Helpful Tips

  • 1

    Skip the degreasing, scuffing, or roughening steps. This adhesive requires zero surface prep to form a strong bond so a dry wipe to clear off any dust or dirt is all you need.

  • 2

    Dispense equal length straight lines from each tube to get the exact 2:1 mix ratio from the different sized tubes.

  • 3

    Be sure to mix thoroughly together until you have a consistent gray color through out, but avoid whipping air into the adhesive as you mix. It can cause air bubbles and slow down set time.

  • 4

    During application, be sure to clamp or hold objects securely in place and leave to set for 30 minutes.

  • 5

    Be sure to keep materials out of direct sunlight while the adhesive is curing.

  • 6

    Store it in your basement instead of your garage. Avoid the summer heat that shortens adhesive shelf life, and get more repairs done by storing in a cool place.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. Tank Bond Heavy Duty Advanced Epoxy is made with different two-part adhesive technology than typical epoxies that is used in heavy duty applications from tank repair to automotive manufacturing. It is a reactive chemistry that has a longer working time but faster cure speed than typical epoxies. It also cures with flexibility which results in an extremely high impact resistance level compared to brittle epoxies. Best of all, this formula requires zero surface prep and can form a strong bond to a substrate regardless of any surface coatings or how smooth the material may be.

Yes. It will give off a somewhat strong smell during application and while curing. This formula should be mixed and applied in a work area with plenty of ventilation. The smell of Tank Bond HD Advanced Epoxy will fade by the time the adhesive sets and cures (20-30 minutes).

Tank Bond HD Advanced Epoxy will cure in as fast as 30 minutes on most materials. For materials like wood, ceramics, and stone, it will take 4-6 hours to reach cured bond strength.

The mix ratio of Tank Bond HD Advanced Epoxy is 2:1, or 2 parts of the resin to 1 part of the accelerator. The resin comes in a larger tube with a larger opening to dispense more material, while the accelerator comes in a smaller tube with a smaller opening. It is recommended that users squeeze out the material in two equal length lines to get a 2:1 ratio from the two different tube sizes.

The mixed formula will cure to a dark gray color.

12 months as long as it is stored at room temperature.

Zero Surface Prep means a strong, durable bond can be formed on any clean, dry surface which can be achieved with a dry wipe down. Ideal performance for typical epoxies requires several steps of surface prep to form a good bond which includes completely degreasing the surface and then roughening it to allow an epoxy to bond.

4x Tougher means a bond formed with Tank Bond Heavy Duty Advanced Epoxy can withstand impact forces 4 times what a typical epoxy bond can. This means your bond will stand up to more impact, warping, and vibration without failing a tougher, more durable bond.
