Red White & Blue fuel tank liner/sealant kits contain all the components needed to repair tanks which are rusted inside and holed as a result of corrosion provided that the instructions are followed the kit contains enough material to cover the largest of fuel tanks. The coating film is formed from a mixture of 100% solids that means that if the wet mix is 5mm or 55mm thick it remains so even when cured. It will cure at any temperature above 5 degrees Celsius with the only difference being in the time taken to gel point. For example the mix if left in the jar will achieve an exothermic temp of about 60-70 degrees and gel in 30-45 minutes at ambient temp of 25 degrees this may stretch to 40-60 minutes at 5 degrees. However when the instructions are followed and the mixture is poured into the tank after 3 minutes the tank acting as a kind of heat sink coupled with the thinner mass layer gives a working time of 1- 2 hours and overnight cure in the commonly ambient temperatures and humidity’s in most parts of Australia. Red White & Blue will always cure once the white and blue contents are mixed and adhere to clean no greasy surfaces. It will fill holes up to 5mm in diameter when these are supported from one side until cure is complete even larger holes can be filled with suitable care and preparation.
Motorcycle fuel tanks rust there are a number of reasons for this. But the most commonly is because of the use pattern most motorcycles generally fall into the area of leisure use with long lay-up periods between uses. The rider comes home after a ride on a warm day the tank is nearly empty the bike is put in the shed or left under cover the air cools with the evening the moist vapour in the tank becomes saturated as a result of lowering temperature water condenses on the inside runs down to the bottom of the tank and soon rusts.
