PES 103 Putty Stick
PES 103 Epoxy Putty Stick is a two component repair material in stick form which cures rapidly at room temperature after mixing. It is a metal repair adhesive which develops high mechanical strength in a short period of time.
1. Typical Applications
The Epoxy Putty Stick is suitable for emergency repairs to pump casings, leaking pipes, leaking tank seams, damaged flange faces, stripped threads and cracked engine blocks.
2. Surface Preparation
All oil and grease must be removed from the surface of the repair using an appropriate cleaner such as MEK. The material is suitable for application to manually prepared surfaces such as hand wire brush, sanding, mechanical grinding or wire brush. All loose material such as rust or flaking paint must be removed prior to the application of the Epoxy Putty Stick.
3. Mixing and Application
The Product is supplied in stick form and therefore the base and activator component are pre-measured. Simply break off the required amount of material from the stick and using gloved hands, knead the product until the black and grey components become a consistent mid grey. The product once fully mixed has a usable life of 3 minutes at 68 degrees F.
Once a consistent mix has been achieved, apply the material by pressing the putty onto the prepared surface.
4. Cure Time
At 68 degrees F, the Epoxy Putty Stick should be allowed to harden for the times indicated below before being subjected to the conditions indicated. These times will be extended at lower temperatures and reduced at higher temperatures:
Usable Life: 5 Minutes
Hard Dry: 30 Minutes
Machining and Light Loading: 30 Minutes
Full Loading: 1 Hour
Immersion: 1 Hour
5. Over-coating Times
Minimum: The applied material can be over-coated as soon as it is dry to the touch.
Maximum: The over-coating times should not exceed 3 hours
Where the maximum over-coating time has been exceeded, the surface should be abraded and cleaned.
6. Storage Life
Epoxy Putty Stick is usable for up to 5 years if unopened and stored in normal dry conditions (59-86 degrees F)
