Just how hard does that ACRYL get, is it pliable at all when cured?

Kinda like hot glue...only more flexible and adheres better?????? Best I can describe.
I wonder about getting some rubber sheet material and using the foam gasket as a template (cut just a hair larger than the foam) and sealing the screw.....? I have some left over rubber roof material from my old SOB re-roof job.

Did try a 1/8" thick foam sheet, to porous i guess.

Next..an old inner tube.(remember them?)

I was thinking of adding the ACRYL to the tool kit, but if it has a short shelf life and has limited applications maybe I'll hold off and see how the tube works.

I was going to cut out all the gaskets....but might as well see if this one does the trick. Just put it in and it's raining now so should know soon.


Hi-jack done now.

I just made 13 of the gaskets out of the old EPDM roof material and got little o-rings for the screws. But it's not forecast to rain this week. We'll see.

I used Sikaflex on the top edges and side of the rear LED clearance lights that replaced the old bullseye lights. I did this about 4 or 5 years ago and that stuff is still pliable. I also used it, along with 3M tape, to cover the tilt mounts when I place solar panels on my Sovereign 4 years ago. It is still pliable. I have not had good experience with Parrbond because it looked like it was cracking two years after I put it on my aluminum rub rails.

I have a can of Acryl-R and plan to seal panels toward the end of summer so I can't say how well it would work
