HIGHSIDE Red Epoxy

Red Epoxy is a new high performance, two-part, heat cured, epoxy repair kit for making permanent repairs on all metals and rigid plastics. Red Epoxy is specifically designed to exhibit a distinct color change when heat cured. Red Epoxy will provide a permanent and effective repair on any rigid material which includes but is not limited to, aluminum and aluminum alloys, cast irons, copper and copper alloys (brass, bronze, etc.), magnesium and magnesium alloys, carbon steels, stainless steels, galvanized surfaces, PVC, CPVC, ABS, fiberglass, black polypropylene, and Kynar.
 
How Does Red Epoxy Work?
Initially, the red part (epoxy resin) is mixed with an equal part of the yellow part (hardener) forming a homogeneous mass. At this point, the reactants are brought together and allowed to develop sufficient compatibility before being used. In epoxy chemistry, the time required for the parts to become compatible is referred to as the induction time. Typically, an induction time of about 10 minutes is sufficient for Red Epoxy. Once the parts (or reactants) are brought together the reaction will slowly begin even without heat being applied. Eventually the reaction will result in a fully cured epoxy. Red Epoxy will fully cure without heat in 24 to 72 hours depending on temperature and humidity. NOTE: when Red Epoxy is allowed to cure without heat it retains its deep red color. The period of time required for an epoxy mixture to become unworkable is referred to as the pot life. Red Epoxy has a pot life of about 4 hours. This means that Red Epoxy can be used for repairs up to 4 hours after mixing. Finally, the Red Epoxy mixture is heated and the reaction rate is accelerated. When the color changes from red to gold the product is completely cured.
 
Applications
Anywhere a small hole or crack exist Red Epoxy makes the best repair material. Red Epoxy does not run and it works on vertical surfaces. Red Epoxy makes an excellent threaded joint sealant, particularly for hard to seal chemicals and dissimilar materials. Red Epoxy has a very broad application range and is used in HVAC, refrigeration, plumbing, automotive, marine, process piping, petrochemical and manufacturing applications in industrial, commercial and institutional sectors.
Red Epoxy has successfully repaired aluminum evaporators, heating coils, hot water heater tanks, pipes, valves, fittings, metal components, automotive engines, radiators (both plastic and metal), condensate drip pans, exhaust systems, metal cooling towers, tanks and boiler tubes.
