Lockfast aluminium epoxy is a fast-setting, aluminium-reinforced, non-rusting epoxy putty specifically formulated to bond and permanently repair materials that will be exposed to high temperatures in industrial maintenance applications. This industrial-strength product far outperforms conventional epoxy putties at high temperatures and in lap shear tensile-strength testing.
Typical uses include rebuilding machine parts and castings; mending wheels, radiators and worn air conditioner cases; repair leaking pipes and tanks; seal leaks, cracks, and holes in aluminium siding, storm windows, and storm doors; repair leaks in aluminium boats; seal joints in aluminium rain gutters; and fill dents and dings in recreational vehicles.
How to Use
To ensure a good bond, sand both surfaces and ensure they are dry, free of grease, dirt, paint etc.
Twist or cut off the required amount of product, knead the putty with the fingers until uniform colour is achieved.
Press the putty onto the prepared surface within 2 minutes of mixing.
For a smooth appearance, rub with water or a damp cloth within the working life of the putty.
After 5-10 minutes the epoxy putty will harden like metal and start to form a bond. After 60 minutes the material will be cured sufficiently for practical use.
