I have been using this Tank Sealant for over 20 years on dozens of Experimental Aircraft. It has never given me any issues on any of the aircraft it was used on to seal up the composite fuel bays. Great stuff!
I used this product for an unrelated use. Sealing a 150 gallon coolant tank on a CNC mill. After 20 years of use, the tank was riddled with small holes from corrosion. After cleaning, sand blasting, and patching the holes, we applied two coats of this sealer and very pleased with the results. I dont expect to ever have a problem with this tank again.
Ecellent delivery time. Great product.
I have used this product in 3 costume made gastank... Works very well... Very good product. I recommend it.
