Plastic is not user friendly aka you have to use the poly rod on poly and the abs on abs and so on. You cant mix and match. Ive got over 25 yrs in plastic injection molding and have about seen it all. It just doesnt mix. Good Luck Lester

So is the PP (polypropolene) what that sprayer tank is made of do you think? I'm no expert in this stuff by ANY means.

Most sprayer tanks are polypropylene. The only alternative I know is glass fibre reinforced polyester, which is discernable by its textured surface.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Google "identifying plastic for plastic welding" and you will get a ton of websites that will show you how to figure out what your tank is made of. Its impossable for us to ID it without being in front of it. You could try to contact the company that made the tank but things could have changed and they are now using something different, and thats IF they can/will tell you.

The ABS plastic is unlikely to do anything except contaminate your repair, if its removable you may want to take it off right now before it messes things up.
