How long does Devcon 10110 plastic steel take to cure?
A 12.7mm thick section will harden at 21ºC in 4 hours. The material will be fully cured in 16 hours at which time the material can be machined, drilled, or painted. The actual cure time of epoxy is determined by the mass used and the room temperature at the time of repair.
Proper surface preparation is essential to a successful application. The following procedures should be considered:
- All surfaces must be dry, clean, and rough.
- If the substrate surface is oily or greasy use MEK or a similar solvent to degrease the surface.
- Remove all paint, rust, and grime from the surface by abrasive blasting or other mechanical techniques.
- Aluminum repairs: Oxidation of aluminum surfaces will reduce the adhesion of epoxy to a surface. This film must be removed before repairing the surface, by mechanical means such as grit-blasting or chemical means.
- Provide a “profile” on the metal surface by roughening the surface. This should be done ideally by grit blasting (8-40 mesh grit), or by grinding with a coarse wheel or abrasive disc pad. An abrasive disc may be used provided the white metal is revealed. Do not ’feather edge’ epoxy materials. Epoxy material must be ’locked in’ by defined edges and a good 75 - 125 microns profile.
- Metal that has been handling seawater or other salt solutions should be grit blasted and high-pressure water blasted and left overnight to allow any salts in the metal to ’sweat’ to the surface. Repeat blasting may be required to ’sweat out’ all the soluble salts. A test for chloride contamination should be performed prior to any epoxy application. A bristle test or similar can be used to evaluate the salt level. The maximum soluble salts left on the substrate should be no more than 40 p.p.m. (parts per million).
- Chemical cleaning with MEK or a similar solvent should follow all abrasive preparation. This will help to remove all traces of sandblasting, grit, oil, grease, dust, or other foreign substances.
- Under cold working conditions, an optimum application can be achieved by heating the repair area to ~40º C immediately before applying any of Devcon’s Metal-filled Epoxies is recommended. This procedure dries off any moisture, contamination, or solvents and assists the epoxy in achieving maximum adhesion to the substrate.
- Always try to make the repair as soon as possible after cleaning the substrate, to avoid oxidation or flash rusting. If this is not practical, a general application of FL-10 Primer will keep metal surfaces from flash rusting.
Plastic Steel Putty (A) is formulated to be a dense mix that can be applied easily to overhead and vertical surfaces without running or sagging. For the 500g and 1Kg kits, empty the Resin and hardener onto a mixing board and mix using a spatula. Do not mix in the containers. For the 10Kg kit, add the hardener to the resin and mix using a T-shaped mixer or Jiffy ES mixer attached to a power drill. Fold the material by vigorously moving the mixer up and down until a uniform mix has been achieved. Once mixed, immediately spread out the mass of material onto a suitable area before use to avoid a rapid exotherm and associated reduction in pot life.
For best results, the product should be kept and applied at room temperature. It can be applied when temperatures are between 13ºC and 52ºC. Spread the putty over the prepared surface with a putty knife. Press firmly to ensure maximum surface contact and avoid trapping air. To bridge large gaps or holes use fiberglass, sheet metal, or wire mesh.
SHELF LIFE & STORAGE
A shelf life of 3 years from the date of manufacture can be expected when stored at room temperature (22ºC) in their original containers
