Metal Repair Paste
Two Component Epoxy Engineering Repair Compound
100MRP is a high performance multi-purpose synthetic metal repair compound specifically developed for metal repairs requiring good mechanical strength combined with easy machining properties.
100MRP is formulated on a complex range of epoxy resins combined with a polyamino curing system reinforced with a phosphor steel alloy to enhance the corrosion and chemical resistance of the whole system.
100MRP can be applied to any damaged component in one easy application and is ideal for repairing worn shafts, oversized bearing housings, cracked cases and blocks, damaged flanges, sloppy keyways and scored rams.
Before proceeding, please read the following information carefully to ensure that the correct application procedure is fully understood.
Heavy contamination due to oil or grease must first be removed using MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone)
All loose material, rust and surface contaminants, including existing coatings, must be removed and the surface roughened by using an angle grinder, needle gun or abrasive blasting. Where grinding or needle gunning is used, the surface should be cross-scored to improve adhesion. Care must be taken, when angle grinding, to avoid polishing rather than roughening metal surfaces. Where possible, abrasive blasting is the preferred surface preparation, especially in fluid flow repairs.
For the best results abrasive blast clean all surfaces to a minimum Sa2½ to Sa3 with a blast profile of 75 – 125 microns
Surfaces should finally be carefully degreased using MEK. Cloths should be frequently changed to avoid spreading contamination. On deeply pitted surfaces or porous castings, MEK should be worked into the surface by brush and washed off using excess cleaner.
Parts (for example, threads or bearing surfaces) which must remain in position during application but must not adhere to 100MRP must be coated with Release Agent prior to application of the 100MRP
100MRP is a two component solvent free material comprising base and activator components which must be mixed together prior to use.
Measure 3 volumes of base component and 1 volume activator component onto a clean mixing board or other suitable surface. The two components should then be thoroughly mixed until completely streak free.
The mixed material should be used within 25 minutes of mixing at 20°C (68°F). This time will be reduced at higher temperatures and extended at lower temperatures.
The mixed material should be pressed firmly onto the prepared area, working the material into any cracks and surface defects. When 100MRP is being used to bond two surfaces together, both surfaces should be coated with the material. The two pieces should then be pressed firmly together and clamped in position until the product has set, any excess material squeezed out should be scraped away before the 100MRP. begins to cure.
When Reinforcing Tape is being used to strengthen the repairs the tape should either be impregnated with 100MRP or the tape should be layed over the 100MRP. surface and stippled into the material before it cures, then additional 100MRP applied over the surface.
Once 100MRP. has reached ‘initial set’ the material can be separated from the surfaces treated with Release Agent. Once 100MRP has cured for a minimum of 2 hours at 20°C (68°F), sanding, grinding and machining etc. can be carried out using standard engineering practice.
When machining 100MRP a typical Lathe set up would be:
- Surface Cutting Speed 200 ft/minute
- Feed Rate (roughing) 50 thou/rev (finishing) 10 thou/rev
- All equipment must be cleaned IMMEDIATELY after use, with MEK.
