MIX2FIX® GP Ceramic

Technical Data

MIX2FIX GP Ceramic is a mineral- and ceramic-filled, two-part epoxy repair paste that cures at ambient temperatures to produce a wear-resistant finish that will not rust. It spreads easily and will fill large and small gaps on both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

MIX2FIX GP Ceramic can be successfully applied to metal, ceramics, tiles, concrete, wood and some hard plastics (does not adhere to polyethylene, polypropylene, or PTFE). It is not intended for structural applications. When fully cured, conventional metalworking techniques can be used to machine, file, drill, and polish the finished repair. Cured color is Dark Blue/gray.

How to use:
 

To achieve optimum adhesion, clean surfaces of all contaminants using a solvent wipe. Abrading the surface with a fine emery cloth prior to cleaning will improve adhesion. Do not apply mixed product at temperatures below 41°F (5°C).

MIX2FIX GP Ceramic can be hand or machine mixed. Wear impermeable gloves when mixing or handling uncured product. Use only the amount of product needed for the job at hand. Containers of unmixed material can be resealed for future use. Measure out 4 parts resin to 1 part hardener using different utensils for each to avoid contamination of material remaining in the container. Mix the two components together for at least 3 minutes until a uniform dark blue/gray color is achieved. Using a spatula or palette knife apply the mixed product to the prepared surface within 10 to 15 minutes to ensure maximum adhesion. Remove excess material before product begins to set.

It is recommended that repairs be completed within 30 minutes to avoid disturbing the application as it begins to set. The application 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 6 hours before handling and 48 hours before returning to service. It can be shaped, filed and polished after 48 hours.

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