YAG Binder has a good ability to suspend solids. It yields very refractory 3Y2O3*5Al2O3 as the phase that bonds the ‘filler’ solids added to the binder. The melting point is 1940°C. With a pH-Acidic (3-4) range, this binder can be used with powder solids that are stable in acidic medium. YAG Binder has a long shelf life of over 12 months and is usable in all atmospheres to 1900°C.
