Tank Sealer Tech Questions


Recommended Posts

Hi There,

we currently laser cut and weld our own fuel / hydraulic tanks from 250 grade mild steel. We have been looking for a product which could speed up the manufacture of these.

i have a few questions about your tank sealer product:

  1. I see on another post, a user asked what the life expectancy is of the tank sealer. The answer was 10 years at least. What effects could we expect outside of the sealer life expectancy?
  2. We powdercoat our tanks after leak tests, i read on another post that it is recommended to use the tank sealer after powdercoating as the heat in the baking process may be a bit much. Could the tank cleaner and and rust preventer damage our powdercoating if it came into contact?
  3. What is the maximum hole or seam gap size that this product can handle?
  4. If we accidentally get some of the tank sealer on a powdercoated surface, what would you recommend to cleanup?
  5. Can the excess sealer pored out of a tank be used again?
  6. What is the shelf life of the tank sealer once the can / drum is opened?
  7. What is the best way to dispose of the cleaner and rust treatment?


Thanks in advance!

Here are the answers to your questions.

1) We have tests running for 15 and 20 years with no adverse effects on the Tank Sealer, so we are unsure as we have not been able to cause the Tank Sealer to fail yet.

2) KBS Klean and RustBlast (when used according to the directions) will not harm a correctly powder coated surface.

3) The size of the tip of a pin. We sell other products like BackBone Mesh, NuMetal Epoxy Putty and KBS Patch for larger holes or seams.

4) Wipe of with solvent immediately.

5) No. Let the drained out Tank Sealer harden and throw it away.

6) 6 months as long as it is stored correctly.

7) Always check with your local ordinances. Most people dilute well and let it run off the driveway, but always follow your local ordinances.

Please always read carefully the complete Tank Sealer Directions.

If you have any additional questions, please let us know. We are happy to help.
