Lamp Capping Cement - SUPRA - UNV 207 & UNV 208
SUPRA-UNV 207 is a phenolic novolac resin and is supplied in lump form.
SUPRA-UNV 208 is also a phenolic novolac resin but supplied as pre-mixed with hexamine in fine powder form.
Typical lamp capping cement formulation:
Instead of 12.5 parts of UNV 207 & 1.25 parts of hexamine, 13.75 parts of UNV 208 may be used.
The malachite green solution is a solution of 1 gm of malachite green in 1000 gms of industrial methylated spirit.
The above ingredients are mixed till all the materials are in solution. The solution is then added to 100 pars by weight of hiller in a mixer until smooth paste is obtained.
Fillers suitable for use in these formulations are marble dust or calcite ground to nominal 150 mesh with no retention on 30 mesh.
If the bonding properties and resilience of cement formulations without shellac is satisfactory, shellac can be eliminated from the formulations.
