M-METAL 200 - Metal Epoxy Liquid - Standard Cure
Is a 2-part Metal Epoxy Liquid that when mixed together provides a smooth pour-able epoxy fluid.
Once mixed, the material can be applied up to a maximum film thickness of 3.0mm without slumping. Whilst the product is still wet aluminium oxide aggregates may be added to create tough anti-slip finishes.
The normal application method is by short bristled brush, plastic applicator, or spatula. Once cured M-METAL 200 – Metal Epoxy Liquid can be drilled tapped, machined, or sanded to achieve the desired profile of the repair.
- Filling pitting corrosion
- Resurfacing worn Pump Housings
- Scored Hydraulic Rams & Pistons
- Resurfacing Head & Tail Rollers
- As an Anti-slip System for Steel Steps & Walkways
- All oil and grease must be removed from the surface using an appropriate cleaner such MEK or similar type solvent.
- All surfaces must be abrasive blasted to ISO 8501/4 Standard SA2.5 (SSPC SP10/ NACE 2) minimum blast profile of 75 microns using an angular.
- Once blast cleaned, the surface must be degreased and cleaned using MEK or similar type solvent.
- All surfaces must be coated before gingering or oxidation.
- All oil and grease must be removed from the surface using an appropriate cleaner such as MEK.
- All surfaces must be mechanically abraded using handheld grinders to ISO 8501/4 ST3 (SSPC SP3 ST3).
- Once abraded, the surface must be degreased and cleaned using MEK or similar type material.
- All surfaces must be repaired before gingering or oxidation occurs.
Prior to mixing please ensure the following:
- Warm the Base component to 15-25°C before mixing
- Do not apply the material 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: 3:1 by volume or 8:1 by weight
- When mixing both materials, it is very important to have a uniform colour that is streak free. Once mixing is complete, use the mixed paste as soon possible after mixing.
Use all mixed material within 20-25mins at 20°C.
- As a Fairing Coat for filling badly pitted or scarred surfaces apply the material using a rubber float across the repair surface ensuring the product is pressed into any holes or cracks. The maximum wet film thickness this material can be applied onto a vertical surface’s without sagging is 3mm.
- As an Anti-Slip Systems for conveyor rollers, steps, or ramps, apply the product to the surface at a wet film thickness of 500 microns and then broadcast a suitable aggregate onto the surface (Aluminium Oxide or equivalent). Once cured brush off any excess aggregate.
- As a Resurfacing material to repair worn or damaged surfaces the application should be carried out in two coats. The material must be applied at a target wet film thickness of 250 microns per coat.
- Minimum – the applied material can be over-coated as soon as it is touch dry.
- Maximum – the over-coating time should not exceed 6 hours.
Where the maximum over-coating time is exceeded, the material should be allowed to harden before being abraded or flash blasted to remove surface contamination.
