Re: Diesel Tank Painting

This doesn't really seem to be the ideal steel coating, as expensive as it may be.
This material is designed for fillet sealing of fuel
tanks and other aircraft fuselage sealing applications.
PR-1776M Class B is a two-part, manganese dioxide cured
Permapol® P-5 modified polysulfide. The uncured material is a low
sag, thixotropic paste suitable for application by extrusion gun or
spatula. It cures at room temperature to form a resilient sealant
having excellent adhesion to common aircraft substrates.
Aircraft substrates. Steel?

But it will work on steel or plastic.

Re: Diesel Tank Painting

Don1500 is 100% correct. I had welds on my aluminum tank that had daylight showing through. I glued new skins on to the exterior of my tanks with a product from a different manufacturer (but the same stuff) and it pressure tested for a week. I don't think it will ever leak again.
my 2 cents

Re: Diesel Tank Painting

Call the people at HEMPEL (Hempel) and ask them for advise. They really know their stuff and have boat/tank paints for all uses.
