Prevent rock-slides in your reef aquarium - this construction epoxy is designed specifically for bonding rocks and corals in a reef aquarium and cures underwater too.
Milliput is a two-part epoxy putty that has been specially developed for use in salt water and freshwater aquariums and other underwater applications. In the marine aquarium it is ideal for bonding together live rock to form complicated structures and avoiding rock falls caused by turbo snails, sea urchins and strong current flow, for preparing coral frags and for creating clam bases to prevent them being attacked and ultimately killed by bristle worms. In addition it can be used to repair leaky pipe work, broken equipment or for bonding items to the aquarium glass.
Milliput has been developed to be stickier than most epoxies so that it bonds easier to wet substrates. This makes it initially more natural within a marine aquarium during the period before being encrusted with true coralline algae.
Can be used for:
Bonding rock during aquascaping.
Positioning corals within the aquarium.
Making clam bases.
Repairing pipework and equipment.
Plus 1001 other general uses in the aquarium and about the home.
The two sticks have a long shelf life but once mixed the resultant putty is at first soft and highly adhesive and then gradually hardens. Speed of hardening is dependant on temperature and at normal temperatures (20-25ºC) Milliput becomes rock hard in three to four hours. By the application of heat the setting time can be reduced to a few minutes.
After setting hard Milliput continues to cure and is fully cured after an elapse of time equal to the setting time at the same temperature. Once fully cured Milliput can be machined, drilled, tapped, turned, filed, sawn, sandpapered and painted. Milliput can be sandpapered and painted immediately it has set. (it is advisable to wear eye protection during this process).
Milliput is an excellent adhesive and will bond any of the following to itself or to any of the others - wood, brick, cement, metals, concrete, plastics, glass etc, but note that Milliput is not intended as a thin layer adhesive and should not be used where a paste, mucilage or thin glue is indicated. Milliput will set under water and is heat resistant up to 130°C.
We recommend Milliput is stored in cool, dry conditions. Please reseal bags after use. Stored correctly this product should remain workable for about 2 years.
