Title: Adhesive plasters. [Patent application; coatings for crucibles, control rods, etc]

Abstract

Adhesive plaster compositions are provided by treating particles of Y/sub 2/O/sub 3/, Eu/sub 2/O/sub 3/, Gd/sub 2/O/sub 3/, or Nd/sub 2/O/sub 3/ with dilute acid solutions. The resulting compositions were found to harden spontaneously into rigid reticulated masses resembling plaster of Paris. Upon heating, the hardened material is decomposed into the oxide, yet retains the reticulated rigid structure. 1 table.
