From ITW Devcon comes DFense Blok, an alumina ceramic bead-filled epoxy wearing compound for use in severe impact and sliding abrasion conditions. DFense Blok, when used with DFense Blok Surface Wetting Agent, drastically increases drop impact strength and abrasion resistance better than traditional epoxy products, the Danvers, Massachusetts-based company reports.

According to the company, DFense Blok Surface Wetting Agent is a 2-part thixotropic epoxy gel system that improves the ease of application and cured adhesion properties of DFense Blok wearing compound. Once the wetting agent has been applied, there is no wait time before applying DFense Blok wearing compound.

DFense Blok is ideal for use in repairing, rebuilding and protecting typical wear and abrasion applications and also in areas that cannot be welded or where sufficient surface preparation cannot be performed. The product also can be used in place of abrasion-resistant metal and ceramic tile, ITW says.

Available in 30-lb. pails, DFense Blok is mixed at a 2:1 ratio and has a working time of 25 minutes at room temperature. The non-sagging compound can be trowel-applied on vertical and overhead surfaces. It achieves functional cure in 4½ hours, and it withstands service temperatures up to 300° F.
