Prysmian BICON Bicaseal Putty Solid Setting – General Information
Bicaseal becomes a hard mass after approximately 4 hours. Ideally leave, without any movement, over night to cure fully. At reduced ambient temperatures, the setting time will increase and the mixing of the two components will become more difficult. Before application of the putty mix, ensure that the surfaces are clean and free from oil or lubricants, and where possible roughen the surfaces to aid adhesion. Water immersion, or the presence of water, will not prevent setting.
However, for good seals the surface should be dry. The maximum continuous operating temperature is 120°C, (with a maximum temperature of 450°C for short periods of time). Bicaseal putty is not affected by oils (e.g. transformer oil) and the surfaces may be painted after curing.
Cut equal lengths of resin and hardener from the sticks and work together by hand until achieving a uniform colour. It is important that you mix together an equal amounts of resin and putty, as incorrect quantities will adversely affect the compound. The putty is easy to mix and starts to set as soon as mixed.
As the compound is an epoxy putty, a small proportion of users could be sensitive to it. Set normal hygiene standards, i.e. wash hands immediately after use.
Wear disposable plastic gloves during both mixing and application.
During cold weather, it is advantageous for the compound to be warmed to aid mixing and thus avoid damage to the
Each 0.5kg pack of Prysmian BICON Bicaseal Putty Solid Setting F7061252 contains two sticks each of resin and hardener, individually wrapped.
