to 800 C and to metals up to 500 C.
ZYP Coatings’ new Phenom SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) allows studying of high-temperature reactions with high-resolution imaging, and observation of material interactions with elemental mapping microanalysis — enabling ZYP to be at the forefront of coatings technology.
Seize-Stop provides anti-seize protection in industrial applications where metal containing products are not allowed. It prevents seizing, corrosion, rusting, and galling between metal parts, and is recommended for service from ambient to 900 C (1652 F) in air atmosphere.
