  • Q:

    Have a weed whacker fuel tank that has cracked along the seam on top, about 2" long. This is a GAS/OIL mix tank. What, if any product can you put on this. They are very proud of the price they are charging for a new tank. This is a white clear plastic tank.
    Thank you...

      A:

      I'm happy to help, Doug! This Permatex Plastic Tank Repair Kit (Part No. 09100) is not for use on plastic fuel tanks. You may find that J-B Weld PlasticWeld (Part No. 50132), Kwik Cold Weld Epoxy (Part No. 8276) or ClearWeld (Part No. 50112) may seal your fuel tank. Most if not all repairs made in this fashion on a fuel tank will eventually fail. The recommended fix for your trimmer/edger would be to replace the fuel tank.

  • Q:

    burned a hole in my lawnmower gas tank about the size between a nickel and a quarter....(little bigger then 3/8 inch)....right on the corner.....any way to repair this?

      A:

      Good morning, Dick! No, I would not recommend this repair kit for a gas tank hole bigger than 3/8 inches. Some epoxy repair kit might work, but without knowing the exact condition of the gas tank hole it is hard to recommend a repair kit.

  • Q:

    Could this be used on an unpressurized hydraulic reservoir?

    the fluid is mineral based, but would be relatively hot.

      A:

      Good question, Ron! I need to know what type of tank is made from. As far as the fluid and temperature go, those are the least of your worries. Even with no pressure polyethylene and polypropylene are engineered to reject adhesion.

  • Q:

    Does the water tank need to be empty, before using this product to make the repair?
    Asked on 3/25/2014 by Sam from Aitutaki, Cook Islands

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi Sam, great question! This kit is not for use on Plastic Fuel Tanks.The repair resin is designed 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 cracks up to 4 inches in length and holes up to 3/8 inch in diameter. 1. Drain tank or reduce fluid level at least 2 inches below damaged area. 2. Prepare damaged area by removing any oil, grease, tar or dirt, etc. from repair area. Sand the affected area to at least 1 inch beyond the damage. A 3. For cracks that may continue to expand, drill a small hole at each end of the crack. 4. Clean the area with alcohol swab. B 5. Cut the fiberglass cloth to fit within the sanded area. 6. 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). C 7. Cut off the top of the pouch and dispense some of the resin mixture onto the damaged area. D 8. 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.) 9. Place the fiberglass over the resin covered area. Spread the remaining mixture over the fiberglass until it is completely saturated. E,F 10. Taper the edges of the repair area beyond the fiberglass. Smooth the repaired area with the brush. G 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.
