Milliput is the trade name for our epoxy putty. We produce five grades: Standard Yellow/Grey, Silver Grey, Superfine White, Terracotta, and the latest addition - Milliput Black. Each grade is presented in similar packs containing 2 x 56.7. sticks and the general instructions for preparation and usage are the same.
The two sticks have a long shelf life but once mixed the resultant putty is at first soft and highly adhesive and then gradually hardens. Speed of hardening is dependant on temperature and at normal temperatures (20-25C) Milliput becomes rock hard in three to four hours. By the application of heat the setting time can be reduced to a few minutes.
After setting hard Milliput continues to cure and is fully cured after an elapse of time equal to the setting time at the same temperature. Once fully cured Milliput can be machined, drilled, tapped, turned, filed, sawn, sandpapered and painted. Milliput can be sandpapered and painted immediately it has set. (it is advisable to wear eye protection during this process).
Milliput is an excellent adhesive and will bond any of the following to itself or to any of the others - wood, brick, cement, metals, concrete, plastics, glass etc, but note that Milliput is not intended as a thin layer adhesive and should not be used where a paste, mucilage or thin glue is indicated. Milliput will set under water and is heat resistant up to 130C.
We recommend Milliput is stored in cool, dry conditions. Please reseal bags after use. Stored correctly this product should remain workable for about 2 years.
"The whole line of Milliput is excellent. Easy to use, 1:1 mix mix until color becomes uniform. Great for making or fixing anything in the model making domain. However the White superfine grade needs some special attention in mixing since both hardener and epoxy are white .Mix and knead in the usual way then let stand for about 20 minutes then mix and knead again, the first kneading will probably be not completely mixed and will result in a "sticky" finish. I learned about this technique from the manufacturers in the UK. I found that the best way to knead was to mix the components in a ball then roll out a snake, this is then braided and rolled again until color is uniform. In my opinion this product (in all its colors) is the best modelling material around, it gives you ample time to reshape something and could be smoothed down by brushing with water or using a wet spatula.Dries rock hard and is sandable."
