Use of Sealants

Use neutral cure silicone rubber sealants which offer the following:

  • Good adhesion to the clean surface of roof sheeting.
  • Water resistance and are non-corrosive to the sheeting.
  • Resistance to extremes of heat and cold while retaining good flexibility.
  • Provide high resistance to ultra-violet rays (sunlight) and have a long service life.

Mineral turpentine is suitable for cleaning only the surfaces to be adhered and remove all residual solvent with a dry cloth.  While spirits such as Shell X-55 can also be used to clean the surfaces to be sealed.
