Slipicone?

Setting up a PM schedule for our new 08 27 FB. The manual (A/S portion) calls for "Slipicone" to coat door and window seals every 6 mo/10,000 miles. It appears to be a Dow product but not available in the US. A quick search of the forums turns up no mention of "Slipicone". Our local autoparts store knows nothing of it.

Anybody using a replacement product or an idea where this can be found?

Thanks for any info.

Slipicone is the same thing as silicone.

Just a play on names.

Coat all the exterior gaskets every 6 months, the entrance door, the access doors and the opening windows.

Just to clarify, it is silicone lubricant, not silicone adhesive. One makes it move, one makes it stop moving.

hi 'sag...

i love it went owners TRY to follow what in the "owners manual"...

it gives us the chance to find out if what they provide us (support documents) really work.

i've referenced this product in past posts here...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/191743-post244.html

http://www.airforums.com/forums/220247-post2.html

but as i recall the spelling was slip1cone...

or at least that's how i read it, and it looks like NEITHER spelling is in use now.

anyway what IS used NOW at the factory, is a dow product and IS available here in the usa.

i've purchased it at the factory store, not sure if it's listed online at the a/s site.

it does appear to be available on line from vendors, here are 2...

http://www.laddresearch.com/General_...ubricants.html

http://www.ellsworth.com/display/pro...ctid=323&Tab=P

and their prices are inline with buying a can from j/c.

it may be true that lots of sili' products will work fine...

THIS product is "food grade" silicone which means it is safe to use around kitchen stuff...

like fridge gaskets and kitchen windows and kitchen slides and so on...

here are pix of the can IF you wanna read from the label.

at the very least select a product that is safe around rubber and plastics...

some sili' sprays are, and some sili' sprays are NOT...

cheers
2air'

just CLICK on the pic in a new window and ZOOM some....

Ah, Ah & Ah. Thanks Andy, Terry & 2air - they're just checking to see if we're really reading the manual. It's a real struggle learning to be a handy man at my age : > )

Just an FYI: I have been wiping 303 Protectant on my window and door seals and find that it works just fine. Usually just once a year, but if there has been lots of rain, then I re-apply. I have been treating the rubber seals on my vehicles with 303 longer than I care to remember and never experienced any drying out or sticking issues.
