MIX2FIX® Bronze

Technical Data

MIX2FIX Bronze is a general-purpose, bronze-colored, non-corroding, two-component epoxy industrial repair paste for tough, permanent repairs to bronze and other non-ferrous metals, ceramics, porcelain, concrete, wood, and some hard plastics (does not adhere to polyethylene, polypropylene, or PTFE).

MIX2FIX Bronze spreads easily and fills large and small gaps on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. It is not intended for structural applications. When fully cured, conventional metalworking techniques can be used to file, machine, drill, sand, and paint the finished repair. Cured color is Metallic Bronze.

How to use:
 

To achieve optimum adhesion, clean surfaces of all contaminants using a solvent wipe. Lightly abrading or grit blasting the surface prior to cleaning will help ensure adhesion. Do not apply mixed product at temperatures below 41°F (5°C).

MIX2FIX Bronze can be mixed by hand or machine mixed. Wear impermeable gloves when mixing or handling uncured product. Use different utensils to measure out equal volumes or weights of the resin and hardener to avoid contamination of material remaining in the container. Mix the two components together for at least 3 minutes to a uniform bronze color. Using a spatula or palette knife apply the mixed product to the prepared surface within 25 to 30 minutes. Remove excess material before product begins to set. Containers of unmixed material can be resealed for future use.

MIX2FIX Bronze will start setting within an hour at 68°F (20°C), depending on volume and temperature: the greater the volume (or higher the temperature), the faster it will set. Allow 4 to 6 hours before handling and 48 hours for full cure at room temperature. After 48 hours the application can be filed and polished.

For advice on building up multiple layers, contact PSI's technical services department.
