sealant for vista view redo

Hello All.

I'm into the VV's now. Smashed out the inner pane. Cleaned out all the gunk. The outer pane is clean and moving free in the frame. I have the spacer from Can Am RV. All ready to go. My question is this....should I set the glass in silicone (which I know to many people is a crime), or should I use Vulkem? Any ideas? Thanks for listening.

Warren

Use Sikoflex" which is a smooth Vulkem sealer.

Never use silicone sealers that can be exposed to the sun.

Thanks Andy for the advice.

I am in Canada and can't seem to find Sikoflex. I do have some actual Vulkem that I bought from you. Is that too gritty?
