  • Coal tar epoxy... A few were asking.

    If any of you who asked about coal tar epoxy are still interested, please contact me. I have about 2 gallons left.

    A 60 gallon tank takes about 1 quart for 2 coats.

    Price is $10 per quart + shipping (which I am not sure of the cost there).

            Hate to show my ignorance, but I have been pretty good at it.

            What is the purpsoe of the coal tar epoxy? Does it "seal" the tank?

            Used on aluminum?

            Thanks

              Has many applications,sealing the tank is just one of the many uses.Aluminum is prone to galvanic corrosion especially when there is lack of oxygen and moisture is present or trapped next to the aluminum.As is the case of some boat tanks surrounded by wet foam.Other things corrode aluminum as well like certain metals and rubbers.Coal tar epoxy inhibits all of the above from corroding the aluminum particularly in a wet moist enviorment.A good soure of freash air (vent) to the tank coffin is ideal.A question not asked is ignorant, hope this helps

                    Another thing I didn't get taken care of. I had a Saturday morning bonzai run 3 hours away and then back to deliver some lumber to my dad's hunting camp (thats what you get when you have a pick-up truck). I will get on it this week! Sorry![B)]

                        I have the stuff put into the quart cans and I am still trying to find some time to get over to the Shipping Place to get an estimate on shipping. Please hang tight. Maybe this weekend I can get over there.
