1. Surface preparation: make the surface rough and thoroughly degrease it.
2. Adhesive preparation: mix components A and B in proportion 4:1. Very thoroughly mix the components until uniform sand is obtained.
3. Application: spread thin adhesive layer and carefully rub it in rough metal surface. Apply second layer of required thickness. Sand life is approximately 40 minutes in 20 oC. Initial hardening: approximately 4 hours; complete: approximately 24 hours. After complete hardening MetalFix can be made subject to mechanical working.
