24 Years Experience with sealing Ethanol Sensitive Fuel Tanks
For use in Metal or Fibreglass/ Composite Tanks 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 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.
To prepare the metal tank, simply place several nuts & bolts, or a piece of old bike chain inside and about a pint of lacquer thinner, MEK or toluene. Shake the tank around to dislodge any loose particles, then drain off the liquid and allow to dry. This procedure removes any oils left over from the fuel.
Block off any weeping seams or holes by placing duct tape over them, and fill any ports with putty, then mix up the Epoxy Gas Tank Sealer and pour into the tank. Slowly rotate the tank in every direction for several minutes, then pour out any excess resin. Due to the Ethanol content allow to harden for 7 days before putting into use. If doing two small tanks, ACCURATELY measure out half of each container and mix together.
Epoxy Gas Tank Sealer (16oz) coats up to 2 x 15 litre tanks.
