Petrol Tank Sealant
« on: 15.05. 2020 15:52 »
I have used POR15 in the past and found it fine. I have another project that has a couple of pin holes near the bottom weld. I appreciate that it can take 96 hours to cure once treated, but is it possible to build up more than one layer before or after curing. Thank you.

I really like the Caswell plating product. I did my SR tank 20 years ago and keep ethanol laced gas in it. It has performed excellently. It goes on fairly thick.

Hi Muskrat. Very useful, I threw the old tin away and could not remember my options. Keep safe and thank you.

You could always do it properly and solder the pin holes...

Problem I have is the welded seam is also sweating and the seam is only 3mm wide, can't get in there to solder it. Appreciate all replies.
