Why use an internal tank coating?
Most fuel tank coatings have and will eventually fail due to the recent introduction of ethanol, FLOWLINER ARMOUR COAT is resistant to alcohol products such as ethanol.
The fuel tank must be thoroughly clean making sure that all traces of stale fuel and oil have been removed, if your tank is rusty, treat with a rust remover such as FLOWLINER BIO-RUST a biodegradable safe method of treating rusty components.
Mix the FLOWLINER BIO-RUST @ a ratio of up to 20 parts of hot water to 1 part of FLOWLINER BIO-RUST, as a guide a one kilogram unit of FLOWLINER BIO-RUST will treat up to a 20 to 30 litre tank, when the tank is full leave for 12 to 24 hours do not leave the tank sealed up. Drain the fluid into a plastic container; this can now be used as a dipping solution for any other rusty items.
If some rust is evident in the tank this can be easily removed by agitating the tank with some sharp gravel, sand, lengths of small chains or nuts & bolts in a litre of FLOWLINER BIO-RUST, then wash the tank thoroughly with a hot mild detergent wash and then rinse thoroughly and leave to dry.
If the inside surface area is smooth it is advisable to treat the area to help with the bonding process, this can be achieved with shaking the tank with decking or dry wall screws to etch the surface area, failure in this process could affect the bonding process.
We advise rinsing the tank with acetone or gun wash/cellulose thinners, all safety procedures should be adhered to.
The fuel tank must be 100% dry and free of any deposits which may inhibit correct adhesion.
Pour the small container FLOWLINER ARMOUR COAT B into the opened tin of FLOWLINER ARMOUR COAT A and mix the FLOWLINER together for five minutes.
Gelling times will vary with temperature but will be around 50 to 90 minutes, touch dry in 12 hours, fully cured in 7 days
DO NOT SEAL THE TANK WHILE CURING AND DO NOT FILL WITH PETROL UNTIL FULLY CURED.
All work and fuel testing should be carried out prior to refinishing the exterior of the fuel tank, as all parameters for the coating are out of our control any liabilities lie with the user.
