Item # SAR, SAR Ceramic Putty

SAR is a versatile easy-to-use rebuilding putty with excellent abrasion and chemical resistance. This product is heavily filled with aluminum oxide and can be built up to an inch in thickness or more. Typical applications are for rebuilding of pump casings, slurry tanks, weld seams or anywhere requiring the restoration of metal components.

Pot Life
For a 1 kg. unit, mix at 70 ºF, pot life is approximately 50 minutes. Higher temperatures or larger mass will shorten this time, lower temperatures or smaller mass will extend it. Pot life can also be extended by spreading the mass out to dissipate heat.
ColorGrey
StorageStore in dry area in closed containers between 50 ºF and 110 ºF. Shelf life at these conditions is greater than one year.
Coverage
SAR is a trowel-on rebuilding compound and can be applied up to 1 inch/coat. Thicker applications can be achieved by multiple layers. Theoretical coverage at 40 mils is 31 cubic inches per kg.
Surface Preparation
  • For maximum adhesion, material should be applied to a firm, clean, dry and abraded surface.
  • Best results will be obtained by abrasive blasting the surface.
  • If blasting is impractical, a grinding wheel, needle gun, or very stiff wire brush may be used.
  • Clean greasy, oily or waxed surfaces with suitable solvent before applying material.
Mixing & Application
Mixing
Mix ALL of Part A with ALL of Part B. Mixing may be done on a large mixing board or container large enough to hold both the base and hardener. The selected mixing surface must be clean and dry. Mix the material thoroughly until no streaks of any kind are visible. If materials are cold, warm them to 70 ºF before mixing.

Cleanup
All mixing and applications tools should be immediately wiped or scraped clean when finished with using.

Application
SAR is best applied with a squeegee, trowel or the plastic applicator supplied with the kit. Press material thoroughly into substrate and insure a completely wetted out surface. Build up to the required thickness with a second pass. Large cracks or holes should be bridged with glass or metal cloth. Reinforcement should be overcoated.

For best results, do not apply:
  • When temperature is below 50 ºF.
  • When humidity is over 90%
  • When there is moisture on the surface
  • When surface temperature is not 5 ºF above dew point

Force Curing
Force cures are recommended for severe service conditions as both the physical and chemical properties are enhanced. Force curing should not start until material has firmly set.

Recommended Force Cure Schedule:
  • 1 hour at 250 ºF
  • 4 hours at 180 ºF
  • 8 hours at 120 ºF


Health and Safety
