Frank predicts putty approval trend

Published:  02 July, 2010

Spies Hecker has developed the Raderal Special Putty Set 2011 designed to cover welds, gaps and rivets on steel substrates.

The polyester metal putty set consists of Raderal Special Putty Powder 2011 and Raderal Special Putty Hardener 2012, which are mixed in a ratio of 2:1. Processing takes four to six minutes. Spies Hecker recommends air drying (15-20 minutes) combined with additional IR drying (15-20 minutes) for optimum throughput.
