One of our top products is a filling/fairing putty called OEM Super Poly-Fill. It’s now being sold through Amazon.com and Ebay.com so we wanted to take a moment and give you some tips from the pros on how to make sure your project benefits from this product.
- It uses MEK-P just like Polyester Resin does, so you want to refer to the catalyst chart for mixing ratios:
- Do your surface prep! Make sure you clean the surface, remove any paint or rust and rough the surface with some sandpaper to get the best adhesion.
- The product working time is 12-18 minutes, IF catalyzed at 1% and if it’s the magic temperature of 77 degrees in your working area. If it’s hotter out, and we all know it will be, our pros recommend cooling the product down before use to extend the working time.
- If you are using it to fill holes, always fill a little high and plan for a slight amount of shrinkage. Once it dries, you can easily smooth it out with a little sandpaper.
