Epoxy putty is a 2 part compound of a clay-like consistency which is extremely tough and durable with exceptional adhesion. Kneading the components together creates an exothermic chemical reaction accompanied by heat. Unlike other kind of adhesives and glues, an epoxy adhesive can be moulded into any shape you require. Once cured the product can be drilled, tapped, machined, stained and painted and is a versatile and cost effective way of carrying out your repairs.
Due to its versatility, mouldable epoxy putties can be used in a variety of applications. Common uses include filling gaps, repairing chips and cracks, and sealing leaks. The putty can be used in the commercial construction industry, industrial OEM applications and the DIY market.
There are many advantages of using an epoxy putty, as it benefits from excellent moisture and chemical resistance, and is impact resistant. The putty has increased mechanical and fatigue strength and good electrical properties, and there is low shrink during cure. Epoxy putties can be used on a variety of materials, such as metal and wood. It has a long shelf life and no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Metal epoxy putty can also come in stick form.
