- Tankfix establishes a fuel- and acid-proof long-term coating
- seals small leaks (folds, welds, small holes)
- solvent-containing, single-component polyurethane resin, thus universally applicable
Uncoated fuel tanks increasingly corrode since the introduction of unleaded petrol – the resulting rust particles harm fuel pumps, carburetors and injection systems. Even tanks of diesel- and two-stroke-vehicles suffer pitting corrosion. Tanks made of glass-fibre reinforced plastics (GRP) suffer too from the ingredients of modern fuels – with time they become leaky and moist.
Tank within the tank:
Tankfix saves the tank by virtually building a protective inner tank. Even already leaky, moist, smelly fuel tanks become 100% leakproof after the sealing!
Unlike most dual-component sealings, Tankfix does not become brittle, instead permanently retains a minimum of flexibility – thus ensuring a dependable adhesion even under future damages of the tank by vibrations or small accidents. Moreover the single-component resin cures slowly and gives the user more time to manage a faultless sealing process and to ensure that all surfaces are properly sealed.
Tankfix seals inner tank surfaces made of steel (also alloys), aluminum, stainless steel, copper, brass and plastics like carbon fibre, GRP, Kevlar, polyester oder vinyl ester (for plastics we strongly recommend to test the adhesiveness beforehand).
Even new tanks with smooth surfaces on the inside can be sealed with Tankfix, roughening is not necessary. Tankfix is not suitable for tanks made of polyethylene or polypropylene, this materials cannot be sealed permanently.
Tankfix withstands leaded and unleaded fuel, ethanol petrols like E5, E10 and E85, pure ethanol, pure petrol, two-stroke mix, diesel, aviation fuel, engine oil, gear oil, hydraulic oil/liquid, mineral oil, synthetic oil, two-stroke oil, upper cylinder oil and additives like WAGNER Octane Booster. Tankfix is not suitable for tanks used for coolant liquid.
With your tank now completely sealed and through the continued use of WAGNER Bactofin, the fuel supply system of your vehicle is well prepared for the future!
Note: For improved sealing of our cans, they are stored upside down after being filled at the factory. As a result, minimal quantities of sealing resin can emerge at the edge of the lid – this is intentional and taken into account in calculating the quantity of the content.
