- Fairly easy to open packaging
- The cleanest epoxy I've ever used
- Has now sealed my gas tank for over a month
- Once you open the package, you are pretty much stuck with using the whole package (actually covers a lot of area too)
- Isn't the easiest to mix at 40 F you may want it warmer for working with this product. (I understand most epoxies are like this too)
Overall a great product for a great price. Covers a lot more area than I had expected from pic online and the 30 gram weight label.
To those who may wonder, I had pinholes on my tank toward the bottom, I have no problem with filling my ~20 gallon tank completely.
The tank is plastic and has a significant crak about 7 inches in length and 1/8" wide at the middle, and a little less towards the ends. The crack was towards the top of the tank and ran along the upper side of the tank fairings, parallel to the ground. This is a common crack on these dirtbike fuel tanks.
A new tank is $225 and a used one around $130. As the bike is just a beater, those costs were much too high. The previous owner attempted to repair the tank with some sort of epoxy, but it failed miserably and leaked fuel all over.
I used this product and followed the directions completely with additional precautions taken to ensure success. I drained the tank, aired it out overnight, knocked off the old epoxy, sanded the crack with one inch on all sides, cleaned the area with CRC Brake Cleaner, warmed the tank inside the house and applied the epoxy mix.
Note that at first, the epoxy went on with some viscosity and stayed where I put in. In about 30-45 seconds it became quite warm, almost hot, and was much more water-like in viscosity. I had to tilt the tank to keep it from running off. Prepare accordingly.
Now, for the result. The tank is sealed! The bike was taken for multiple rides with new and experienced riders, some of whom lightly crashed, but the epoxy is still holding strong. I am very satisfied. The package includes a fiberglass cloth that goes over the first coat and then you apply a second coat on top. I think this really helps to keep everything together versus just plain epoxy.
Time will tell on the longevity, but so far it is working very well. Even if I have to reapply every few years, it's worth the effort to save $200+.
But ... BUY two of these unless it is for a very small repair. I needed just a little bit more, and had to wait for the second order to finish the repair job.
