Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] what's the difference???


Here's what I have noted in working with it..................

In the first 30 minutes or so of working with it, it is tackier than MS.
I find a get a better bond with Apoxie Sculpt when bonding mechanics and
such inside a head, etc.  I still do some good prep work to the area to
be bonded (rough sanding, drill small holes to help it mechanically key
in, etc.) as I used to do with the MS.

I find it smooths a little easier (with water) which is great when
modifying a casting, or patching. It feathers in a little better from
what I've noticed.

It also appears to be less brittle. It's some pretty tough stuff.  I had
a little left over on a project, and I formed it into a pancake about the
size of a half dollar and 1/8" thick or less, just to test it out a
little. I've tried to break it with my hands, and can not. IIRC, I could
break the MS in a similar size and shape.

Cheers,
