|For a 1 kg. unit mix at 70 F, pot life is approximately 30 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.|
|Storage||Store in dry area in closed containers between 50 F and 110 F. Shelf life at these conditions is greater than one year.|
|EXP THIXSET is a trowel-on rebuilding compound that can be applied up to 1/4 inch without slumping. Thicker applications can be achieved by multiple layers. Theoretical coverage at 40 mils is 36 cubic inches per kg.|
|Mixing & Application|
Mix ALL of Part A with ALL of Part B. Mixing may be done in a container large enough to hold both the base and hardener. The selected container 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 F before mixing.
For best results, do not apply:
|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.
