HARTFORD, Conn. (March 16, 2015) — Chemical products manufacturer Permatex has launched its Permatex Fuel Tank Repair Epoxy Stick, designed to quickly and easily fix metal gas tanks and containers.
This industrial strength epoxy is resistant to most solvents, according to Permatex, and features a unique, ethanol resistant formula. Ideal uses include filling holes and damaged seams.
The product comes as a two-part putty in stick form, which the company said makes it very easy to measure and mix the proper amount of epoxy. Permatex added that the putty formulation also makes it easier to apply to the damaged area.
The finished repair sets in one hour and can be drilled, sanded, threaded or filed after five hours. When fully cured, Permatex said the epoxy is able to withstand moderate temperatures and does not shrink after application.
Permatex also offers epoxy sticks designed for use in steel, plastic, hi-temp, and water applications.
