Plasticmetal

Elite Repair Product for Castings


Plasticmetal was engineered for the quick, high quality repair of porosities, defects and blow holes that occur in castings, and to repair machining errors and worn areas in cast iron, steel, aluminum, and other alloy products. It has been used successfully in hundreds of applications worldwide.

Plasticmetal is a fast-hardening polymer-bound metal material. It is an exceptionally flexible repair system which can be mixed and applied in small quantities and combined with several different hardeners to achieve the viscosity, curing speed, appearance, and performance characteristics required. The product is formulated for a "free mixing" ratio, so it can be applied as a liquid, a putty - or any level in-between. It can be applied in-place and does not require special tools.

Plasticmetal is available in 12 metal powder formulas, including cast iron, steel, aluminum, bronze, brass, copper and others. It is machineable after hardening, and is highly resistant to physical and thermal stresses. It provides excellent adhesion on all metals, and is compatible with applications involving continuous high temperatures and aggressive chemicals.

  • High chemical resistance
  • Tenacious adhesion to metal and metal alloys
  • Temperature resistance to 250°C (482°F) continuous; up to 500°C (932°F) short-term
  • Short cure time
  • Free mixing ratio enables putty to liquid viscosities
  • Machines like metal
  • Cured material can be varnished
Base Powders for DIAMANT plasticmetal
All material values are average values and vary due to mixing ratio, material quantity and enviromnental conditions. The mentioned material values are based on normal conditions (STP) of 20°C (273K/31,73°F) and 1013mbar (1013hPa).
