Microset 121 Forming Putty is a two-part synthetic rubber compound designed for macroscopic moulding of surface shape and form. The product is supplied in two versions, fast curing 121F and slow curing 121S, to facilitate ease of use over a wide range of temperatures.


Part A (yellow) and Part B (blue) are mixed in equal amounts by hand, until the compound is of a uniform colour. The mixed compound is then pressed firmly onto the area of interest and left to cure. Additional amounts of putty can be applied to build up thickness or increase the area of coverage. The mixed compound cures to form a hard but flexible rubber.


One important use of Microset 121 putty is for producing a rigid backing for the more flexible Microset 101 replicating compounds. In order to use this putty in this way, first produce a Microset 101 replica of the area of interest. Allow the replica to cure but do not remove it from the surface. Apply mixed 121 putty to the back of the Microset 101 replica to the required thickness and allow to cure. The putty will bond to the Microset 101 replica and act as a dimensional support.

Amazing fast curing flexible replicating fluid ideal for component and surface feature duplication down to sub-micron level

  • High resolution replication materials for engineering inspection
  • Use when conventional NDT methods are impractical

 

Surface replication has been employed in engineering for many years, particularly for in-situ high resolution metallography.

Microset replicating compounds have a resolution better than 0.1 microns (4 x 10–6 inches) and can be used not only for metallography but also for a multitude of other purposes including 3-D applications.

These specially formulated two-part polymers are supplied in cartridges and dispensed as fully mixed semi-viscous liquids, using simple dispensing guns and mixing nozzles.

They cure quickly to produce flexible high resolution replicas which can be peeled from the surface.

When viewed microscopically under coaxial illumination, they have a bright metallic appearance, allowing detail such as microstructure, micro-cracking and pitting to be observed at high magnifications.

These characteristics make the technique very suitable for the assessment of defects on critical engineering surfaces.

 

  • 50ml system with dispensing gun, Microset cartridge and nozzles
  • 265ml system with manual or pneumatic reusable dispensing gun
  • 495ml system with manual or pneumatic reusable dispensing gun
  • compounds available in either fluid or thixotropic versions with a range of curing times to suit different environments.
  • Microset 121 Forming Putty is a two-part synthetic rubber compound designed for macroscopic moulding of surface shape and form. The product is supplied in two versions, fast curing 121F and slow curing 121S, to facilitate ease of use over a wide range of temperatures.

Replicas can be made in any shape or size and, with suitable application methods, the high resolution can be achieved over the whole of the replica surface. Replicas may be removed from surfaces with significant re-entrant detail, without damage, allowing the replication of fracture surfaces, threaded holes, corrosion-pitting, internal geometry, surface mechanical damage, etc. The technique facilitates the detailed inspection of surface features at remote locations inside equipment, where access is difficult. Despite their flexibility when stretched, Microset replicas retain their initial overall geometry and dimensions and are successfully employed both for high accuracy metrology applications, including surface finish and surface damage assessment, and for macroscopic measurements.

Microset replicas pick up loose debris from surfaces and the micro-analysis of such debris can sometimes provide invaluable information, for instance in corrosion related investigations. The benefits of being able to view remote defects microscopically and, where necessary, generate accurate dimensional and analytical information, makes Microset replication a unique, versatile and powerful inspection tool.

 Replica Inspection Techniques

A number of different inspection methods may be used to examine and assess Microset replicas depending on the application. Microset replication in combination with these inspection methods allows the qualitative and quantitative three-dimensional characterisation of surface features and defects, in situ.
