How to Use Tank Cure and Sealer
Tank cure is a product that is great to restore an old fuel tank. First, you clean the tank inside and then add a new coating. The coating is fuel-resistant and it can be used in metal tanks. Do not use them for epoxy, polymers or plastic tanks. This will not make a good combination with the epoxy in the coating. It might come loose after a short time and then your tank is ruined.
When do you want to use this product? If you have a tank that is a little old, slightly rusty or filthy on the inside you can use this product. First thing you have to do is remove the tank from your bike. Then take everything off your tank. Take away the fuel cap, fuel tap and other possible items, for example, a fuel pump.
Now be careful during the cleaning stage. You don’t want the anti-rust or cleaner fluid in your eyes or on your skin. Wear gloves, overalls and safety glasses. Clean the tank on the inside and let it dry. Let it dry for a couple of days inside your house. You want it to be warm and very dry on the inside. You don’t want new rust!
Very important that after drying you close all the holes in the tank with tape or an old inner tube or something. Now mix the two components to make the sealer. Put the sealer in the tank and start moving the tank around so it is evenly spread through the whole tank. After you did this. Do this for at least 15 minutes.
Make sure that the holes for fuel are still open. Let the tank dry in at room temperature and dry space for at least 7 days. Now you can put everything, back on and try your new old tank!
One purchase of tank cure can be used for a tank with a maximum capacity of 15 to 20 litres.
Have fun with your work and afterwards newly restored tank!
