Alsiflex is the only flexible metal filler on the market. Used for all kinds of finishing applications (including the repair of aluminium boats). This filler is flexible and shock resistant, does not absorb moisture and will repair surfaces made of metal, galvanized sheet metal, and aluminium.
Application instructions for Flexible Metal Filler
Used for repairing large surfaces in cars, trucks, aluminium boats, roofs, door panels, bonnets, boot lids, etc. Can be used on any metal and some plastic surfaces that require flexibility and that will not absorb moisture.
Make sure area to be repaired in clean, dry and rough.
Mix contents from can thoroughly. Take out a little Alsiflex from can and place it on your clean work mat (clean smooth flat metal surface or other clean flat mixing surface). Add 2 % to 3 % hardener to the contents outside the can and mix thoroughly. Apply Alsiflex generously in layers over area that is to be repaired.
If you find that it is taking too long for Alsiflex to harden you can add some more hardener the next time as this will speed up the hardening process. Normally Alsiflex takes 30 to 40 minutes to harden after which it can be sanded.
Alsiflex starts to harden very quickly (3 to 4 minutes) so mix small quantities at a time. Avoid inserting the mixing paddle into the Alsiflex can after you have used it to mix it with the hardener. This will contaminate and harden the contents in the can and make it unusable for future use.

Testimonials for ALSIFLEX
I did not believe you guys when you told me that this product (Alsiflex) would not crack or absorb moisture and still remain flexible. You have made a believer out of me. I used it to repair my aluminium boat 2 years ago and am pleased to say that it has held up very well and saved me a lot of money. Thanks a bunch
