Free Form® Habitat® Epoxy Putty is a mix-by-hand putty that is used to create textured or highly detailed display pieces. Habitat® is solvent-free and contains no VOC's.

Working time is 60 minutes and cure time is 16 hours at room temperature at 73°F / 23°C. Epoxy cures to a very hard, heat resistant material that is easily painted.

Use with Habitat® Folding Powder – fold powder into epoxy putty to thicken and reduce sag when applied to a vertical surface. Folding Powder also reduces stickiness and makes the epoxy more handle-able.

Once putty is applied, it can be stamped with a silicone rubber stamp to create repeating patterns with intricate detail over a large surface area. Surface can be smoothed with alcohol or water. New Habitat® will bond to cured Habitat® without delamination. Habitat® will not melt foam, and can be used as an EPS foam coating.

Habitat® is suitable for interior and exterior use. It is certified "aquarium safe" and used by aquariums to create hyperrealistic coral and other aquarium displays. Habitat® is also used for general sculpting and theming applications.

Free Form® Habitat® is also an excellent repair cement and bonds permanently to itself, PVC, acrylic sheeting, wood, many metals, plastics and foams.

Free Form Detailer® is a low viscosity liquid that makes adding details and detail effects to the surface of Free Form Sculpt® Epoxy Putty easy.

Control and Precision - Detailer® liquid enhances sculpting precision which allows you to quickly integrate dynamic strokes, fine lines, minute, and repeating texture details (such as hair, fur, or feathering). With Free Form Detailer® You can also smooth, stamp, extrude, etc.

Detailer® keeps putty from sticking to sculpting tools and will not pull or stretch putty. Keeping tools clean means no build up and greater accuracy when sculpting.

The more Detailer® you apply, the more workable the putty surface becomes; giving you a broader range of possible surface textures and finishes.

Applied as a finishing coat, Detailer® will leave a glossy surface.

Unlike water or general purpose solvents, Detailer® does not leave a chalky residue on uncured or cured epoxy and does not affect paint adhesion. Detailer® can also be used for clean-up and will help loosen and remove uncured epoxy from most solid surfaces.
