Stopper materials

The manufacturer's instructions must always be followed when dealing with all materials! The information given in the following text is data which is independent of the manufacturer, and it should only be used as an indication.

  • 1-component nitro-combination stopper
  • 2-component polyester stopper
  • 2-component plastic stopper

Use suitable primer to protect from corrosion areas which have been sanded bare before applying stopper.

1-component nitro-combination stopper

Nitro-combination stopper has mostly been superseded by 2-component polyester stopper.

Fast drying fine stopper for the smoothing of irregularities.

The working properties of 1-component nitro-combination stopper can be improved by the addition of nitro thinners.

Drying time increases with thickness of the layer.

CAUTIONS:

Do not exceed the quantity of hardener specified by the manufacturer, excess peroxide can cause staining of the paint top coat.

Mix the stopper base and the hardener well to avoid a marble-like effect.

Check that the manufacturer permits use on the substrate to which it will be applied.

2-component polyester stopper is available in coarse and fine grades. The coarse stopper can be used for very uneven areas and surfaces and fine stopper or spray stopper should be applied afterwards.

*lnfrared drying may adversely affect adhesion, therefore check the manufacturer's instructions.

Plastic stopper has a very great tendency to shrink back, so that the edge of the stopper repair becomes visible.

Plastic stoppers are flexible and universally applicable on all types of plastic (except for pure PE and PP, these are plastics which cannot be painted). The manufacturer's instructions must be very exactly followed in order that no adhesion problems occur. A special plastic etch primer is specified for some materials.
