Tank sealant ratio needed
I need to mix up a very small amount of PPG B2
My container does not have the ratio of part A to Part B
Anyone out there know what it is?

P/S 890 Class B is an aircraft integral fuel tank sealant. It has a service temperature range from - 65F (-54C) to 250F (121C), with intermittent excursions up to 275F (135C). This material is designed for fillet sealing of fuel tanks and other air- craft fuselage sealing applications. The cured sealant maintains excellent elastomeric properties after pro- longed exposure to both jet fuel and aviation gas.
P/S 890 Class B is a two-part, manganese dioxide cured polysulfide compound. The uncured material is a low sag, thixotropic paste suitable for application by extrusion gun or spatula. It cures at room tempera- ture to form a resilient sealant having excellent adhe- sion to common aircraft substrates.
The following tests are in accordance with AMS-S- 8802 Class B specification test methods.

By weight
Don't overlook that the 10-to-1 is by weight.

Use a digital postal scale set to grams

Or an 11 unit long balance beam with the pivot at unit 1.
