Wencon Rapid is a fast curing two-component, epoxy compound with a wide range of applications for emergency repairs and maintenance.
Typical applications are emergency repairs, where a short curing time is required to reduce down time. Wencon Rapid is very suitable for applications where thicker layers of material are required, as the compound quickly sets and becomes solid. The compound can also be used for regular maintenance jobs and as a filling compound.
- Fast curing – reduced down time
- Wide range of applications
- Strong adhesion to all metal surfaces
- Simple mixing and application
- Convenient unit sizes

Wencon Rapid shows many of the characteristics of metals, which together with outstanding adhesion to all metallic surfaces makes the repair compound highly suitable for repair of corroded and worn metals.
Wencon Rapid is non conducting and will therefore not cause bi-metallic corrosion. After curing the compound is resistant to oil, water, salt water and most diluted acids and a range of solvents. Heat resistance ranges from 60° C (140°F) in corrosive and heavy load environments and up to 250° C (482°F) when applied as a filling compound.
Wencon Rapid is very suitable for applications where thicker layers of material are required, as the compound quickly sets and becomes solid. Typical applications are corroded tanks, pump housings and impellers, valves, tubes, pipes, heat exchangers, flange faces, seats, worn shafts, hydraulic rams and all emergency repairs, where a short curing time is required. The compound can also be used as a filling compound.
Wencon products are designed to be simple to use and cost effective. Easy mixing ratio (1:1 by volume) reduces waste to a minimum and high specific volume gives high coverage rates.
Fast curing two-component solvent free paste consistency epoxy repair compound.
The surface must always be dry, clean and degreased
Applying to new steel surface:
- Grit blasting to SA 2,5
- if Grit blasting is not possible use grinding
- after grinding the surface must be degreased with Wencon Bio Cleaner
Repairing old steel surface:
- Grit blasting to SA 2,5
- Sweat out water and salts
- Grit blasting to SA 2,5 again
- Profile 75 microns
Mix by volume 1:1. Mix until an even color is obtained.
Depending on amount mixed and temperature. Mixed in small amounts, the pot life is approximately 10-20 minutes at 20°C (68°F)
Wencon Rapid has a paste consistency and is applied by spatula, also on vertical surfaces.
Curing will take place in 40-90 minutes at 20°C (68°F)
REDUCED CURING TIME WITH INFRARED
This product is tested with and suitable for infrared curing. Curing with infrared radiation can reduce curing time significantly. Result can vary, depending on circumstances and equipment used.
