fingers and thumb and knead putty between
fingers using both hands for ± 1 minute

hands, applying lots of pressure onto putty

Unlike other Pratley Putty, Pratley Steel Putty goes through 3 distinct stages whilst mixing. Stage 1: It starts off malleable and slightly sticky up to about 1 minute of mixing.

Stage 2: It warms up and becomes somewhat crumbly at about 3 minutes.

Stage 3: It then slowly becomes more and more malleable with further mixing. It needs to be mixed for about 6 to 8 minutes. Thorough mixing is essential. It is important not to stop mixing at stage 2. Apply by dabbing and wiping with pressure onto the application surfaces. This ensures a good bond. Build up the shape as necessary.

Pratley Steel Putty should be applied in thick section (not less than 3 mm (1/8") for maximum strength). - Should the sticks be hard due to prolonged storage in a cold place, gentle warming should restore them to their original consistency.
