MIX2FIX® High Temperature

Technical Data

MIX2FIX High Temperature is a room-temperature-curing epoxy paste specifically formulated to bond and repair materials that will be exposed to high temperatures. It is designed for industrial maintenance applications in continuous service up to 500°F (260°C). It bonds tenaciously to metals and cures tough and hard.

MIX2FIX High Temperature can be successfully applied to metal, ceramics, tiles, concrete, wood, and some hard plastics (does not adhere to polyethylene, polypropylene, or PTFE). It spreads easily and will fill large and small gaps on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. It is not intended for structural applications. Cured color is Black.

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 High Temperature 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. Using different utensils for the resin and hardener to avoid contamination, measure out 4 parts resin to 1 part hardener by volume. Mix together for at least 3 minutes until a uniform black color is achieved. Use a spatula or palette knife to apply to the prepared surface and remove excess material before the product begins to set. Containers of unmixed material can be resealed for future use.

It is recommended that repairs be completed within 30 minutes to ensure maximum adhesion and to avoid disturbing the application as it begins to set. The application will start to set 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. Curing at higher temperatures (150˚F/65˚C) will provide a stronger bond. Allow 6 hours before handling and 24 hours before returning to service. It can be shaped, filed and polished after 24 hours.

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