The reference was for slosh compound from KBS Coatings. Based on that recommendation, I am using it in the glass tanks in my SuperCub Clone. We'll see how it does. My KR has the Bill Hirsch compound in it. Still good after 22 years and 1200+ hours with no flaking or peeling.
I had a discussion this weekend with an RV builder that had sloshed his tanks just prior to the RV "Service Bulletin" reversing their recommendation and saying not to slosh the tanks. He said that after 10 years use, he removed the tanks and went in and scraped all the slosh compound out of the tanks. Per his experience, he said it stuck really well at the seams where it had something to bite into, but peeled quite easily where it was covering slick smooth surfaced, i.e. flat aluminum. I would conclude that if your tanks have some texture to them, the compound is likely to stick much better. Additionally, acid etching opens the surface a bit and will help the slosh compound to stick better, including in fiberglass tanks. That is per the recommendation from KBS Coatings.
