Permatex has introduced an industrial strength epoxy in a stick formulation that provides a quick and easy fix on both metal gas tanks and containers.
Permatex Fuel Tank Repair epoxy stick is resistant to most solvents, features a unique, ethanol resistant formula and is ideally suited for filling holes and damaged seams.
Permatex Fuel Tank Repair epoxy stick comes as a two-part putty in a convenient stick form, which makes it very easy to measure and mix the proper amount of epoxy. The company says the putty formulation also makes it easier to apply to the damaged area.
The finished repair sets in just one hour and can be drilled, sanded, threaded, or filed after five hours. When fully cured, Permatex Fuel Tank Repair epoxy is able to withstand moderate temperatures and does not shrink after application, according to the company.
Permatex also offers epoxy sticks designed for use in steel, plastic, hi-temp, and water applications.
