Fill Bond® Aerospace Putty from Sherwin-Williams


The stresses aircraft face have always been
hard on filler putties. Not one had what it takes to stand up to the
stress. Until now: Until Sherwin-Williams pulled out
the big guns with Fill Bond. Fill Bond: an advanced formula is the very
first Sherwin-Williams putty designed specifically for aerospace use. What makes it better? It all starts with its no mess, no waste dispensing
guns. All you have to do is shake one of these double
barrel cartridges and pop it onto the gun. Then just squeeze the trigger. The two materials are mixed automatically
at the exact ratio needed. The Fill Bond dispensing gun also enables
you to apply the putty exactly where you want it. No other tools necessary. And when you’re finished, there’s zero waste. Just put the cap back on the cartridge and
use it on the next job to save on material and disposal costs. There’s no question that dispensing gun takes
a lot of hassles out of the mixing, application, and storage processes, but paint crews also
really like how easy to Fill Bond material is to work with. The Fill Bond works great. I like the consistency of it. Spreads good. Fill Bond is a lot smoother. When you lay it on you don’t have to worry
about going over it again. I mean, you can go over it multiple times
without it clumping up and flaking off. Fill Bond is an epoxy material with great
spread-ability, and a long working time. So it’s easy to work Fill Bond into scenes
and rivets before it hardens. While other putties tend to run when applied
thickly to vertical surfaces, Fill Bond has a high degree of anti-slump. You can apply it to several areas at one time
without it running before you come back to work and smooth it. You also shorten the downtime between an application
and sanding with Fill Bond. It Only need around two to six hours of dry
time before sanding. The old product we used to use it was inconsistent. One time be too thick, one time it would be
too thin and we’d mix it the same way every time and it would roll up on the applicator
and in it would be inconsistent throughout the airplane. Be thick and thin thick and thin the consistency
was smoother. It filled better. It filled the rivets better. very Easy to spread. With this it comes out of the tube consistently
every time. Simply put, Fill Bond performs. It isn’t just an automotive body putty. Fill Bond’s formula was developed specifically
for the rigors that an airplane surface must endure. Flexibility is a major component we need on
the airplane. We have a tube that’s constantly pressurized
and depressurizing and you don’t have the material to be able to do the same thing. It’s pointless putting it in there, a lot
of time effort and costs to do this, and at the end result is you’re going to be back
to square one after six months. Why? While other putties are extremely rigid, Fill
Bond was engineered to retain a degree of flexibility, making it ideal for aircraft
seams that are under constant stresses. Fill Bond was also formulated to have adherence
to all types of surfaces including aluminum and composites. You don’t have to worry about high film build
up problems either. You can apply a thick layer of Fill Bond and
it still resists chipping splintering and cracking. Add as an epoxy Fill Bond will not pinhole
when it tries. To give your operation a perfect fit. Sherwin-Williams has developed a choice of
Fill Bond dispensing guns. Two sizes of manual twin-tube guns. And an air-powered twin-tube gun. It’s not as messy. Usually with other products, you end up with
most of it all over you. All over the floor, all of your hands. This stuff I’ve found hardly any. You’re not wasting a lot of product. I’ll tell you right now we zip through this
airplane…and, what? We’ve been out here for four hours? Maybe? Tops. We’re practically done with the aircraft. The consistency is good and it cures a lot
quicker. We’ve cut our time and have clean up time
on top of that by you know. An hour after lunch, we’re going to be standing
on this aircraft. The Other product, we need the next day. That’s a positive thing for me because it
cuts my schedule down. So, The less we’re on the airplane the smaller
and smaller the schedule means at the end of the year when you add it all up we can
bring in an airplane. This is one of the most technically advanced
putties available to the aerospace market. And Sherwin-Williams has created the delivery
systems that make it easier to apply than any other putty. It’s time for you to bring in the big guns. Ask your Sherwin-Williams representative to
deliver your Fill Bond.
