YK Binder

Paint Binder that Allows Researchers to Produce Their Own High-Temperature Coating by Just Adding the Powder of Choice 

The YK Binder is a nonaqueous-based binder liquid that is used for washcoatings such as yttria. The term “washcoating” is indicative of a low hardness coating similar to a whitewash house paint. Thus, coatings produced with this binder liquid will always have low hardness on drying and have low water resistance. The binder also has a relatively low ability to suspend solids and generally produces low viscosity coatings with most refractory powders. Other properties – long shelf life of over 12 months; use ONLY in inert or vacuum atmospheres.   ***Note: contains NO yttrium oxide.
