SOLL LIGHT BLUE extremely light filler suitable for moving parts, ideal for bonnet. Suitable for medium to small repairs, can be used as finishing putty. Has excellent adhesion to aluminium and zinc. Because of the very low density it is easy to sand even after 20 minutes from application with temperature fo 25C. The SOLL LIGHT BLUE filler has very high resistance to stress that replicate property of the car body. There is a minimal increase of weight of construction, so it is suitable for aircrafts and ship-building sector.
Body Filler 1L and hardener
Bonded surface must be without rust and old coatings. It is necessary to degrease the surface carefully, eventually to roughen with sanding paper:
glass fibre – sanding paper P40
steel, wood, cast-iron – sanding paper P60
existing coatings – sanding to bare metal with sanding paper P60
Hardening: The putty comes with hardener (DBPO – initiator, red paste in tube) the weight ratio:
For 100 parts of putty : 3 parts of hardener – recommended ratio for temperature 23C
Pot life: The putty is necessary to be used within 5 minutes after mixing with hardener at temperature 23C and hardening ratio 100:3. Pot life can be extended at temperatures lower than 23C (minimum 17C) and shortened at higher temperatures. Modification of hardening ratio can partly eliminate temperature influence on pot life.
minimum 100 : 1 to extend pot life
maximum 100 : 4 to shorten pot life
Sanding: The putty is can be sanded after 20 – 30 minutes at temperature 23C and hardening ratio 100:3. Dry sanding starts with sanding paper P80 and finishes with sanding paper P120 – P180. Wet sanding starts with sanding paper P120 and finishes with sanding paper P180 – P240.
Top coats: can be used all common paint systems. The putty withstand baking temperature of 80C – 110C. If it is necessary to use the putty on anticorrosive primer and bake the enamel after that, then we recommend to use the baking primer, or more precisely two-compound epoxy primer. We do not recommend using of air- drying synthetic coatings and baking after that.
