MM1018 P is a metal polymer for the 100% form-and force locking gap compensation for tolerance inaccuracies and unevenness between metal elements, head plates, bridge bearings, crane and rail guides as well as steel components.
For gaps of >10 mm, it is recommended to insert steel shim plates in order to reduce the gap width to less than 10mm.
Pasty variant for application and insertion. Product hardens u nder room conditions. Pressure resistance up to 133 N/ mm2.
MM1018 paste is a product with general bu ilding inspectorate approval ( abZ). Registration number: Z-3. 82-2042 Characteristics

custody / durability
Store dry and frost-free in the unopened container. Durability 24 months. Avoid direct sunlight. Higher temperatures reduce the durability.
The processing time ( potting time) of the material b egins 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:
The material hardening can be accelerated by heating. The maximum permissible temperature for accelerated curing is 65°C. The minimum curing temperature required is +5°C. At lower temperatures it is recommended to preheat the components.
Contact surfaces wetted with MM1018 must be cleaned of dirt and loose particles u sing 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. #0 789) ( 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 paste is applied x-shaped to the contact surface. The following illustrations show an example of a square and a rectangular contact surface. It is important to note that the highest material elevation is applied in the center of the contact surface ( see red line in the picture) so that MM1018 is dispersed in paste when the contact surfaces are joined together. After joining the contact surfaces, MM1018 is pasty free of air bubb les and distributed over the entire surface. Excess material that has b een pressed out at the sides of the contact surfaces should, if possible, be removed b efore curing.
