Re: High Temperature Couplant
: Could somebody give some details of couplants for use at high temperatures?

High temperature ultrasonic couplants are typically materials that will remain in a liquid state at highly elevated temperatures (up to 500 C), have good surface wetting properties at high temperature, and will not burn or produce toxic fumes when heated. The compositions are generally considered proprietary by manufacturers. Panametrics is among the many companies that sell them.

Krautkramer has high temperature couplants such as Hi-Tempco (good up to 500 Deg. F/230 Deg. C) or ZGM (good from 400 Deg. F to 1,000 Deg. F).
