How To Use

  1. Clean surface free of grease, dirt and dust. For best results roughen bond area prior to cleaning.
  2. Cut off required amount. Replace disc on remaining portion. Use gloves to avoid messing hands. To mix, knead with fingers to uniform colour. If mixing is difficult, warm to room temperature. Apply with pressure to surface to be repaired (within 2 minutes of mixing) and mould to shape if required. If material sticks to fingers, use the plastic wrapper to press the material in place.
  3. For a smooth appearance, remove excess and hand rub with water or a damp cloth before hardening begins.
  4. Trim away any excess before initial hardening. Remove any residues with acetone prior to initial hardening. Hardened excess may be sanded or trimmed away once fully cured.
  5. After 5-10 minutes, Knead It Steel will harden and begin to form a strong bond. After 60 minutes, Knead It Steel may be drilled, sanded, machined, filed, sawed or painted.
  6. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after use.

  • Not recommended for plastic fuel tanks.
  • *Does not adhere to polyethylene, polypropylene or Polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon) or silicone rubber.
  • Not tested for drinking water contact to AS/NZ 4020:2005.

Handy Tips

  • Ensure the putty and hardener are mixed properly. Knead It will become warm as it is mixed. A good indication that it is mixed properly is when you have a uniform colour, and feel a mild heat radiating from the Knead It.
  • To help determine when your Knead It has set, keep a small piece off to check – when it is hard, it indicates your job is done.
  • Store in a cool place for maximum shelf life.
  • Set time increases at temperatures below 20°C.

Clean Up

  • Remove excess and hand rub with water or a damp cloth before hardening begins.
