Question: Beware of Negative Reviews
Answer: Alvin Products/Lab metal stands behind Lab metal and Hi Temp Lab metal since 1950. Beware of negative reviews from users who simply did not follow instructions. Solvent evaporation is how Lab metal dries. Heat curing needs to be done with Hi Temp Lab metal. If surface preparation, dry time, re-coat windows, heat curing instructions are not followed, negative results/failures could occur. Please contact Alvin direct prior to each application.
Question: Technical Questions before I start?
Answer: If this is the first time you are using Lab metal or Hi Temp Lab metal please call 800-358-8724 for technical questions.
Each application is different and requires multiple methods of surface preparation, application procedures, dry time, heat curing, sanding/grinding/smoothing.
Question: Should I solvent clean the Lab metal or Hi Temp after curing?
Answer: No, this will attack and soften the dried/cured material and will likely outgas when heated.
