Permanently Repairs Steel, Aluminum, Fiberglass and Plastic Gas Tanks : SUPER STRONG EPOXY!
Includes 8 oz of Part A and 4 oz Part B in Cans
Mini Kit Is Ideal For Very Small Tanks Up To 3 Gallons
Phenol Novolac Epoxies are a new breed of chemical resistant
materials, able to withstand permanent immersion of many harsh solvents,
fuels and oils. This Epoxy has much better bond strength than single
component products, with strengths of up to 3000 PSI, and this higher
strength reduces the need for a clinically clean surface, as the epoxy
actually prefers to bond to a rough rusty surface. Our new phenol
novolac is more thixotropic, which means it 'hangs' on the tank walls
during the coating process. This gives a thicker overall coating. There
is more volume of material in the kit to allow for this.
What else can you use Gas Tank Sealer for?
- A corrosion and chemical resistant coating. ie: battery compartments.
- A high strength adhesive where plenty of working time is needed.
- A potting compound, to encapsulate electronics
- A non-skid surface, just bed in aluminum oxide.
- Relining old potato peeler machines (Hobart type) - coat liner and bed in aluminum oxide.
- Repair leaks in concrete vessels. Add fine sand to make a mortar.
- Bonds to almost anything except polyethylene (gas tanks are not made
of polyethylene). Bonds to wood, plastic, rubber, concrete, metals.
- Making high quality molds - virtually no shrinkage on curing.
- Thin cross section repair of sheared parts, such as; broken cups, dishes, or a split leg on a chair.
All traces of oil and gasoline should first be removed by pouring
about 1 pint of acetone or lacquer thinner into the tank, and rotating
the tank several times to thoroughly sluice the sides with solvent.
Dispose of the contaminated solution.
When recoating your gas tank from failed Kreem or POR-15 tank
sealers, remove the old, failed coating using a paint stripper
containing Methylene Chloride.
Place a hand full of drywall screws into the tank and shake them
around vigorously for several minutes. These will dislodge any loose
particles of rust. In the case of Fiberglass and plastic tanks, this
will rough up the tank interior, improving adhesion.
Rinse out the tank with about 1 pint of acetone or lacquer thinner,
then set aside and allow to dry. Use an airline to blow air into the
tank to aid drying.
Apply duct tape or masking tape to any weeping seams, holes or porous
areas. This will stop any Gas Tank Sealer from oozing out, and will
allow it to bridge over the hole. Plug the outlet ports with putty or
Play-Doh. Mix up the required amount of Gas Tank Sealer (one unit should
treat two small motorcycle tanks or one large one) If you are only
treating ONE small tank, then divide parts A & B in half. You could
use a dipstick to gauge this.
Mix the two chemicals for approx 2 minutes. BAD MIXING AND BAD MEASURING IS THE #1 CAUSE OF FAILURE!!
Pour into the tank, then immediately seal up the filler hole with
Gladwrap and an elastic band. Swill the tank around in every direction
for several minutes to obtain a good layer of Gas Tank Sealer over all
surfaces. Remove the filler cap,Gladwrap seal, and pour out any excess.
Allow to drain upside down for a few minutes.
If you have a built in
fuel filter, blow air into the fuel line port for about 10 minutes. This
will clear the filter of any Gas Tank Sealer.
Scrape off any excess with a sharp knife at this point (usually about
40-60 Min after mixing) Place the tank in a warm 70-90 f place and
allow to cure overnight. In the case of alcohol fuels, allow 3-5 days at
room temperature, or 24 hours at 120 de
