Tips and Tricks:
- For a smooth appearance, hand-rub with water or damp cloth the cured epoxy prior to hardening
- Simply cut off the amount required for your application; knead until the product is a uniform color and apply to your repair
- Molds to any surface
- Can be sanded, machined, tapped, drilled and painted when fully cured
- Heat is generated when the putty cures, the more putty that is mixed together, the more heat that is generated causing the epoxy mixture to cure faster
- Only mix the amount of putty together that can be used within the handling time.
- Slightly roughen repair area. Clean surface by solvent-wiping to remove grease, oil, dirt or other contaminants.
- (test inconspicuous area of item to be sure chemicals do not harm surface) Remove excess immediately before hardening begins wipe with acetone or Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK).
- Metal/Ceramic/Glass: File or sand cured material.
- Fabric: Once epoxy is cured, it is not possible to remove it from the fabric.
- Wood: Sand the cured material from the wood.
- Cut, Mix, Fix: Simply cut off the amount required for your application, knead until the product is a uniform color and apply to your repair. Molds to fit any surface. Can be sanded, machined, tapped or drilled and painted when fully cured.
- Heat is generated while the epoxy mixture cures; the more epoxy and hardener that is mixed together, the more heat that is generated causing the epoxy mixture to cure faster. Only mix the amount of epoxy and hardener together that can be used within the working time.
- When applying to a damp, wet or slowly leaking area, work the material forcefully into the area and apply pressure until adhesion begins to take effect.
- For a smooth appearance of the cured compound, hand-rub with water or damp cloth prior to hardening.
- Ideal application temperature is 55 degree Fahrenheit to 90 degree Fahrenheit. In cold working conditions, heat repair area to 100-110 degree Fahrenheit immediately prior to applying epoxy to dry off any moisture, contamination, or solvents, as well as to assist epoxy in achieving maximum adhesion properties.
