Surface Preparation

Proper surface preparation is essential to a successful application. The following procedures should be
  • First, degrease the surface by using anyone of Devcon Cleaner Blend 300 #19510. All oil, grease, and
    dirt must be removed before applying any epoxy material.
  • All surfaces must be roughened 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. This
    creates an increased surface area for better adhesion. A 75-125 micron profile is desired for an application.
    Do not “feather edge” epoxy material. Epoxy material must be “locked” in by defined edges and a good
    75-125 micron 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
    to “sweat out” all the soluble salts. A test for chloride contamination should be performed prior to any
    epoxy application. The maximum soluble salts left on the substrate should be no more than 40 ppm
    (parts per million).
  • All abrasive preparation should be followed by chemical cleaning with Devcon Cleaner Blend 300. This
    will help to remove all traces of sandblasting grit, oil, grease, dust, or other foreign substances.
  • Under cold working conditions, heating the repair area to 38-43°C immediately before applying any of
    Devcon’s metal-filled epoxy is recommended. This procedure dries off any moisture and assists the
    epoxy in achieving maximum adhesion to the substrate.
  • All prepared surfaces should be repaired as soon as possible, to eliminate any changes or surface

Add hardener to resin. Mix thoroughly with a screwdriver or similar tool until a uniform, streak-free
consistency is obtained in about 4 minutes. Be sure to mix material from the bottom and sides of the container. It is
strongly recommended that full can units be mixed.

For best results, the product should be kept and applied at room temperature. Stainless Steel Putty can be
applied when temperatures are between 13°C and 32°C. When temperatures are below 21°C, cure and pot
life will be longer, and above room temperature, cure and pot life will be shorter. Spread Stainless Steel
Putty over the prepared surface with an applicator (enclosed) or putty knife. Press firmly to ensure maximum
surface contact and avoid entrapping air. To bridge large gaps or holes use fiberglass, expanded metal, or
other mechanical fasteners.
The exposed surface area to volume of the product should not exceed 90.6cm2/liter

A 12mm thick section of Devcon Stainless Steel Putty will harden at 24°C 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 size of the mass of epoxy and the temperature. Stainless Steel Putty may be
troweled on a vertical surface up to 6mm thick without sagging.
