THIS PRODUCT IS NOT FOR USE ON PLASTIC FUEL TANKS. The repair resin is designed to begin to harden within 8 – 10 minutes and cures in 30 minutes. Read all directions before beginning repair. Repairs can be made ideally at temperatures from 50°F to 75°F (10°C to 25°C).
Repairs made at lower temperatures will take longer to cure. Repairs can be made on slow leaking cracks up to 4 inches in length and holes up to 3/8 inch in diameter.
1. Remove gas cap to vent tank. Make sure there is adequate ventilation.
2. If leak is large, drain tank or reduce liquid level to at least 2 inches below the damaged area.
3. Prepare damaged area by removing any oil, grease, tar or dirt, etc. from repair area. A
4. Sand the affected area to at least 1 inch beyond the damage. Clean area with alcohol swab. B,C
5. Break off the appropriate size piece of putty and place over the leak. D
6. Cut the fiberglass cloth to fit within the sanded area.
7. The resin must be mixed and applied in less than 8 minutes as the resin will begin to harden. Mix the resin as follows: Burst the seam that separates the two materials by applying pressure to one side. Knead the contents of the pouch back and forth until the mixture is of uniform color (mix for 2 minutes maximum).
8. Cut off the top of the pouch and dispense some of the resin mixture onto the damaged area.
9. Spread the resin mixture in a uniform layer with the supplied brush onto the area to be covered by the fiberglass. (Note: The material will become warm to touch.) E
10. Place the fiberglass over the resin covered area. Spread the remaining mixture over the fiberglass until it is completely saturated. F,G
11. Taper the edges of the repair area beyond the fiberglass. Smooth the repaired area with the brush.
Repair will be complete when the resin cures in 30 minutes. Tank may be refilled after 30 minutes or when the repair is tack free.
