USES: Use for heavy filling and repair of damaged panels up to ¼” in depth.
APPROVED SUBSTRATES: Steel, galvanized and other zinc coated steel, SMC, fiberrglass and aluminium. Can be used for cosmetic fiberglass and composite repairs. For structural repairs prone to high degrees of stress and flexibility, use a fiber reinforced filler.
PREPARATION: Clean and degrease the entire panel to be repaired with soap and water, followed by a mild cleaning solvent. Thoroughly dry surface before repairing. Keep the repair area small. Grind repair area with 40 – 50 grit for large areas, or 80 grit for small areas, removing only the paint. Use 80 grit to remove the 40-50 grit marks and to featheredge the paint. Featheredge inward toward the repair.
MIXING: Stir the body filler before using. Knead the cream hardener. Measure hardener 2% by weight (add a ribbon of cream hardener from edge to edge across the center of a 4” diameter puddle). Puddles larger than 4” in diameter will require additional hardener. Mix thoroughly until uniform color is achieved.
APPLICATION: Apply in thin layers and spread smoothly. Do not blob on or apply all at once.
FINISH: Sand down body filler with 40 grit to 80 grit sandpaper (use 40 grit as an initial cut only when necessary to knock down high spots). Avoid coarse sand scratches outside the filler area during the initial cut. Finish sand body filler with 80 grit. Sand bare metal and featheredge with 180 grit to remove 80 grit scratches.
