Parbond Illegal in California...

I tried to order some tubes of Parbond to try and stop some leaks on my trailer.

I placed the order online from egutter.com last week. They called today and said it is illegal to ship the product to Calfornia

So... what are Californians using to seal their trailers?...

Are you sure they aren't confused? After all, I got mine from InlandRV in CA, and he obviously had it shipped to him.

I just talked to them (egutter.com) on the phone. They said it would be illegal to ship it to California.

I suppose I could have it shipped outside of CA and sent in via a family member.

If you notice on inlandrv.com they do not specifically reference parbond.

They call it

Sealer, Aluminum 5 oz. for seams, rivets, etc

and have NO PIC under the picture column.

Here is the link to the egutter.com page that sells it.

12/13/04 13:10 Edited to clarify who I talked to.

Well, I guess you just need to find someone in CA that sells Sealer, Aluminum, you know - for seams, rivets, etc.

Funny that Airstream Dreams also doesn't have a problem with it, but egutters does. You Californians! Always got some crazy enviromental law getting in your way (actually we're probably being exposed to some horrible cancer causing substance in the Parbond, but what can you do?).

Yep... But that's the kinda of stuff that usually works!

I checked airstreamdreams.com and they show out of stock.

So, unless someone else pops up here I'll checkout hilltoprv.com, thanks for the tip Ed.

Safari Tim.

Our part # 51600 is Par Bond.

We order it and it is shipped to us. We in turn ship it to you.

You indicate that "we" said it's illegal to ship that in California. I have questioned all of our telephone people, and none of them remember talking to you, let alone making such a comment.

To set the record straight, we have the Par-bond, and we ship it anyplace, anytime.

We have never heard fromk "anyone" that shipping Par-bond is illegal.

Further, since we have a legitimate business location in Corona, we always have 50 to 100 tubes of Par-bond, in stock.

Andy

Re-read the thread, he was referring to egutter.com.

I don't think anyone took it to mean InlandRV said it was illegal to ship it, after all, I got mine from Andy too.

Thanks for the idea. I checked the airstream website and it shows the Acrylic R as being the official seam sealer from Airstream.

Makes me wonder my most of the talk is using parbond for seams instead of this product.

The picture shows just holding the applicator to the seam and pulling the trigger. Is it really that easy? No masking the area with tape or anything? How far does one can go?

I have a couple of vertical seams I want to seal first to see if thats the cause of my current leak.

It probably is the current sealer used by Airstream whereas the Par-Bond/Vulkem is older technology, which was used on vintage units.

We've used the Vulkem & Par-Bond and had great success...no leaks since we painstakingly removed all the silicone that the previous owner had gooped all over! We didn't remove the old 'non-silicone' sealer, (assuming it was a combination of Par-Bond & Vulkem) so we wanted to stick with the old 'tried & true' not sure of the adhesion of the newer Acrylic R to the old sealer that was still intact.

Its so easy

Well easy application depends on how much skill you have running the applicator. I was able to do my seems without tape after a few trial runs using tape. Does that make sense??

Anyway just sqeeze the trigger as you move and ya should do ok. This looks like it doesn't go into the seam at first but let it suck in and dry and it looks great. Make sure you do it on a warm day when the joint is open the most. It stays permanatly soft and flexable and its very sticky.

Also this can goes along way............. You probably won't use half of it and it only keeps for 12 months in a cool environment. Smells real good too If you have a freind or somone at a rally who needs it spread the wealth.

It is $$$$$ so maybe thats why an inexpensive tube of parbond works well for small jobs. Have fun and don't get it on your clothes
