Superfast Plastic Epoxy Putty Stick

Superfast Plastic is an epoxy putty in a 114g stick format specifically formulated for the repair of leaking plastic pipes, including PVC.

It is used to seal holes, cracks and leaking joints in bathroom, kitchen and industrial pipes made from PVC, ABS and many other types of plastic. The only plastics which Superfast Plastic is not compatible with are polyolefins (polyethylene/polypropylene).

Superfast Plastic is resistant to water, chemicals and temperature extremes. It contains no solvents or VOC’s, is non-flammable and releases no noxious fumes. It will not shrink or pull away and the unused portion of Plastic Stick stays fresh for future use when saved in its original package.

To reinforce repairs made with Superfast Plastic, Sylmasta recommend overwrapping the Epoxy Putty with a SylWrap Pipe Repair Bandage. The Bandage offers a rock hard, impact resistant layer of protection.

SylWrap can be purchased along with Superfast Steel Epoxy Putty as part of the SylWrap Standard Pipe Repair Kit or the Pipe Repair Contractor Case, containing enough products to make up to six pipe repairs. Superfast Steel is effective on pipes of all materials, including plastic.

For larger leak sealing applications requiring a slower curing putty for more careful application, please see Sylmasta AB Original Epoxy Putty. AB Original is available in bulk quantities and has a two-hour work time for more complicated repairs.

About

How to fix a leaking pipe using Superfast Plastic Epoxy Putty Stick

Superfast Plastic Stick contains pre-measured portions of activator and base, meaning that no measuring or mixing is required.

To use Superfast Plastic, simply cut off the required amount of Epoxy Putty and knead it by hand. As it is kneaded, the blue putty will turn white to indicate successful mixing.

Whilst soft, Superfast Plastic Epoxy Putty is pushed into cracks in domestic and industrial plastic pipework where it will cure, filling holes and sealing leaks.

Superfast Plastic has a work life of approximately 20 minutes. Within 35-40 minutes, the Epoxy Putty will begin to harden and form a cohesive bond. After two to three hours, the pipe in question can be put back into service.

Once cured, Superfast Plastic can be tapped, drilled, screwed, sawed, machined, ground, filed, or painted to create a smooth and seamless finish uniform with the pipe undergoing repair.

Applications

  • Domestic repairs to kitchen pipes, bathroom pipes, and soil pipes
  • Industrial PVC, ABS, and other plastic pipe repairs

Benefits

  • Easy to use – cut off amount of putty required, knead by hand, apply
  • Sets white to appear uniform with most plastic pipework
  • Repairs can be made in under 45 minutes
