Terracotta Milliput - 113.4g
Terracotta Milliput is suitable for the repair of terracotta pots, garden urns and for damaged brickwork and quarry tiles both internally and externally. Terracotta Milliput has been featured in the gardening sections of national newspapers and leading gardening magazines. Suitable for:.
- Modelmaking and sculpturing
- Garden Urns
- Pots and Statuettes
- Damaged Brickwork
- Quarry Tiles
All grades of Milliput are frost, heat and water resistant. Ideal for external work. Why Milliput – it is:
- Self hardening
- Tough and durable
- Highly adhesive to most materials
- Water and chemical resistant
- Sets under water and is electrically insulating
- Moulds like putty – sets like rock!
The two sticks have a long shelf life but once mixed the resultant putty is at first soft and highly adhesive and then gradually hardens. Speed of hardening is dependent on temperature and at normal tepmperatures (20-25°C) Milliput becomes rock hard in three to four hours. After setting hard Milliput continues to cure and is fully cured after an elapse of time equal to setting time at the same temperature. Once fully cured Milliput can be machined, drilled, tapped, turned, filed, sawn, sandpapered and painted immediatelu it has set. (it is advisable to wear eye protection during this process).
Milliput is an excellent adhesive and will bond any of the following to itself or to any of the others – wood, brick, cement, metals, concrete, plastics, glass, etc., but not be used where a paste, mucilage or thin glue is indicated. Milliput will set under water and is heat resistant up to 130°C.
Instructions for use:
- If you have not used Milliput before we suggest that you make yourself familiar with it's behaviour before attempting a repair. Take a small slice, say ¼ '', from each part, mix them and roll into small ball. Flatten it to the shape of a coin and observe it over 2 to 3 hours. Not how sticky and adhesive it is when first mixed. After ½ hour it becomes rubbery and less tacky. In about 1 hour it can be cut into shap with knife ot scissors. In 2-3 hours it becomes quite hard and tack free. Overnight it becomes rock hard.
- Mix together equal parts of each stick from the pack. Knead and roll in the hands for at least 5 minutes until the colours merge and become uniform and no streaks can be seen, then mix for another minute. This is most important when mixing Superfine White Milliput as the sticks of this grade are virtually the same colour. The surfaces to which the putty is applied should be free from grease and dirt. Smooth surfaces will improve adhesion. The putty may now be applied and will set hard in three to four hours without shrinking.
- Att all stages from initial mixing to final setting Milliput responds to the use of water. To aid manipulation and avoid sticking, fingers and tools should be kept moistened with water. There are certain instances when work may be carried out in a gentle stream of water under a tap. To obtain a smooth finish, mould or apply Milliput and then immediately wipe and smooth gently with wet finger or with a fine textured moist cloth.
- When tools have been used for applying or contouring Milliput they should be cleaned immediately after use with a wet rag or paper. If the putty is allowed to harden on it will be almost impossible to remove.
- In the putty state (i.e. before setting) Milliput, like most chemicals in domestic use, may cause irritation to sensitive skins. When mixing the two components it is advisable to use rubber gloves or throw-away polythene gloves. When rubber gloves have been used wash them immediately after use, and whilst still on the hands, using running water. If the hands have been used for mixing or manipulating Milliput wash them immediately after use with toilet soap and warm water.
- Milliput should be stored in cool, dry conditions.
