Putty – structure which is applied to restoration of surface before laying or drawing finishing covering. The epoxy putty made of epoxy resin, hardener and filler is most often used. Allocate 4 views: on wood, on metal, on plastic and on concrete.
The main component of epoxy putty – pitch. This viscous substance of brownish shade which gives to structure necessary properties. On consistence she is happy liquid therefore for the necessary structure add filler. The specific type of filler depends on range of application – it can be wooden sawdust, swarf, fiber glass. In putty on concrete of filler it is less, than in other types.
Putty becomes dense thanks to special hardener. Besides, this component provides fast drying of the put layer that accelerates repair works.
Epoxy putty has number of advantages. Among them – high resistance to influence of various structures upon completion of polymerization. At the same time putty does not possess unpleasant smell, and the abrading process occurs quickly and without additional efforts. Solution will serve long, it can be covered with various paint and varnish products.
Epoxy putty on wood
Wood – the natural material having number of powerful advantages. But at the same time it remains whimsical in construction and to subject negative environmental factors. She badly transfers both heat, and cold, drought and the increased humidity. On frost the tree contracts, from water surplus – extends. Epoxy putty on wood is intended to protect material from this influence. Thanks to the this solution does to features tree steady and strong.
In the course of hardening, hard putty on wood does not take seat and does not accumulate. Solution remains elastic and pliable thanks to what it is easy to process it manually, without use of additional tools.
Epoxy putty on tree looks very naturally: after the procedure of processing the sites which are closed up by solution will be imperceptible and indistinguishable from untouched surface. It can be painted in any color – black, bright and saturated or even clean white.
Putty on wood cannot be combined with processing by mordant on tree. Solution is not compatible to this finishing material.
Putty on tree is used for seal of chips, cracks and scratches on wood structures. Besides, cover with it slots and eliminate roughnesses for restoration of floors from solid wood. By means of epoxy putty it is possible to make joints and distances between floorboards almost imperceptible.
Besides, this solution process doors and windows for elimination of roughnesses.
Epoxy putty on tree can be prepared in house conditions, the hands. Epoxy resin, hardener, sawdust, plaster and chalk is for this purpose necessary. At first in big basin it is necessary to connect epoxy resin and hardener. In a few minutes to add small sawdust, plaster and chalk. Then carefully to mix mix then it is completely prepared for use.
In the same way it is possible to make putty for other materials, having added to mix instead of sawdust aluminum powder for mix on metal, the crushed fiber glass – for solution on plastic or cement for putty on concrete.
Epoxy putty on metal
Intends for processing of metal surfaces. Epoxy putty on metal differs in the increased adhesion (compound of various materials) and excellent moisture resistance. Therefore it reliably clings to metal and protects it from corrosion and rust.
Epoxy putty on metal is often used at car repairs. It helps to level case part of the machine and to prevent its further corrosion. Besides, solution helps to restore the body of boats and boats and is widely applied to restoration of pipelines.
Producers produce ready hard putties on metal which are capable to sustain influence of various chemicals and also long contact with water without negative consequences.
Epoxy putty on plasticity
By production of cars, pipelines and other large-scale productions often use not metal pipes, and made of polyvinylchloride. For processing of such products, elimination of defects and other damages epoxy putty for plastic is used. It is applied to alignment of the fiberglass body of the boat.
To process plastic surface, it is necessary to observe certain sequence of actions. First of all – to clean zone from dust, fat, dirt. It is especially carefully necessary to smooth out the damaged sites by means of abrasive paper. Then special solution to degrease the processed area that solution has laid down even layer. And only after all preparatory actions it is possible to apply putty. Normal epoxy mix for plastic is applied rubber with spatula. In advance to prepare two types of abrasive paper: coarse-grained and fine-grained. To grind the turned-out mix at first the first, then the second.
It is necessary to observe safety precautions: the epoxy putty on plastic differs in the increased toxicity. During the work with it it is necessary to put on the respirator protecting airways from harmful vapors.
Epoxy putty on concrete
On concrete surfaces of crack, hollows and chips easily are eliminated with suitable epoxy mix for concrete. If near at hand there is no ready mix, it is possible to mix the plain epoxy glue divorced with cement and sand. It is economical and simple option.
To close up crack in concrete by means of epoxy putty, it is necessary to use the palette. It is possible to eliminate with simple movements all roughnesses quickly. Moreover, the crack which is closed up thus will become even stronger, than other surface. Therefore epoxy putty can be used not only for restoration, but also for concrete strengthening.
Careful grinding will help to hide work traces. It is easy to grind putty to absolutely plain surface.
