Metolux Filler

Post by revrnd » Mon Nov 28, 2016 7:51 pm

Does anyone know of a source or if it's still available? For those that don't know about it, it is a 2 part filler mat'l using aluminum powder & a liquid. I remember my father using it in the late 60s/early 70s. More recently I used it @ my workplace about 15 years ago. I was using it to fill a low spot on an alum' rail where drive wheels were wearing the alum' upon acceleration.

Checking online the only results I get for Metolux is for wood fillers.

I thought of this last night when using Por15's Motorcycle Repair Kit. The sealer (before mixing) used in the kit reminded me of the Metolux product.

TIA

I've not heard of it, but Epicast is a metallic/epoxy based structural adhesive/filler, and Hysol has one as well. Both have MIL Spec numbers and a tensile strength rating.

Not inexpensive though...

Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!
