MM1018 The liquid shim  is a highly filled metal polymer for full-surface and force-filling of inaccuracies and unevenness between metal elements such as head plates, bridge bearings, crane and rail guides as well as steel components. Due to its high dimensional stability, MM1018 is also suitable for use in prestressed joints. The DIAMANT MM1018 liquid feed sheet has already been used by more than 1,000 buildings worldwide.

Liquid variant for casting or injecting. Product hardens under room conditions. Pressure resistance of up to 160 N/mm2.

MM1018 liquid is a product with general approval by building authorities (abZ). Registration number: Z-3. 82-2042

Custody / Durability

Store dry and frost-free in the unopened container. Durability 24 months. Avoid direct sunlight. Higher temperatures reduce the durability.

Processing parameters

The processing time (potting time) of the material begins as soon as the two components A and B are added together. Pot and curing time depend on the amount of material and the temperature. For larger containers, the potting time may be reduced due to a higher reaction heat. The following table gives practical pot life values for a 1kg package:

Material curing can be accelerated by heating. The maximum permissible temperature for accelerated curing is 65°C. The required minimum curing temperature is +5°C. At lower temperatures, it is recommended to preheat the components.

Work preparation

Contact surfaces wetted with MM1018 must be cleaned of dirt and loose particles using deoiled compressed air if possible. The Diamant-Reininger #1417 is recommended. The cleaner must be placed on a lint-free cloth, with which the contact surface is then cleaned. Screws must be protected if necessary (e. g. DIAMANT Screw Protector #8880) to prevent future adhesion of the threads with MM1018. If the contact surfaces have to be separated again at a later time, it is necessary to apply a release agent (e. g. DIAMANT release agent #1354) in advance.

Mixing process

For mixing of MM1018, component B is placed completely in the container with component A. Mix intensively with a hand drill and the DIAMANT mixing propeller (Art. -No. #0789) (max. 250 rpm for approx. 2 minutes). Wipe off material adhering to the wall of the container with a spatula and add to the mixture. Mix again thoroughly.

Application description

MM1018 liquid may be administered by watering or injecting. In both cases, it is necessary that the slit to be poured is sealed to prevent MM1018 from leaking out of the slit. For gap sealing, the use of MM1018 SEAL #2108 is recommended. Information on material and workmanship can be found in the technical data sheet MM1018 SEAL #2108.


The mixed MM1018 can be used to seal the gap by pouring it into a cavity. Transfer the mixed MM1018 into a clean container before pouring. From this vessel, the material can be poured directly into the cavity. Care must be taken to ensure adequate ventilation and air bubble-free pouring.


MM1018 may be injected into a sealed cavity. Prerequisite for the injection are appropriate injection and ventilation openings, which have to be planned depending on the available gap size or cavity. The injection is carried out via flexible plastic hoses (prod. –No. #1579) using shut-off valves (prod. –No. #1577) which are attached via R1/4” screw connections (prod. –No. #1578) at the inlet and outlet points. A 150mm long plastic hose, a shut-off valve and a further piece of hose designed according to the working conditions are to be attached via suitable hose points (prod. –No. # 1576).

MM1018 is blended according to the processing instructions. The finished mixed product is then transferred in a stream as thin as possible to avoid air bubbles forming into an empty catelet (Prod. –No. #1573 320ml). After filling, the cartridge is closed with a cartridge plunger and slowly rotated to allow the liquid MM1018 to flow from the tip to the plunger causing the trapped air in the cartridge to rise to the tip of the cartridge. This procedure is especially necessary for a bladder-free injection! The cartridge can now be opened at the top with a knife and the tip screwed on. It is recommended to shorten the cartridge tip a bit so that it has a one diameter of approx. 8 mm. This reduces injection resistance and facilitates press-in. The cartridge tip is now placed by hand on the free end of the hose.

After opening the stop valve, the injection can be started. Pressing should be done with a constant pressure. It is essential to ensure that no air bubbles are pressed through the hose into the cavity! To change the cartridge or refill, the shut-off valve is closed to prevent backflow of the already injected material. The free hose end is fixed for the cartridge change so that no material can leak. The injection is stopped as soon as the material leaves the upper vent. The stop valve must be closed before removing the cartridge. Material flowing back from the injection hose, for example, should be collected with a cloth and properly disposed of in the household waste.

After 24 hours of curing, the injection and ventilation connections can be cut off and disposed of in the household waste.
