High Temp Glue?
« on: June 04, 2008, 04:13:02 pm »

To hold dicro lenses in place and to hold some other things together in a 250watt halogen fixture.

Anyone have product that they know works? We have a proprietary fiber unit that has a lamp glued into a holder/reflector. The company wants an outragous price for it. So I'm trying to do the next logical thing...

Figure out how hot the fixture gets, and then you can more intelligently choose your glue.  Your local auto parts store should have a reasonable selection of high-temperature adhesives as well.

And FWIW, I've repaired the body of a 500W Altman 3.5Q using high-temp epoxy putty, and it lasted 2 months of touring before I left the company.  So some of the high-temp adhesives do work.

Wish I could figure out how hot it gets as the lamp is burned out... I guess I might have to buy one of their lamps....

They used a white ceramic kind of glue... I guess I'll have to go digging...

Lycian uses high temperature Silicone adhesive such as or similar to McMaster Carr Part #74515A32 Dow Corning 736 Heat-Resistant Silicone 3.0 Ounce Tube to glue as it were the heat shields to the plates for them.  Might work for what you are doing.  

For Gobos, I use 76455a27 high temerature fibreglass electrical tape 3M Scotch 69 Fiberglass Hi-Temp Electrical Tape 1/2"x66' to fix them to the gobo holder better.  

For adhesive on lamps, most lamp manufacturers use a sort of ceramic paste similar to what's available in one form or anther below.  

When I need to do a service call to say a 5K DPY lamp, I normally use 7551a23 4oz. High-Temperature Ceramic Putty Cotronics Corp. #7020  in combination with 7482A31 1# Resbond #907 Ind. St. Fireproof Adhesive Cotronics Corp.  

This in general with the various thicknesses of 87575K83 1/32"x3"x50' Ceramic Fiber Strip as insulator pads.

250w lamps are not that hot - taken not literally as a slam.  The concept of buying the lamp with reflector assembly is an optically aligned assembly.  There is a website out there that offers to replace the lamps given used reflectors at a discount.  Ran across them about a week or so about in a pamflet.  Have to do a search for what company offers that is at work in the moring but there is a company out there that will take used gear and optically align a new lamp in it for you.

Used to think JDR/MR-16/E-26 lamps much less AR-111 lamps should be field replacable also and they should be.  Norman Lamps at least I think offers such above lamp types, but for the replacement projector/fiber oriented lamps, while they might, I'm thinking of another company.

I'll check in the morning, but otherwise if dead set on doing it yourself, I would say in the last post the high temperature silicone adhesive would do the trick.

Brian, that is a wealth of info there. I bow to you and thank you for the products that should do the trick.
