200Lt mild steel diesel tank


Recommended Posts


I've almost finished making a mild steel 200Lt (44gal) diesel tank with baffles - the top panel has not been welded on.

I'm thinking of sealing it using your tank sealer.

as its a clean new tank will I have to use the cleaner and rust blast?

Are other primers or etch primers suitable?

I was thinking of brushing the sealer on most of the internal surfaces and the baffles leaving room for a hot zone before welding the top on and then doing the top by rolling it around. What do you think?

Yes. You will want to use the AquaKlean and RustBlast on a clean new tank. If you do not, you could have adhesion problems.

As for brushing and the welding and then rolling .. I would be concerned that the Tank Sealer would not stick to itself. I would just roll the entire inside of the tank. Does that make sense?
