Isoflex etc.

Post  steamlaser on Thu 12 May 2016, 12:58 am

I need to purchase some Isoflex to stick on my tyres and seal the water tank.
I looked at the local Screwfix site and they sell a single product. ( which for 2.5 L is quite expensive!).
However I am unclear if you have to buy a primer and also a main product? The local supplier seem to sell only one can ?

Also when you assemble the wheels, do you need to Loctite the rivet headed screws to the Strakes before doing up the nuts? If so, what grade of Loctite should be used? (I cannot seem to be able to buy any Loctite from local suppliers )
Many thanks

Hi,
They sell isoflex in b&q. You have to use isoflex primer. Also, you would be wise to use isiflex cleaner to tidy up the mess. If not petrol. This stuff is messy, believe me.
With regards to loctite, i cant remember if they sent me some with the kit.

B&q as stated above. Isoflex primer on both surfaces. Think until tacky dry. Then the main event. Paper overalls. Old tarp on floor. I found clean rubber gloves after each attach. Helps to keep the mess down.
After each wheel. Clean up the area for the next. Remember to hang the wheels upright until set. Cheepo brushes and throw after session. Isoflex has a shelf life after opening so plan ahead.

The loctite is for the, as I found, few rivets that are not tight and spin when nut winding.

I was told when I wanted Isoflex at B & Q that they were in the process of doing away with it, and didn't stock it anymore. I got mine on the internet from Wickes but you cannot buy it in their shop outlets. I tried Screwfix and they didn't stock it either. Rolling Eyes
