A versatile epoxy adhesive made from steel filled epoxy resin supplied in a two-part syringe cartridge. This viscid, self-levelling adhesive is perfect for repairs to large tolerance gaps and is fast curing with good temperature resistance.
10ml of Weicon Easy-Mix Metal has a pot life (at 20ºC) of about 4-5 minutes and will achieve handling strength (35% strength) after about 40 minutes. 50% strength will take around 2 hours while full cure will be achieved after about 1 day in 20ºC conditions.
Once cured, this black adhesive exhibits excellent adhesion to a variety of material types and can be machined. Weicon Easy-Mix Metal withstands temperatures between -50ºC and 145ºC and cures with a shore hardness of 70 D.

* Except for plastics such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyacetal, polytetrafluroethylene (PTFE) and other fluorinated hydrocarbons with naturally adhesive rejecting surfaces. Within the framework of the above types recommendations, bonding of dissimilar materials pairs (such as metals and hard plastics) is possible.
Weicon Easy-Mix Metal is available from Associated Gaskets in 50ml double cartridge containers.
Each container is supplied with one Helix Mixing Nozzle that ensures the two parts are properly mixed by the time they reach the application surface (extra Helix Mixing Nozzles are also available from AG). Weicon Easy-Mix Metal cartridges are compatible with our Weicon Easy-Mix Hand Dispenser D50 as well as some other brands of dispensing equipment.
Pre-treatment of Surface
To ensure good adhesion and a long lasting bond, the surfaces being adhered to must be clean and dry (Weicon Cleaner S or Plastic Cleaner may be suitable for cleaning and degreasing these). Smooth surfaces should be roughened where possible.
Weicon Easy-Mix Metal should be applied to just one of the surfaces being bonded. The pot life given for this adhesive is for 10ml at a room temperature of 20ºC. If larger quantities are used, the curing time will be faster due to the reaction epoxy resins have with heat. Similarly, higher ambient temperatures will shorten the cure time (a rule of thumb here is that every addition 10ºC increase above room temperature will halve working and cure times).
It is always suggested that users familiarise themselves with the correct Safety Data Sheet before using Weicon Easy-Mix Metal.
