Description

MAXMET 400 5-MINUTE EPOXY RESURFACING FLUID is suitable for emergency repairs to metal components suffering material loss due to mechanical damage, erosion, corrosion or chemical attack.  

MAXMET 400 5-MINUTE EPOXY RESURFACING FLUID when mixed is tolerant to poor surface conditions and can be applied directly to damp and oil contaminated steel provided all loose materials are removed before application.

The material is supplied in two parts with a base and activator, once mixed together MAXMET 400 5-MINUTE EPOXY RESURFACING FLUID provides a smooth pour-able fluid ideally suited for filling pitting or as a structural adhesive on steel and other surfaces.

Once mixed the material can be applied up to a thickness of 3.0mm without slumping. Aluminium oxide aggregates may be added to create anti-slip surfaces.

The standard application method is by short bristled brush, plastic applicator, spatula or by injection. Once the repairs are completed, the area may be over-coated with any of our polyurethane lining or 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 and machined to fine tolerances or can be sanded to achieve the desired profile of the repair.

MAXMET 400 – 5 MINUTE EPOXY RESURFACING FLUID

Description

 MAXMET 400 – 5 MINUTE EPOXY RESURFACING FLUID is a fast curing two component solvent free epoxy resurfacing and repair fluid. The product has been formulated for use on metallic surfaces where surface preparation may be restricted, or the surface is contaminated with oil or grease

Applications

·         Filling pitting corrosion on storage tanks

·         Anti-slip systems on steel decks

·         Anti-slip system for step nosing’s

·         Sealing transformer leaks

Surface Preparation

Steel

Damaged components or equipment – ideal surface preparation for this material is abrasive blast cleaning to ISO 8501/4 Standard SA2.5 (SSPC SP10/ NACE 2) and with a minimum blast profile of 75 microns using an angular abrasive. However, this product has been designed for surfaces with less than ideal surface preparation.

Hand tools use a wire brush or coarse sand paper to abrade the surface. 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 prior to and after abrading the surface.

Mechanical tools use a handheld mechanical grinder with a coarse grinding pad or rotary wire brush. Ensure all loose material and as much surface contamination is cleaned from the surface.

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

Ensure the surface is wiped with an appropriate solvent cleaner such as MEK prior to and after abrading the surface.

Leaking transformer surfaces – to repair a weeping/ leaking transformer surface mixed fluid must be applied within 10-15 seconds of the surface being cleaned. 

DO NOT ABRADE THE SURFACE WITH ANY MECHANICAL TOOLS.

If possible, use a wire brush to take off any loose corrosion or coating, then wipe the surface with a solvent wipe and take away as much excess oil as possible.

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 fluid that 

is streak free. Once mixing is complete, use the mixed paste as soon possible after mixing.

Application

Damaged components and equipment repairs – Using a brush or applicator tool, apply the material to the prepared surface, ensuring the product is pressed into any scars or cracks and profile the repair to a smooth finish. If required, the product can be used in conjunction with reinforcement tape and used to wrap round leaking pipe work.

Leaking transformer surfaces – Use the applicator tool provided to scrape the mixed material off the mixing board, apply MAXMET 400 – 5 MINUTE EPOXY RESURFACING FLUID onto the surface, press the material onto the weeping/ leaking surface. Apply the material to a target thickness of 3mm. Do not overwork the material on the repair surface. Once in place on the repair surface allow to cure for 20-30 mins.

Coverage

1kg unit of mixed product will cover 0.44 sq metres at a nominal thickness of 1.0mm

Overcoat

Times

Minimum  the applied material can be over-coated as soon as it is touch dry. 

Maximumover-coating time 4 hours

Where the maximum over-coating time is exceeded, the material should be allowed to harden before being abraded, or flash-blasted and solvent washed to remove any surface contamination
