I see where sikaflex (not silkaflex) 221 gray is available from Amazon, but provided by Orange County Airstream.

When I was at the Airstream facility they had sikaflex 221. Some tubes are marked "black" while others had no designation. Is the sikaflex 221 default color gray?

No, you have to look at the plunger end to find the color on some tubes of SikaFlex.

Sikaflex 221

I google sikaflex and homedepot has this product listed. Is this the same sikaflex 221 that everyone has been talking about?

Sikaflex 10 fl. oz. Crack Sealant-427706 - The Home Depot

NO! The only SikaFkex product discussed here as a sealant/adhesive is 221. Any other Sika product is not the same and has different properties.

I suspect one or both of my door hinges may be leaking. What do I use to seal? I have Adseal gray and Acryl-R. Do I need the remove one hinge at a time to perform this job or do I just need to remove the mounting scores one at a time and coat with Adseal and screw back in? I guess I just peel off the silver trim cover to access the screws that mount the hinge?

Thanks

Kelvin

Kelvin, If you loosen those screws, you will be performing surgery on the interior skins to get to the nuts that hold the hinges on. I wouldn't even tempt myself to touch those screws. I would clean the hinge/skin joint very well, tape off a thin gap at the joint and use either Acryl-R or Parbond. I use parbond for this type of joint.

Do those screws ever need to be checked for tightness? Will the nuts inside turn or do they have lock washers?

Thanks

Kelvin

kind of skimmed the last page but today I was picking up some stuff and the vendor had Vulkem 116 but they also had a BASF product which they claimed was the same, so I picked up a tube to check out. Here's the link in case anyone else has tried it already.

Truckasurus, I used a high performance polyurethane sealant by BASF called Sonolastic NP1 around my wheel wells three years ago. So far it seems as durable as the original factory Vulkem/Sikaflex.

Cool. That's the same stuff (just rebranded I believe). Nice to find something local to me at last.

What is the proper cleaner before applying sikaflex? I KNOW it's not alcohol!
Thanks!
