Milliput Terracotta is a hard wearing epoxy putty used to repair garden urns, pots, statuettes, damaged brickwork and other ornaments found in garden and exterior settings.
It has been designed to restore terracotta and other ceramics which may have been damaged and it has been featured in leading garden magazines.
Milliput comes as a two-part, cold setting, non shrinking epoxy putty in cartons containing one 56.7gm stick of resin and one 56.7gm of hardener.
The two parts are mixed together in equal quantities. At first, Milliput Terracotta is pliable and easily shaped. A very smooth finish can be easily obtained by wetting the Milliput with a fine woven, moist cloth. The putty can also be used for sculpting and model making.
Milliput hardens in three to four hours depending on room temperature, offering plenty of time to work with the putty. The cure speed can be accelerated with the use of heat.
It cures underwater and is heat-resistant to 130°C. Once fully cured Milliput can be machined, drilled, tapped, turned, filed, sawn, sandpapered and painted.
As well as Milliput Terracotta, there are five other grades available: Standard (cures to a dark yellow), Silver Grey, Black, Superfine White and Turquoise Blue. These other grades can be viewed on the Milliput section of our website.
For a harder wearing but equally easy-to-use alternative to Milliput, please see Geomfix Original A+B Modelling Putty. Geomfix Original can be used effectively on fine, delicate work as well as the largest of models or repairs.
There is also the Geomfix Coloured range of modelling epoxy putty available in 22 different colours, matching Swarovski crystals.
Geomfix Coloured is highly customisable. If the colour you require is not listed as one of the 22, then SylCreate have the ability to custom produce a coloured modelling putty to match your requirements. For more information on this service, please contact SylCreate.
