Free Form® Habitat® Black Epoxy Putty is a mix-by-hand putty that is used to create textured or highly detailed display pieces. Habitat® Black is solvent-free and contains no VOC’s. Working time is 60 minutes and cure time is 16 hours at room temperature (73°F/23°C). Epoxy cures to a very hard, heat resistant material that is easily painted.
Use with Habitat® Black Folding Powder – fold powder into epoxy putty to thicken and reduce sag when applied to a vertical surface. Folding Powder also reduces stickiness and makes the epoxy more handle-able.
Habitat® Black is suitable for interior and exterior use. It is certified ‘aquarium safe’ and used by aquariums to create hyper-realistic coral and other aquarium displays. Habitat® Black is also used for general sculpting and theming applications.
Once putty is applied, it can be stamped with a silicone rubber stamp to create repeating patterns with intricate detail over a large surface area. Surface can be smoothed with alcohol or water. New Habitat® Black will bond to cured Habitat® Black without delamination. Habitat® Black will not melt foam, and can be used as an EPS foam coating.
Free Form® Habitat® Black is also an excellent repair cement and bonds permanently to itself, PVC, Plexiglas® (acrylic), wood, many metals, plastics and foams.
