NO GOODS manufactured or sold by Advanced Materials Technology Pty Ltd will be accepted for a credit if returned after one (1) calendar month of original invoice date.

To return goods that are not faulty (i.e. because you changed your mind) they must be unused and, in the condition, they were delivered to you in. This does mean that, unless found faulty, we are unable to accept returns for:

  • Opened containers of resin, hardener, silicone or chemical release agent, unless found to be faulty or defective.
  • Unrolled and improperly re-rolled fabrics, unless found to be faulty or defective.
  • Any product that you have subsequently cut, shaped, broken or modified, unless found to be faulty or defective.

Refund of Delivery Charges (Cancelled Orders)

If you return an order in its entirety, then your outbound delivery charges will also be refunded (for orders within the South Africa’s Local Area’s.

If you return only part of an order, then the outbound delivery charge refund will be calculated based on the total postage cost of the original order (using standard service) minus the cost to send the items you are keeping (using standard service). Due to the way that shipping costs are incremented, this will often result in no delivery charge refund being due.

Faulty or Defective Goods

Any goods found to be faulty or defective and notified to us within 7 days of delivery can be returned to us for a full refund.

Refund of Delivery Charges (Faulty/Defective Goods)

If you are returning faulty or defective goods, then your outbound and return delivery costs will be refunded in full (for orders from within South Africa’s Local Area’s.)

In the event that you are returning faulty or defective goods which were ordered as part of a larger order then the outbound delivery charge refund will be calculated based on the total postage cost of the original order (using standard service) minus the cost to send the items you are keeping (using standard service).

Please check the box to acknowledge our return’s policy, by doing so you agree to our Return’s Policy of AMT Composites stated above.

General Processing Recommendations

Working With The Clay

Alien Clay™ is not self-supporting so an armature may need to be constructed for figurative work. Traditional wood, metal and silicone clay tools are recommended for working with the clay.

Smoothing The Clay Surface

Clay scrapers and rake tools are often used to initially make the clay surface uniform. Solvents such as naphtha, clear mineral spirits and turpentine are aggressive solvents which can be used to quickly soften and dissolve the surface of Alien Clay™. Citrus based solvents such as D-limonene can also be used but may cause inhibition when molding the clay using silicone rubber. 99% Isopropyl alcohol can be used to smooth the clay surface if a less aggressive solvent effect is desired. NOTE: If isopropyl myristate is used on the surface of Alien Clay™, the surface will remain soft, and it will not return to the original hardness.

Making A Slip Or Slurry

Solvents such as naphtha, clear mineral spirits and turpentine can also be used to dissolve the clay to a workable slip or slurry. This liquid solution can then be used to create texture effects, join clay together, and coat clay surfaces.

Alien Clay Container – Preparing For Use

The Alien Clay Container is specially designed for holding, softening and liquefying the clay. It is designed with handles and pour spouts to minimize the chance of burning skin while using heated clay.

TO MELT OR SOFTEN CLAY IN CONTAINER, REMOVE DIVIDER PAPER, REPLACE LID (TO PREVENT WARPING) AND WARM CONTAINER IN A DEDICATED HEAT SOURCE; DO NOT EXCEED 220°F / 104°C

Use hand protection when handling hot container. Container contains two pour spouts to make pouring liquified clay easier. Alien Clay™ can be cleaned off of tools and surfaces with naphtha or 99% isopropyl alcohol.

Heating Equipment Options

  • Temperature Controlled Crock Pots®
  • Scientific/Laboratory Oven
    Hot Box With Conventional Temperature Monitor
  • Warming Oven Dedicated For Clay Only (Do Not Use Home Oven)
  • Microwaves Are NOT Recommended Due To Uneven Heating And Potential Burning.

Softening The Clay

Alien Clay™ is most often warmed to a temperature (Soft = 115°F/46°C; Medium = 115°F/46°C; Hard = 120°F/49°C) to soften it. When it returns to room temperature it also returns to the initial firmness.

Troweling The Clay

Alien Clay™ can also be heated to a state soft enough to be spread across a surface. (Soft = 135°F/57°C, Medium = 145°F/63°C; Hard = 155°F/68°C) As these temperatures are very hot and can cause burns, a metal trowel (or similar spreader) is needed to apply the hot clay safely. When troweling, a clay can be spread easily across a vertical armature surface with minimal to no slumping in a ¼ inch thickness (1.27 cm).

Brushing The Clay

Alien Clay™ at (Soft = 170°F/77°C; Medium = 180°F/82°C; Hard = 190°F/88°C) is considered the brushing temperature of the clay. This temperature produces a lower viscosity (thinner) clay, suitable for initial coating on armatures or other surfaces that can be applied with a brush. A small scale test against surfaces to check for suitability is always recommend.

Liquefying The Clay

Alien Clay™ can be liquefied and poured (Soft = 212°F/100°C; Medium = 212°F/100°C; Hard = 212°F/100°C). This method is utilized to make exact reproductions (called castings) of a form by pouring the liquefied clay into a mold; that can be further shaped and revised. Clay might experience separation of the base materials during the heating process. Periodically mixing the liquid clay during the process and before pouring will ensure uniformity of the clay. It is recommended that the mold be heated to 150°F/66°C prior to pouring liquefied clay into mold for best surface detail.

Clean Up

Alien Clay™ can be cleaned off of tools and surfaces with naphtha or 99% isopropyl alcohol.
