Weicon Plastic Metal ST
Weicon Plastic Metal ST is a specialised grade of plastic metal that is easy to use and sets hard. This two part component has a pasty consistency and is made from metal filled epoxy resin. Weicon Plastic Metal ST is specifically designed for use on stainless steel parts and is non-corrosive.
Plastic Metal ST can be applied in layers up to 10mm thick and will be cured enough to handle mechanical loads in approximately 16 hours (full cure will take about 24 hours). This high quality repair compound cures with very little shrinkage (0.02%).
Because of its excellent adhesion, non-corrosive nature and long lasting performance, Weicon Plastic Metal ST is used in a variety of applications. These include:
- Repairs to Stainless Steel Parts and Components
- Patching of Stainless Steel Tanks and Piping
- Repairs to Stainless Steel Containers, Funnels and Flanges.
Once completely cured, Weicon Plastic Metal ST sets hard. Tests conducted in accordance with DIN 53281-83 requirements found that fully cured Plastic Metal SD had a hardness of 80 Shore D, a compressive strength of 80 MPa and a mean tensile strength of 27 MPa.
This grade of plastic metal is grey in coloured once cured and is used in applications where temperatures are between -35ºC and 120ºC.
