Industrial Metal is a metal filled epoxy paste used to rebuild and refurbish damaged and worn metal parts, pipes and machinery

Industrial Metal Epoxy Paste

Where corrosion, chemical attack or other environmental factors have weakened the exterior of a pipe, Industrial Metal is applied to rebuild pipeline thickness back towards original specification. It fills damage caused by impact and pitting, restoring surface profile.

The corrosion-resistant platelets provide excellent protection for surfaces from corrosion and chemical attack, whilst also giving it a smoother finish than regular epoxy pastes when machined. Industrial Metal cures on wet surfaces. As well as metalwork, it can be applied to most plastics and wood.

Industrial Metal has been independently tested to BS 6920 standard, meaning when used in conjunction with a SylWrap Pipe Repair Bandage, it is certified to British standards as safe to use on pipes carrying drinking water.

Away from pipeline applications, it is used to repair and protect pumps, metal castings, automotive bodywork and fills large gaps and gouges.

A 60-minute gel time allows for large quantities to be mixed and carefully applied without the threat of premature curing. Because of its work time, Sylmasta recommend Industrial Metal for applications at higher ambient temperatures.


About

Industrial Metal Epoxy Repair Paste Details

Before applying Industrial Metal, surfaces should be free of paint, rust and grime. The substrate should then be roughened up through either grit blasting or grinding with a coarse wheel or abrasive disk pad.

Full instructions detailing the preparation process can be found on the Technical Data Sheet and are provided with the product.

Industrial Metal should be applied as soon as the preparation procedure is completed. Part A and Part B are mixed together at a 2:1 ratio by weight or volume.

The epoxy paste is then spread over the area requiring repair using a putty knife. Industrial Metal should be pushed in firmly to ensure maximum contact and to avoid trapping air between the paste and the surface.

When adding SylWrap Pipe Repair Bandage for pipe repair applications, the bandage is wrapped over Industrial Metal as soon as the epoxy paste has been applied. SylWrap will provide a rock-hard, impact resistant layer of protection, further strengthening the weakened section of pipeline.

Industrial Metal has a gel time of 60 minutes. It achieves a full cure in 24 hours. It is thixotropic, meaning it will not sag.

It is virtually odourless, with no unpleasant smell compared to other epoxy pastes. Its light consistency makes it easier to mix than stiff, heavy traditional epoxy pastes.

Industrial Metal is temperature resistant to 130°C. For repairs to pipework exposed to extreme temperatures in excess of 130°C, please see Titanium Supergrade HT Epoxy Paste.
