Milliput is a versatile manipulative two-part epoxy putty which can be used for almost anything! It is pliable and easily shaped after mixing, and sets rock hard in 2-3 hours.
Here's a few applications to name a few:
- Restoration and repair
- Underwater applications
- Adhere to, seal or bond metals, wood, plastics, glass, tile, brick, cement, etc
- DIY repairs - picture frames, terracotta pots, garden urns, brickwork, quarry tiles (internal and external)
How to use:
- Take equal sized amounts from each stick, and blend together by rolling, kneading and folding around 30 times until the colour is uniform and streak-free.
- It can then be manipulated like modelling clay, and used as needed.
- The Milliput will go rock hard in 2-3 hours at normal room temperature, and will not shrink.
- Once set, it can be turned, sawn, drilled, tapped, filed, sandpapered, painted, or cellulose sprayed.
How to repair a terracotta pot:
- Scrub the pot to remove grease and dirt.
- Knead equal amounts of the two sticks for 5 minutes until the colours become uniform. Mix slightly more Milliput than you think will be required.
- Moisten the crack and firmly apply the Milliput, pressing with your fingers and thumbs.
- Push the two pieces of the pot together with the putty stood proud of the crack
- Use a spatula to work the putty into the crack. Keep the tools and putty moist. A sponge/wet cloth comes in useful.
- Leave for an hour or so until the Milliput reaches the stage when it will cut cleanly with a sharp knife. Wet a sharp knife and cut off the surplus.
- The next day, mix sufficient Milliput to cover the area of the crack on the inside. With a wet spatula feather the Milliput onto the good part of the pot. Leave until fully hardened.
To create a colour of your choice, you can:
- Blend different milliput colours together
- Mix a small amount of powder pigment (so that the mixture doesn't become too dry and crumbly)
- Liquid colourings, like enamel paints, oil paints, spirit based-dyes or pigments can also be used to colour Milliput, but liquids or pastes may be difficult to introduce into the putty. Small quantities should be used to avoid creating a very wet mix that may be difficult to mix.
Please note: Milliput may cause an allergic skin reaction.
Milliput has a storage life of approximately 2 years when stored in cool, dry conditions. Place unused epoxy putty in polythene bags and re-seal. Storage at high temperatures or high humidity may reduce shelf life.
