Product description

Chester Metal Special is a universal two-component epoxy-metal thixotropic composite. The material contains modified epoxy-novolac resins, metallic and fibre fillers. It is designed for filling, rebuilding and joining metal surfaces operating at elevated temperatures. Cures at room temperature.

Examples of recommended applications:

  • stopping leaks in central heating systems
  • rebuilding of worn bearing seats
  • reconstruction of worn journals for rolling bearings
  • stopping leaks in tanks, cracked bodies, e.g. engines, and leaks in all welds
  • restoration of truncated threads and damaged splineways
  • sealing of cast iron, steel and non-ferrous metals
  • rebuilding of corroded heat exchanger bottoms
  • repair of embedded elements in concrete.
  • resurface of flanges
  • bonding, pasting.

For complete technical information see the Technical Data Sheet (TDS).
