Sylmasta AB Original is a versatile, super-strength epoxy putty with a work time of up to two hours for larger and more complex pipe repair applications.
AB Original is used to seal holes and cracks caused by corrosion to pipes made from steel, cast iron, copper, PVC plastic, lead, ceramic, and many other materials. When applied to damaged areas, it restores the surface profile of pipelines and improves integrity.
It is used to make underwater pipe repairs, bonds well to wet surfaces, is suitable in interior or exterior settings, and has high chemical resistance. In chemically aggressive environments, it can be used as a sacrificial layer.
The long work time of Sylmasta AB Original allows for more of the putty to be mixed in one go, minimising waste and allowing significant areas of damage to be repaired without the prospect of the putty curing before the application has been completed. Sylmasta recommend AB Original to clients operating in hot climates because of its cure time.
AB Original can be purchased in bulk quantities for larger pipe repair projects. Three colours of epoxy putty are available for colour matching repairs to existing structures. Sylmasta also have the facility to customise AB Original; if you require a specific colour, then please contact Sylmasta for a quote.
How to carry out a pipe repair using Sylmasta AB Original Epoxy Putty
Sylmasta AB comes in two separate parts. You mix part A and B together in even quantities by volume or weight and knead by hand until thoroughly mixed.
Whilst soft, Sylmasta AB is pushed into holes and cracks on pipes where it will cure, sealing leaks. It smooths over areas damaged by corrosion and pitting and provides a chemically resistant layer to sensitive areas of pipework.
AB Original has a two hour work time and achieves a full cure in 24 hours. It is resistant to water, chemicals, and temperature extremes.
Sylmasta AB contains no solvents or VOC’s, is non-flammable and releases no noxious fumes. It will not shrink or pull away when setting. The unused portion stays fresh for future use when saved in its original package.
Repairs made with Sylmasta AB Original Epoxy Putty can be overwrapped with SylWrap HD Pipe Repair Bandage. SylWrap HD provides an impact-resistant, rock-hard layer of protection for a high-pressure repair.
