Rated 5 out of 5 by from great I used on cast iron stove were a crack was then powder coated cant see the crack any more

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well if you're patient and precise You need to stir the product thoroughly, then put it onto your applicator and apply it sparingly, evenly, and in one stroke. Don't work it. Just lay it on. After it dries for a day, sand it gently with a power sander and gently feather the edges with precision. It's turns really HARD, so be patient! Works awesome with practice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall It's a Great Filler Prior to Powder-Coating I used this now twice to fill imperfections in several different valve covers I've powder-coated or am in the process of powdering. This stuff thinned out a little bit with the thinner made it very easy to dribble/run into the defect & worked great! I was able to lightly sand it down some then let it sit for the full 24 hours prior to curing the repair in an oven. It hasn't shown any signs of shrinkage & accepts the charged powder as if it was the original metal. Overall, it's a great product if you use it for what it's intended to do; fill/patch damaged metal that has enough material there to allow it to bite into it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good filler, difficult to work with Edges are a difficult to feather in on bare material prior to powder coating. Found it best to prime part first and sand/smooth edge prior to finish base coat. It's not as workable as a plastic filler for traditional painted finishes. Overall it works, but takes some practice and patience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work well I used this product to repair 2 dents in a motorcycle fuel tank. the dents were 2.5" in dia. and about .5" deep. This product is extremely difficult to use. It took me 3 weeks of work and rework and even after that the result was terrible. You must apply in thin layers and wait for the solvent to dry before you can due any sanding or it just crumbles. Getting it ti feather out to a smooth edge I found impossible. I had to remove and start over several times and even after I thought I had it as good as I could it cracked in the oven and the outline of the patch was very visible. I have given up on this and will cover the areas with some type of decal. I not a happy camper!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from lab metal, not useable! The product drys so fast, it starts to cake before you can apply it. Then it won"t stick to the steel. I tryed several different techniques with no success. Even when you prep the surface and add solvent to the filler as recommended. Sorry guys, It was a big waist of money and time.

Questions & Answers

If I am going to use the Hi Temp lab metal on a car engine oil pan leak do I have to thin it out with the sovent or just use it straight?

Asked by: Coco
That's completely up to you. The product can be used straight from the can or thinned to smooth the surface to reduce sanding and shaping.

Can this product be cut to a liquid state so that it can be poured to make a mold for pouring lead? Is there a shelf life after the can is opened?

Asked by: Kubby
Unfortunately, this is more of a putty based consistency and should not be thinned down enough to be poured or it could negatively affect the integrity of this product. The High Temp. Lab Metal will come with a one-year shelf life as long as it is sealed and stored in a temperature-controlled environment.

If it cures for over 24hrs does it still need an hour at 425° before powder coating?

Can this e applied on top of cured powder coat, I see areas that still have pitting and I don't want to remove it all back down to bare metal

Asked by: Dave H
It would be best to remove the powder in the pitted areas, so the Lab Metal can adhere to the metal. You could use a small hand drill to remove the powder in the areas that need to be filled. Then powder over that area, using the hot flock method.

How would this work for molding a neck on a motorcycle? Basically like bondo was used in the 60's, 70's.& 80's. If I applied layers 3/8' thick, air dry for 24 hours &/or heating them for an hour would it hold up to high vibration harley? Rigid frame.

Asked by: captzap
Unfortunately we have never tested this product being built up so thick to see if it would last. We have only tested in filling pitting and gouges on items such as wheels and frames.

I want to fill in pit marks/holes in in exhaust pipe. Will this work? Also, whats the best way to get it to 425 degrees?

Asked by: Skip
As long as the exhaust will stay below 1000F this product will be perfect. The best way to heat up to 425 to cure the product varies on what you have. An oven would be a very simple method while an Infrared lamp would be another great option if you monitor the temp with an IR Thermometer.

How thick can this be applied? Presuming one can apply multiple layers to get say 1/2” thickness, how would that process go?

Asked by: Robes
When filling deep holes or cavities, apply Lab-metal in layers no thicker than 3/8", allowing each to dry before applying the next.

This product is not designed to fill voids between sections as there is no strength this way. It is designed to fill small recesses. If you have a void it would be best to weld this area shut prior to this filler.
