Sealant Around Windows?

Hi All,

I'm picking away at little things before winterizing and covering the AS. Just bought some Parbond and Trempro to seal seams and windows. Which do you recommend I use once I scrape away the existing sealant around Front and read windows. I'll upload a pic. later today.

Thanks
Mike

Term pro, tape off around the place you want the bead, about 1/8" on either side, them you can really work the trempro in with your finger some, peel tape when done makes cleanup much easier.
On the front windows make sure to seal the top of the chanel's that join the center to wing windows if you've got them.

Parabond works for me. I don't mask. I run a thin bead and then use a piece of t shirt with minerals spirits on it to push thr Parabond in the crack. This way seals the corner and wipes off excess cleanly.

Both of them will last a yr or two in direct sun, sometimes less in really hot areas. I have yet to experiment with other sealants. I am thinking of using LEXEL which is very UV resistant. It stays really soft though. There are some here who use Siklaflex which is similar to Trempro. Silicone is out and does not seem to stay stuck. I would use Parbond around the window frames and it is easy to put a second coat on later on if the surface is clean and not flaking off. Usually Trempro is used to seal larger fillet areas where there are large gaps.

Are you all referring to the seal around the actual glass once removed from aluminum framing. I am wondering if this is something you buy or everyone is removing old rubber around glass and simply caulking

Hi Hopmonster, I used Sitkaflex 221 Grey. Your trempro will work just fine. Just make sure it is grey so its not an eyesore to you later. One tip I can give you for working with those big full sized caulking tubes is...Don't! You will end up with a monster ugly bead that spreads goop everywhere. Go to your neighborhood pharmacy and get some measured medicine dispensers like this

Take some sandpaper and sand a beveled edge all around the dispensing edge, dust it off and squish your caulking of choice into the nice small easy to use dispenser. If you get any wayward Trempro or Sitka flex use a citrus based adhesive remover or even camp stove fuel to wipe it off before it sets

Hi Paul, Welcome to the forums Monsters question is different from what you are inquiring about. I don't want to come off as impolite but I just wanted to point out that your requesting info on an issue different than the original posters (OP's) question is called hijacking. Please ask your question by starting a new thread and a whole bunch of us, including me will be there to help you :-)

monster,
Try this thread http://www.airforums.com/forums/f44/...ry-116214.html It is by far the best one on sealants and there applications.
