    Hello, I know it's not exactly a plumbing question, but I didn't know where else to put my query. please feel free to move it to a more suitable section.

    See pic attached. Can anyone suggest a product I can use to fill a small chip and a few hairline cracks in my sink please.

    Many thanks

    Like the other, I wouldn't bother. Those cracks are due to the chip and they will only grow over time.

    If you wish though, Milliput is an old remedy for chips and scratches in porcelain.

    As Madrab said, Milliput works very well for minor chips. Once set finish off with wet and dry sand paper.

    Sounds like a lot of hard work for cracks though.

    To ensure Milliput adheres to the basin crack, what care or precautions do you need to take to ensure that it is dry?

    I would hope to use customer's tissue and hair dryer.


    Once needed to ask a bald customer for a hair dryer. He was amused but had one for his girl friend ( who was not bald! )
     
  15. Tony,when you run out of silicone grease Do you ask your customer for some vaseline or any similar lubricant which is rubber safe,

    Ive use quite a bit of miliput superfine white for repairing chipped china and it can be shaped with wet hands...even sets under water so getting the repair area dry may not be an issue so long as its clean?
