Flexane® 80 Liquid
This 200 ton stamping press would misalign after only weeks of operation. Metal shims were used to
Complete repair surfaces were roughened to a SSPC- SP5 white metal finish using a grinding machine. All surface areas were then chemically cleaned using Cleaner Blend 300. FL10 Primer was applied and allowed to cure or dry for 15 minutes. Automotive weather stripping was used to dam and hold the Flexane material in position while curing. Flexane 80 Liquid was poured into position to a thickness of 1/2". Using Flexane 80 Liquid established a tolerance of .0002" inch. This precision could not be achieved or maintained using shims. Flexane's extremely high compressive strength and flexibility (350% elongation) provided a long lasting solution to this alignment problem.
