Sylmasta AB Rapid 5 Minute Epoxy Putty is a fast-setting, super-strength putty which enables quick repair to be made to large areas of damage on pipe of all materials.
AB Rapid 5 Minute is used to quickly 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 has good chemical resistance, can be used in interior or exterior settings, and is ceramic-filled to be extremely hard wearing. AB Rapid 5 Minute can be purchased in bulk quantities, making it more suitable for rapid pipe repair applications where large amounts of putty are required compared to Superfast Epoxy Putty Sticks, which have a similar work time but are only available in the smaller stick format.
AB Rapid 5 Minute is available in white or black to colour match repairs to existing structures Sylmasta also have the facility to customise AB Rapid 5 Minute; if you require a specific colour, then please contact Sylmasta for a quote.
How to carry out a quick pipe repair using Sylmasta AB Rapid 5 Minute Epoxy Putty
Sylmasta AB Rapid 5 Minute 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 Rapid 5 Minute is pushed into holes and cracks on pipes where it will cure, sealing leaks. It is smoothed over areas damaged by corrosion and pitting, or to provide a chemically resistant layer to sensitive areas of pipework.
AB Rapid has a five minute work time and achieves a full cure in 24 hours. It is resistant to water, chemicals, and temperature extremes.
Sylmasta AB Rapid 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 Rapid 5 Minute 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.
For more complex pipe repair applications which require a putty with a longer working time or for underwater applications, please see Sylmasta AB Original Epoxy Putty. AB Original has a two hour work time, allowing for more putty to be mixed and applied without the prospect of curing before the task is completed. It also has excellent adhesion to wet surfaces.
