It is possible to dilute the product with max 5% of ethyl alcohol.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR A CORRECT APPLICATION OF THE TANK REGENERATOR
1) PREPARATORY PHASE
Remove the petrol taps and occlude the holes with pressed cloth or using wooden / cork pins. Protect the fuel cap in a light polyethylene sheath or similar.
2) DEGREASING AND CLEANING
Clean the tank by introducing solvent (the use of trichlorethylene is recommended in the case of tanks that have crammed oil, mixture or greasy substances in general). Shake the tank vigorously so as to be able to remove the deposits and after a few hours of maceration, purge. Rinse with running water until clear liquid is obtained.
3) REMOVAL OF RUST
At this stage, the anti-rust acid RUST SNIPER must be introduced into the tank by shaking it occasionally. The complete removal of rust can take several hours depending on the progress of the same. Once complete rust removal is complete, empty the tank and rinse thoroughly with running water. Then dry the tank with compressed air and / or with a washing aid using 90 ° alcohol (the characteristic of alcohol allows the absorption of residual humidity).
To avoid the formation of a new oxidation process, go to the next step as soon as possible.
4) APPLICATION OF THE ENAMEL
In this phase the two-component enamel TANK REGENERATOR should be applied. - Before proceeding with this last phase, to facilitate the setting of the product, it is possible to proceed with the application of a base coat with ZINC PRIMER. -
Moving on to the application of the tank, weigh the quantity of part A that is thought to be sufficient to treat the entire size of the tank and through the catalysis ratio indicated on the package (100: 20), weigh the relative dose of catalyst (for this process we recommend the use of a precision balance). Combine both components and with the help of a flat spatula, mix vigorously and carefully for a couple of minutes, trying to scrape the product also from the edges of the container. Then pour the mixture into the tank and swirl it several times and slowly to evenly distribute the product on all sides of the tank.
Tilt the tank forward to make sure that the drain resin does not block the petrol channels (in case it happens, just remove the resin with the tip of a drill) and let the product dry at room temperature. The drying process takes about 24 hours, but under certain environmental conditions it may be dry to the touch already after about 12 hours. The complete maturation of the product, however, takes several days.
N.B: DO NOT PUT PETROL INTO THE TREATED TANK BEFORE A WEEK!
