Title: plastic tank heat shield adhesive
Post by: Ronkom on May 16, 2019, 02:02:52 PM
What do y'all use? My new toy V11sport is by far the worst of the few I've worked on. The others just took some strips of "racer tape" (super adhesive stainless steel tape) around the edges. When I took the tank off the Sport the whole thing was loose & hanging from the bottom of the tank. For those unfamiliar, the underside of the plastic tanks  is covered with a thin fiberglass/aluminum foil insulating material. It's cut to fit in the tank saddle & sides & glued to the plastic. So the adhesive has to adhere to fiberglass & plastic, be heat resistant and able to stand up to the possible gas slop from inattentive filling and oil etc fumes from the motor.
suggestions?

 I've used 3M #77 spray adhesive with no failure in 5 years and counting. Can sez it's good for 150 degrees F.

When the stock crap failed on my '08 Norge I got some aluminum heat shield material at O'Reilly's auto parts,self adhesive,conformed to the bottom of the tank nicely! The hardest part was getting the old foam/adhesive off...
