Steel /Underwater Stick "HOLDENBOND"


A 2‐part epoxy putty stick which repairs leaks, holes, cracks in metal, fiberglass, concrete, and ceramics.

Intended Use:

Repairs cracks and breaks in tanks and drums. Plumbing and pipe repair. Repairing machinery and equipment.

Product features:

Bonds to wet surfaces
Can be machined, drilled, or tapped using conventional metalworking tools

Surface Preparation:

1. Thoroughly clean the surface with HOLDENBOND ® Conditioner to remove all oil, grease, and dirt.
2. Grit blast surface area with 8‐40 mesh grit, or grind with a coarse wheel or abrasive disc pad, to create increased surface area for better adhesion (Caution: An abrasive disc pad can only be used provided white mesh is revealed). Desired profile is 3‐5mil, including defined edges (do not ‘feather‐edge” epoxy).
Note: For metals exposed to sea water or other salt solution, grit‐blast and high‐pressure‐water‐blast the area, then leave overnight to allow any salts in the metal to “sweat” to the surface. Repeat blasting to “sweat out” all soluble salts. Perform chloride contamination test to determine soluble salt content (should be no more than 40ppm).
3. Clean surface again with HOLDENBOND ® conditioner to remove all traces of oil, grease, dust, or other foreign substances from the grit
4. Repair surface as soon as possible to eliminate any changes or surface contaminants.
WORKING CONDITIONS: Ideal application temperature is 55°F(12°C) to 90°F(32°C). In cold working conditions, heat repair area to 100‐
110°F(37‐ 43°C) immediately prior to applying epoxy to dry off any moisture, contamination, or solvents, as well as to assist epoxy in
maximum adhesion properties.
