Lab-metal repair compound solves cosmetic patching problems for chrome platers and metal finishers.
Lab-metal, a ready-to-use metal repair and patching compound, provides fast, platable repairs
to metal. The dent filler requires no two-part mixing and hardens simply by exposure to air. Labmetal
fills dents, seals seams, patches cracks and smooths imperfections. Lab-metal
withstands temperatures to 350oF (or one-time exposures to 425oF). Hi-Temp Lab-metal
withstands temperatures to 1000oF.
The single-component metal putties from Alvin Products are spread with a putty knife or similar
tool. Thinned with Lab-solvent, Lab-metal may be brushed or sprayed onto the surface for a
rustproof, metallic coating. Lab-solvent enhances the workability of Lab-metal and Hi-Temp
Lab-metal – the applicator is simply immersed into Lab-solvent during smoothing.
Alvin Lab-metal products are essential repair products for platers and metal finishers, welders,
fabricators, powder coaters, metal furniture manufacturers, and dozens of metalworking
industries. Lab-metal is packaged in seven sizes and is sold through stocking distributors.
