RUSTY'S TIPS ON HOW TO SEAL A PETROL TANK
Slosh is designed for the sealing of steel, aluminium and GRP (glass fibre) petrol and diesel tanks. Tests with dilutions of up to 85% corn ethanol show no breakdown of the coating, so it is more than capable of protection against the ethanol content of modern fuel.
IMPORTANT: it is vital that you remove or protect anything that you do not want Slosh to seal, including plugs, fuel gauge sender units, breather pipes and filters etc.
With the tank out of the vehicle, check for holes and any sealer that may have been used, any previosuly applied sealer will need to be removed with Rustbuster AS-10. Slosh will seal pin holes up to 500um in diameter (about 0.5mm) and seal weeping seams. Repair larger holes externally using PC-7 Epoxy Repair Paste. We strongly recommend the following procedure for cleaning and sealing your tank.
Thorough cleaning with Rustbuster Tank-Kleen caustic detergent to remove grease, dirt and fuel deposits is recommended. (If there are signs of rust in the tank, use a suitable rust remover, contact Rustbuster for more details.)
With the tank clean and bone dry, here is the procedure for sealing the tank:
Please note: a second coat of Slosh is not necessary, but if one is applied it must be done within ten hours. After ten hours it will not accept another coat and adding one will damage the integrity of the original coat.
