New Abrasion Compound Protects Equipment Against Extreme Impact
DANVERS, MA - Wear Guard(TM) High Impact from Devcon is a new, high-density epoxy putty for repairing and protecting equipment subject to extreme impact, flexing, or abrasion. A special nonVOC formulation containing a flexible acrylate and micro-alumina ceramic beads, it provides outstanding compressive strength and wear resistance, extending the life of slurry pumps, pipe elbows, scrubbers, pulverizers, screens, screw conveyors, chutes, hoppers, and other equipment. Exceptional adhesion eliminates the need to use "expanded metal" even in demanding applications, saving downtime and money.
100% solids, Wear Guard High Impact has a pot life of 45 minutes at 75° F. Recommended applied thickness for repairs is at least ¼", and on vertical surfaces the putty can be troweled up to ¾" thick without sagging. After seven days it has a hardness of 85 Shore D (ASTM D2240), compressive strength of 7250 psi (ASTM D695), modulus of elasticity of 3.36 psi x 105 inches (ASTM D638), adhesive tensile shear of 2567 psi (ASTM D1002), and flexural strength of 6144 psi (ASTM D790). Coatings withstand service temperatures up to 140° F wet, 300° F dry.
