Re: Tank repair

Huh?...Don't you have it backwards?

Adhesives are made of silicone (which contains a form of silicon).  So I would
expect it is silicone that helps tank repair.

Computer chips are made from silicon.  Large breasts are made from silicone.
I know how to get to Silicon Valley.  Does anyone know the way to Silicone

 A very minor point... I believe you mean silicon.  Unless I've go it
 confused (which is far from impossible. :), silicone is the stuff computer
 chips and such are made of.  Silicon is the stuff that glue is made of.
 It provides a VERY strong bond.  Silicon is often used to hold patchings
 on to boats and so forth.  This is basically the same stuff as nay other
 ilicon gle, excep tht at its liikely to contain toxic mold inhibitors.
