Application Tips

Remove paint, rust, oil, dirt, moisture from application surface. Lab-Solvent is the recommended surface cleaner. Sitr Lab-metal well. Apply with putty knife squeegee, or similar tool. To fill holes, apply in thin layers (less than 3/8"). Let each layer dry before applying the next. Dry time: A 1/16" layer hardens in 1-2 hours; 1/8" hardens in 3-4 hrs. Infra-red lamp use will speed drying time. For vertical or overhead applications, pour Lab-metal into open container and allow to stand 5-10 minutes to render it less fluid. Shelf life 2 years in unopened can. Not intended for use as an adhesive.

Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product on the market I use Lab Metal exclusively in my restorations. Works better than any other product on the market and I have tried most. My only caution is to use Lab Solvent only with this product. Use the Lab Solvent to smooth out your work to minimize the amount of sanding. Lab Metal dries so hard it is a bear to sand if you apply it in a sloppy manner. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves a TON of time! Lab Metal is the PERFECT choice for repairing, permanently, rust holes, accidental holes, covering welds and joints, and a lot of other things. It DOES work with powder coating. You can't over heat it though. Heating the oven higher than required to cure the paint will cause Lab Metal to bubble. Use the right temp and it's perfect. I use this to cover large weld joints that may not be perfect, and I don't want to drag out a welder to re-weld the joint. I cover it with Lab Metal and sand it smooth, and it looks perfect when finished and painted. I used it to fill in rust on a 45 year old Wheel Horse mower deck, and it saved me a dozen hours of welding the holes closed. Lab metal filled the holes and looks original when sanded and painted. A real time saver. It takes a little learning curve because it does dry very quickly, so one must continue to paint solvent on it while smoothing it. It's definately not a problem though. I wish it came in different colors that match items I am repairing.

Yes Lab metal will work in those applications. An alternative product would be USC All Metal(50751ZP) it would be easier to sand.

Can I use lab metal on a 1957 Chevy Belair quarter panel replacement in the seam areas where the factory used lead, can it be sanded smooth if not can regular body filler go over it to finish the seam, can K2 primer and paint be used over it. Thanks

Asked by: Handyguy
This question is one that gets a bit of debate (body filler vs lead). The product I have heard of people using with success is Metal to Metal filler - https://www.eastwood.com/metal-to-metal-filler-quart-with-hardner.html
