PTFE Tech-Patches for repairing metal or plastic gas tanks.
PTFE patches have a Teflon (PTFE) strip bonded onto one side. PTFE has excellent resistance to gasoline and diesel fuels, even aromatic (high octane) formulations. You will bond the PTFE side of the patch onto the damaged gas tank. With the PTFE patch, any hole and crack in either plastic or metal gas tanks will be permanently sealed.
Choose the correct Tech-Bond Kit for the type of gas tank that you need to fix.
For metal gas tanks/containers
Choose an Economy (Coverage – approx: 30 sq in), Starter (Coverage – approx: 100 sq in) or Starter Plus (Coverage – approx: 200 sq in) Kit.
Note: For a bond to form between a PTFE Tech-Patch and any metal substrate, pipe or tank, the metal surface must be abraded to either a “polished surface” or, with steel, a “near white” surface. Anything less in surface preparation will, over time; result in bond failure.
For plastic gas (poly) tanks/containers
Choose an Economy Poly (Coverage – approx: 30 sq in) Kit, a Poly (Coverage – approx: 100 sq in) Kit or a Poly Plus (Coverage – approx: 100 sq in) Kit for repairing plastic (poly) gas tanks or containers. Our patented Polymer Bonding Process will allow you to repair these otherwise unrepairable items.
PTFE Plus patches
In situations when extra protection against abrasion is needed, use our PTFE Plus Tech-Patches. Examples of when Plus patches might be needed include when there is a strap holding a gas tank on or in a difficult operating environment. If you have any questions about Plus patches, please call 877 565 7225.

Working with polyurethane, we developed the Polymer Bonding Process (Process) for bonding polymers in November of 2016. Recognition of the value in being able to bond polymers was immediate. So was the skepticism. Would the bond last? What polymers does the Process work on? Does the Process work to bond polymers to other materials?
In the years since, we answered every question in the affirmative. With the Process you can bond any polymer to itself, to any other polymer and to almost any other substrate. As important fact is that bonds created by the Process are permanent. Everyone who has tried has had success in bonding polymers or fixing their broken plastic piece. Everyone! That is why we have not refunded a dime under our money back guarantee.
Fluorosilicone (FVMQ) has excellent resistance to standard fuels, but high octanes gasolines can impact fluorosilicone. In addition to being impervious to standard fuels, PTFE (Teflon) has excellent resistance to the additives, benzene, xylene, etc., that increase octane rating. For the PTFE patches, we developed a process that bonded Teflon tape to the fluorosilicone. The Process does a superb job of bonding the PTFE to HDPE (plastic) tanks. Almost the same core chemistry bonds the patches to metal gas tanks.
Note: We developed PTFE Tech-Patches for repairing gas tanks and they do a wonderful job. PTFE patches will also have a very high stress rating. We expect the psi to be exceed 240, so PTFE will be the patch of choice for large volume tanks. Stay tuned for the test results.
