Apply RustSeal In Thin Coats | Tip Of The Month

RustSeal

APPLY RUSTSEAL IN THIN COATS

Remember that RustSeal should be applied in THIN coats. Applying too heavily, will cause running and/or sagging on vertical surfaces, and possible bubbling on horizontal surfaces. As RustSeal cures, it releases a small amount of carbon dioxide. If allowed to “puddle”, the top of the RustSeal directly exposed to the ambient humidity in the air (the actual catalyst for RustSeal) will begin to "skin" over. This "skinning over" is much like that of chocolate pudding and blocks the release of the afore mentioned carbon dioxide causing bubbles. By applying thin coats, this film cures through and through all at once.

Tip of the Month – Tank Sealer

PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE THAT WILL BE REWARDED…

Over the years, one of the BEST TIPS that we can give to people who are sealing a tank is to BE PATIENT. Proper prep and sealing IS NOT a lunch hour project. The KBS 3 Step System works perfectly if the Instructions are followed which includes:

  • Be Patient and allow the AquaKlean the time to thoroughly dissolve all the oily fuel residues before rinsing.
  • Be Patient and allow the RustBlast to soak and disintegrate the rust in your tank before rinsing.
  • Be Patient while waiting for the tank interior to dry completely as the tank can NEVER be too dry!
  • Be Patient and allow the tank to cool to room temperature before applying the sealer.
  • Be Patient when sloshing the sealer around to insure complete coverage.
  • Be Patient when draining any & all excess sealer from the tank.
  • Be Patient while waiting for the sealer to cure.
