Hudco CMP Ceramic Rebuild

HUDCO CMP Ceramic Rebuild is a cost effective alternative to replacing expensive worn equipment. It is a "non-slumping "paste designed to rebuild equipment badly worn or damaged by exposure to abrasive solids moving at high velocities. Since the major component is "diamondhard" silicon carbide, Ceramic Rebuild is NOT machinable.

Although abrasion is blamed for most damaged to metals, other factors such as electrolysis, cavitation or chemical attack contribute significantly to their deterioration. Ceramic Rebuild's non-conductive, passivated surface offers an outstanding balance of protection against these additional factors. HUDCO'S Ceramic Rebuild costs only a fraction of other methods such as overlay welding, which often creates problems of warping, stress cracking and surface irregularities.

Application Instructions

Surface Preparation: 
(A) Surface of substrates must be clean and sound. Remove grease, oil, or other foreign material with acetone, wire brushing, or sandblasting. Acid etching the surface is acceptable if followed by thorough flushing with clean water.
(B) Roughen surface by grinding or sandblasting (3-5 mil surface profile) Surface must be completely dry with a minimum surface temperature of 75° F before applying.
Mixing: Mix 2 parts of CMP Ceramic Rebuild Resin to 1 part of CMP Ceramic Rebuild Hardener by weight. Kits are supplied in the correct ratio. Ensure that the sides of the mixing container are scraped into the mixture. Mix several minutes, until consistent color is achieved.
Application: Apply product to prepared surface and use supplied tools to achieve desired finish.
Curing: At 75° F, product will gel in 20 min. Initial cure will occur in 2-4 hours. Final cure occurs in 24 hours. Curing can be accelerated by heating the applied product to 140° F. Product properties will also be improved by curing at this elevated temperature.
Safety Precautions
CAUTION: For Industrial Use Only. Keep Away From Children.
HUDCO CMP Ceramic Rebuild Resin contains epoxy resin which is harmful if swallowed. After prolonged exposure it may irritate skin and cause sensitization and/or dermatitis.
HUDCO CMP Ceramic Rebuild Curing Agent contains organic amine compounds which are harmful if swallowed. After prolonged exposure or repeated skin contact it may cause irritation, sensitization and/or dermatitis.
Emergency and First Aid Procedures


  • Eye Contact - Irrigate with clean water for 15 minutes and call a physician.
  • Skin Contact - Wash with soap and water.
  • Inhalation - Remove to fresh air and provide oxygen if necessary.
  • Ingestion - Call a physician at once. Give milk or white of egg beaten with water. Then give a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water to induce vomiting.
Protection Procedures
If used in a confined or an enclosed area, use an air supplied mask or respirator with canister for organic vapors and provide mechanical exhaust ventilation. Use protective gloves, safety glasses, and protective clothing. Avoid contact with skin and clothing. Contaminated clothing should be laundered before wearing again. Contaminated shoes should be thoroughly cleaned before wearing again.
HUDCO CMP Ceramic Rebuild Resin and Curing Agent should be stored in a cool, dry area. Shelf life is a minimum of one year in unopened containers when stored at 70° F – 85° F.
