Our Copper Repair Stick has a very quick pot life (of just 3 minutes) which allows for incredibly quick application and adhesion and minimal downtime. This grade is typically used for the repair of cracks holes and leakages (even on wet or damp surfaces) on:
- Pipes and elbows
- Fittings and flanges
- Copper gutters and sheets
- Water heaters and water tanks
- Hot and cold water piping
- Refrigerating and air conditioning equipment
- Plus many more applications in the installation and maintenance sectors
Weicon Repair Stick Copper exhibits excellent adhesion to a wide range of metals (including aluminium, cast iron, brass and stainless steel) and is also used on hard plastics, fibre reinforced materials, wood, derived timber products, glass, ceramics and stone. It is not suggested for use on rubber materials.
Weicon Repair Stick Copper has been tested in accordance with NSF (non-food compounds registration program) standards.
Due to their unique design, Weicon Repair Sticks are incredibly easy to use. They ship in sturdy, plastic tubes and that are easily opened and resealed. One part of this two part product surrounds the other so the procedure is as simple cutting off the desired amount, kneading it and using. Prior to this surfaces should be clean and dry (we suggest Weicon Cleaner S or Plastic Cleaner for this task) whilst smooth surfaces should be slightly roughened to assist with adhesion.
Weicon Repair Stick Copper is manufactured from epoxy resin with copper fillers and, once cured is copper in colour. Repair Stick Copper is capable of bearing loads (50% strength) after around 60 minutes (depending on cure conditions) and cures with very little shrinkage. Once fully cured, Weicon Repair Stick Copper withstands temperatures between -50ºC and 120ºC (as well as short-term spikes to 150ºC). It is used for covering gaps up to 15mm.
AG offers this high quality grade in both 57gm and 115gm tubes.
