Seems okay on Hypalon.

But metal ! Think I'll avoid using it on metal anymore.

Blimey there is a lot of things on that list that have a severe effect on Hypalon inc petrol , I guess you need to avoid mooring in poluted harbours for long periods .

True, but it states that it is over a 48 hour exposure period, so a short term exposure of fuel probably isn't an issue.

I love the fact that they tested hypalons expsoure to 'rum'

I think there's some double-talking yankee bollocks going on there.

Gasoline (high-aromatic) B-Good
Gasoline, leaded, ref. B-Good
Gasoline, unleaded A-Excellent


Petroleum D-Severe Effect

Could be. But I think we put unleaded Gasoline in our tanks. I think Petroleum is not the same stuff. Outboard fuel has never caused any noticeable damage to any of my hypalon boats, and I've spilled a fair amount of it.

Perhaps it will do now I've 'read' that list.

Hi,be carefull with TFR as many contain caustic soda.This can leave a white deposit on surfaces and can discolour stainless steel fittings.Afew years back Iwas a distributor for a company called Autosmart,they have an awesome cleaning product called G101.Approx £10.00 for 5 litres,dilute 20 to one with water,cleans anything.Call 01543 481616.Ask for your local distributor and they come to you in a mobile showroom.Please note I am no longer connected with Autosmart,just trying to help.

Dek.
