     Don't forget gas tank sealer. Eastwood Co. has a kit (10165Z) for
     cleaning and sealing old steel gas tanks.
     Or I'm sure J.C. Whitney has something too.

Hello all,
A couple of weeks ago, I requested input on ways to seal FDM parts
to protect them against gas/petrol infiltration and melting. To
summarize the responses:
2 part epoxy/resin paint
Model airplane dope
CeRam-Kote 54 from CeRam Kote (
Fluorinated Polyurethane (FPU) Coating from 21st Century Coatings
And I have thought of another way that I plan on testing. Coat
the FDM part with SLA resin and cure it. Hey, it's worth a try.
Thanks for all the responses.
