Weicon Plastic Metal WR2 is a high strength, mineral-filled epoxy resin putty with outstanding wear resistant properties. This putty is typically used for repairs or protective coatings in situations where a castable compound (such as our Weicon Plastic Metal WR) cannot be used. Typical applications include:
- Repairs to conveyors, guides and slide ways
- Where rolling or sliding movements cause wear
- Preventing wear on metal surfaces that are exposed to extreme abrasion and erosion
- As a wear resistant under-coating ahead of Weicon Plastic Metal Ceramic BL
Weicon Plastic Metal WR2 can be applied in layers up to 10mm in thickness and cures with very little shrinkage (0.025%). Pot life at 20ºC is about 45 minutes and, though it has a 100:25 mix ratio (resin : hardener), mixing is easy because the kit is supplied with the correct mixing proportions; simply pour all of the hardener into the resin container and mix thoroughly.
Weicon Plastic Metal WR2 will cure to the point of handling mechanical loads in approximately 16 hours and achieve final hardness in about 24 hours (depending on curing environment). Once fully cured, this high quality product will exhibit good compressive strength (71 MPA at 25ºC according to DIN 53281-83) and hard a Shore D hardness of 82 (again, at 25ºC according to DIN 53281-83).
Plastic Metal WR has good sliding properties and withstands exposure to temperatures between -35ºC and 120ºC and is dark grey in colour.
Weicon Plastic Metal WR2 is available in two different size kits from Associated Gaskets: 0.5kg and 2kg. Both contain the correct quantities of resin and activator as well as a pair of disposable gloves, instructions and a plastic mixing spatula.
To make mixing simple and easy extra space has been left in the resin container so that the activator can be added and mixed.
