# What is the best heat and moisture resistant adhesive?

I have to join metal to metal (Aluminium or SS piece onto a vertical SS wall) that could take a shear load of say, 600gm with an area of contact of around 2cm^2. The environment is above boiling surface of water. So, the adhesive should be resistant to 100 deg C temperature, and moisture - with water droplets. Check the image for setup. What are the best adhesives for this purpose? I have checked Araldite, but specs say its max temp is around 65 deg C. Any suggestions? Also desirable is if the adhesive is semi-permanent: If I need to remove it and make the joining at any other location, it shouldn't be terribly difficult.

• Why cant you use machine screws, ( with high temp silicone rubber adhesive to seal the threads) ? Dec 15 '17 at 13:55
• Screws are an option, but I wouldn't prefer it since the location of joining may change in the future, leaving the existing screw hole open; and I wouldn't want the SS tank to be machined every time. I was hoping to find more of a temporary joining.

• No big deal then, if you have to move it in the future you can plug the old (unused) holes with set screws with a little silicone rubber adhesive on the threads. Dec 19 '17 at 20:48
• Or if you want to be fancy, make your L-bracket with slots in it and have threaded studs mounted in the side of the enclosure, now you can bolt your bracket anywhere within the line-length of the slots. Dec 20 '17 at 20:58

Both products below claim a temperature resistance up to $$500^o$$, and are water-resistant.
