Description: A quick-setting putty for plugging holes, cracks and apertures in furnaces.
Installation: mix a very small quantity of the powder and liquid in the ratio 100 weight parts powder to 46 weight parts liquid. Decide if you want it stiffer or softer and add powder or liquid accordingly. In most applications less than 1kg is mixed at a time. If you need more than 2kg at a time, use Versimould Panel.

Versimould Plug expands on setting, making a very tight seal. In general, it should not be used to plug cracks on the hot face of furnace brickwork. It is excellent for patching, as it sticks well, even to hot dry surfaces.
A peculiarity of this material is that it will last in a furnace for many years, but will disintegrate if the furnace is cooled to ambient temperature for a few weeks.
