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.
