  • Special type of epoxy putty filled with Stainless Steel.
  • Can be mixed, shaped and applied by hand before setting hard.
  • Coloured to match stainless steel, long lasting and non-corroding.
  • NSF Approved for use in Potable Water Applications.

Stainless Steel Repair Sticks are a fast, versatile and long-lasting option for repairing and sealing stainless steel and other metal parts. These two-part epoxy putties are manufactured from epoxy resin with stainless steel fillers. They bond well to most surface types, set hard and are NSF approved for use in drinking water applications.

Our Stainless Repair Sticks are very fast curing (35% after just 10 minutes). Once they’re fully cured, they also have excellent physical strength, good temperature resistance (120°C) and withstand most chemicals and media.

Manufactured by Weicon in Germany, our Stainless Steel Repair Sticks are used for a whole range of different applications. Some of the more popular ones and more details on this repair putties capabilities are included below:

NSF ANSI 61 Approval for use in Potable Water Applications.NSF Approved for Potable Water Applications.

Weicon Stainless Steel Repair Sticks have been certified in accordance with NSF/ANSI 61 for use in applications that process drinking (potable) water.

Can Be Modified Once Set.

Fully cured Stainless Repair Sticks have a hardness rating of 75 Shore D. To put that in perspective, most hard hats measure about 80 Shore D. The fact it sets this hard means you can machine this putty once it’s cured. More specifically, Stainless Steel Repair Stick can be…

  • Sanded
  • Tapped
  • Drilled
  • Filed

This lets you finish your repair job down to tight tolerances of give the putty an ultra-smooth finish. Since it’s coloured to match stainless, it also provides a pathway to minimising the visibility of any repair work. That said, since it’s an epoxy, Stainless Steel Repair Sticks can be painted over once their fully cured if required.

Stainless Steel Repair Stick Cut, Knead Apply Graphic - No Tools Needed for this Epoxy Putty.No Tools Required.

Like all our Repair Putties, Stainless Repair Stick does not require any tools (unless you count a pair of rubber gloves). Just cut off the amount you want, knead the two parts until they’re a single colour and apply.

That’s it. Repair Stick Stainless Steel will set hard (like metal).

Stick to a Range of Materials (especially metals).

For all the most common uses of Stainless Repair Stick, it needs to stick to a surface to work. You can rely on this epoxy putty to do so as it has excellent compatibility with a variety of different surface types. The most common ones are covered in the table below:

Metal (e.g. stainless steel, brass, cast iron, aluminium) Highly Compatible
Hard Plastics* (e.g. epoxy laminates, rigid PVC) Compatible
Wood (e.g. oak, beech, spruce, balsa) Compatible
Derived Timber Products (e.g. plywood, MDF) Compatible
Fibre Reinforced Materials (e.g. GFRP, CFRP, Fibreglass) Compatible
Glass, Ceramics Compatible
Stone (e.g. granite, brick, concrete, marble) Compatible
Rubber Elastomers Not Compatible

*Performance will vary depending on the exact type of plastic being bonded. Generally, low surface energy plastics will be much harder to bond to then high surface energy (such as rigid PVC).

As you can see, one thing it doesn’t bond well to is rubber so that should be avoided.

To get the best adhesion possible, we recommended giving the bonding surface a good clean before applying the putty. If you’re sticking to a really smooth surface, adhesion will be enhanced by roughening the bonding surface a bit first.

Electrical Insulation Properties and Chemical Resistance.

For some applications, it’s important to only use compounds that have good dielectric strength. Since it’s based on filled epoxy, Stainless Steel Repair Stick has good electrical properties. It has a dielectric strength rating of 3 kV/mm (tested in accordance with ASTM D149) and an electrical resistance rating of 5 · 1011 Ω/cm (ASTM D257).

On the chemical resistance front, Stainless Repair Stick is resistant to many common fluids and media; including…

  • Salt and Fresh Water
  • Diesel Fuel Oil
  • Heating Oil
  • Petrol
  • Chlorinated Water
  • Greases, Oils and Waxes

This is just a small sample of the full chemical resistance table. More information on this repair putties capabilities are included on our Stainless-Steel Repair Stick Tech Data Sheet.

Applications for Stainless Steel Repair Sticks.

This versatile metal repair putty is used in all kinds of applications spanning the DIY, commercial and heavy industrial sectors. Some of the more common uses include:

  • Filling gaps and holes in stainless steel surfaces.
  • Repairs to stainless pipes and ducting.
  • Repairs to tanks, containers and pressure vessels.
  • Fixing pumps and pump housings.
  • Building up surfaces and pipe connections.
  • Sealing and repairing food holding containers.
  • Sealing larger gaps in food preparation areas.
  • Repairs, hole patching and reconditioning of fuel and water tanks.
  • Fixing filling and packing machines used in food preparation.
  • Repairs in the marine sector.
  • Fixing leaks on drinking water pipes and tanks.
  • Repairs to metals, plastics, ceramic surfaces, glass, stone, bricks, wood and more.

Do I need to do anything special to the surface before sticking the repair stick?

Not really. Just make sure it’s clean and free of dirt, dust or grease (especially true in food areas). If you’re sticking to really smooth surfaces and it’s possible, adhesion will be improved if you roughen the bonding area a little first. Just a bit of sandpaper will often do the job here.

How long does it take to completely cure?

Stainless Steel Repair Sticks will be fully cured in about 24 hours. We say about because this depends a lot on the conditions they’re curing in. The 24-hour estimate is based on a 20°C cure environment. Warmer temperatures will speed this up while lower temperatures will extend it. If you’re using the repair sticks for repairs in a cool room or a fridge you will need to turn the equipment off to allow for curing as temperatures below about 6°C may result in little to no cure.

We really should stress as well that these times are for full cure. At 20°C Weicon Stainless Steel Repair Sticks will achieve handling strength (20% cure) in about 10 minutes and be 50% cured (mechanical strength) after 60 minutes.

Does it shrink?

Only a very tiny bit. Linear shrinkage is less than 1% during the curing process.

What do I cut bits off with?

Pretty much anything. Really, a butter knife will do the trick here. One thing worth remembering, since pot life is so quick make sure you just cut off and knead the amount you’re going to use immediately. Also, be sure to clean you’re cutting tool as quickly as possible as parts of the putty can stick and cure on it.
