Description

MAXMET 600 5-MINUTE EPOXY METAL REPAIR & REBUILDING COMPOUND is solvent free, epoxy repair and rebuilding compound, suitable for emergency repairs to metal or plastic components suffering material loss due to mechanical damage, erosion, corrosion or chemical attack.

MAXMET 600 5-MINUTE EPOXY METAL REPAIR & REBUILDING COMPOUND when mixed the material is tolerant to poor surface conditions and can be applied directly to damp or wet surfaces, providing all loose material is removed before application.

The material is supplied in two parts with a base and activator, once mixed together , MAXMET 600 5-MINUTE EPOXY METAL REPAIR & REBUILDING COMPOUND provides a smooth grey paste. The mixed the material can be applied in a single coat up to a thickness of 20.0mm without slumping, allowing for faster repair times and return to service.

Typical plant and equipment repaired using MaxMet 600 include Shafts, Pumps, Flanges, Underwater structures and Tanks. The normal application method is by short bristled brush, plastic applicator or spatula.

Once the repairs are completed, the area may be over-coated with any of our epoxy or polyurethane coating systems, providing additional long-term asset protection. When mixed the product has a standard has a pot life of 5 mins. Once cured it is readily drilled, machined, tapped or can be sanded to achieve the desired profile of the repair.

MAXMET 600 – 5 MINUTE EPOXY METAL REPAIR & REBUILDING COMPOUND

Description

MAXMET 600 5-MINUTE EPOXY METAL REPAIR & REBUILDING COMPOUND is a 5-minute solvent free, epoxy repair and rebuilding compound. Suitable for emergency repairs to metal or plastic components suffering material loss due to mechanical damage, erosion, corrosion or chemical attack.

Applications

·         Filling pitting corrosion

·         Leaking seams on storage tanks

·         Pump impellers and casings

·         Leaking flange faces

·         Shafts and bearing housings

·         Resurfacing underwater structures

·         Cracks in Engine Blocks

Surface Preparation

Steel

All oil and grease must be removed from the surface of the repair using an appropriate cleaner such as MEK or similar solvent. For optimum performance, the surface should be grit-blasted to ISO 8501/4 Standard SA2.5 (SSPC SP10/ NACE 2) and a minimum blast profile of 75 microns using an angular abrasive.

Once blast cleaned, the surface must be degreased and cleaned using MEK or similar solvent. All surfaces must be repaired before gingering or oxidation occurs

Hand tools use a wire brush or coarse sandpaper to abrade the surface.

Mechanical tools use a handheld mechanical grinder with a coarse grinding pad or rotary wire brush.

DO NOT POLISH THE SURFACE, ENSURE THAT THE SURFACE HAS A CROSS HATCH PATTERN.

Ensure all loose material and as much surface contamination is cleaned from the surface. Ensure the surface is wiped with an appropriate solvent cleaner such as MEK after abrading the surface.

Surface Preparation

Salts

For salt contaminated surfaces the area must be grit-blast cleaned as mentioned above and left for 24 hours to allow any ingrained salts to come to the surface.

After this 24-hour period the surface must be washed with MEK prior to brush blasting to remove the surface salts. This process must be repeated until all ingrained contaminants have been sweated out of the surface.

Cracks

In the case of cracked surfaces, the cracks should be stabilised by drilling the termination points and the cracks ve-ed out and drilled, tapped and bolted every        75 -100 mm.

Mixing

Warm the Base component to 15-25°C before mixing and do not apply when the ambient or substrate temperature is below 5°C or less than 3°C above dew point.

Mix both Part-A and part-B together in full units as supplied.

For small quantities us a mixing ratio of:   

1:1 by volume or 1:1 by weight

When mixing both materials, it is very important to have a uniform grey paste that is streak free. Once mixing is complete, use the mixed paste as soon possible after mixing.

Application

Using a spatula or applicator tool, apply the material to the prepared surface, ensuring the product is pressed into any holes, scars or cracks and profile the repair to a smooth finish.
