Epoxy industrial pastes
MIX2FIX® GP Aluminum: A general-purpose epoxy with a high content of aluminum particles (31% aluminum) used to make tough, permanent repairs to metal, ceramics, concrete, wood, and some hard plastics. Cured product looks like aluminum.
MIX2FIX® Bronze: A general-purpose, bronze-colored, non-corroding epoxy for tough, permanent repairs to bronze and other non-ferrous metals, ceramics, porcelain, concrete, wood, and some hard plastics.
MIX2FIX® GP Ceramic: Optimally blended with ceramic beads and silicon carbide particles, cures at ambient temperatures to an extremely hard-wearing surface and provides protective coatings and abrasion-resistant repairs for equipment such as pipes, chutes, impeller bodies, and screw elevators.
MIX2FIX® Machinable Ceramic: A dry-film lubricant product reinforced with superfine ceramic. Cures at ambient temperatures to produce a self-lubricating, impact- and wear-resistant finish that does not rust.
MIX2FIX® GP Steel: A general-purpose epoxy containing a high content of steel particles (35% corrosion-resistant steel alloy) to make tough, permanent repairs that are rust-free and can be treated like steel.
MIX2FIX® FC Steel: A fast-curing epoxy containing a higher content of steel particles than MIX2FIX GP Steel (40% corrosion-resistant steel alloy) for tough, permanent repairs that are rust-free and can be treated like steel.
MIX2FIX® LV Steel (formerly PSI-367): A reduced viscosity, semi-liquid version of MIX2FIX FC Steel with the same high proportion of corrosion-resistant steel particles. Ideal for bonding most ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Cured product looks like steel and will not rust.
MIX2FIX® High Temperature: A room-temperature-curing epoxy formulated to bond and repair materials that will be exposed to temperatures up to 500°F (260 °C).
MIX2FIX® GP Gel Adhesive: A non-sag, general-purpose epoxy that bonds well to a wide variety of substrates. Bonds well to teak, fiberglass, steel, aluminum, glass and most hard plastics, making it especially useful in marine applications.
MIX2FIX® FC Gray Adhesive: Gray modified epoxy adhesive that cures rapidly at room temperature with exceptional adhesion to a wide variety of substrates. No volatile solvents, does not shrink upon curing.
MIX2FIX® FC Translucent Adhesive:Modified translucent epoxy adhesive that cures rapidly at room temperature with exceptional adhesion to a wide variety of substrates. No volatile solvents, does not shrink upon curing.
Kneadaseal® SL Electrical Sealing/Potting Compound: This self-leveling, epoxy sealing paste provides water- and vapor-tight seals for cable fittings and other electrical devices. Packed in a 225ml double-barrel cartridge for convenient mixing, dispensing and application.
Sealants and adhesives
