Weicon Plastic Metal WP can be applied in layers up to 10mm thick and cures with very little shrinkage (0.02%). Pot life for 200gm at 20ºC is about 30 minutes. This highly viscous putty has a 1:1 mix ratio and to make things simple, extra space has been left in the resin container so the entire contents of the hardener container can be added and thoroughly mixed.
Weicon Plastic Metal WP will cure to the point where it can handle mechanical loads in about 16 hours and achieve final hardness after around 96 hours (or 4 days). Once fulloy cured, this tough, long lasting wear resistant compound will be grey in colour and have a Shore D hardness of 80 (according to DIN 53281-83).
Cured Plastic Metal WP withstands temperatures between -35ºC and 120ºC and has a mean compressive strength of 51 MPa (measured at 25ºC according to DIN 53281-83).
Weicon Plastic Metal WP is available in either 2kg or 10kg kits from your local Associated Gaskets. Both kit sizes contain both hardener and activator in the correct proportions as well as a mixing spatula and disposable plastic gloves.
