What is Metal Putty?
Metal Putty is a two component, ambient-temperature curing epoxy putty. The metal putty is suitable for a wide application range, convenient-to-use, non-sagging with high bond strength. Metal Putty consists of two components (resin & hardener) each separately packed.
How strong is metal putty?
With a tensile strength usually around 900, this stuff when molded into any shape creates a steel reinforced non rusting putty that when applied, will repair and rebuild just about anything
How to Do Metal Repair Without Welding
Wear your safety glasses, face shield and leather work gloves.
Attach the wire wheel to the 4-inch grinder.
Lower your face shield and thoroughly clean the metal. The metal needs to be shiny and free of corrosion and contaminants that will interfere with the bond between the epoxy and the surface of the metal.
Place the small block of wood on the outside of the repair and gently tap the inside of the repair with the hammer to close the hole in the metal. You can skip this step if you are repairing a rust hole or the inside of the metal is inaccessible.
Scuff the area around the repair with the 200-grit sandpaper to give the epoxy a good bonding surface.
Mix a portion of epoxy, per the application instructions, to cover an area twice the size of the repair you are making in the metal.
Forcibly press the epoxy into the repair and onto the surface of the metal. Work the epoxy with your fingers until all the air has been removed from the repair area and the epoxy lies flat on the metal’s surface.
Allow the epoxy to cure as specified in instructions.
Attach the 4-inch diameter flapper wheel to the grinder.
Grind down the cured epoxy with the flapper wheel to smooth out the epoxy repair.
Blend the epoxy with the 80-grit sandpaper to create a seamless metal repair.
