Sealant

I read (not sure where ... old age) that the factory standard in sealer is now Adseal Premium.
Anyone use same - during our current stay home period I am going to check the roof etc and do some resealing.

Adseal isn’t what the factory is using.

I prefer Alpha-One 1021 for the roof and Sikaflex221 “gray” for the rest.

Welcome Aboard...👍

I'm just a jaded GOF, but after 35yrs of Streaming I tend to suspect the OEM choices for various products used.

I have used...👍
I currently use 4200 for most sealing and 5200 for permanent applications.

I don’t recall where I read or heard same ... I did look at the AS online store and they have an AS seal/caulk kit that has AdSeal and it’s labeled for two colors along with two other sealants.
Not saying your wrong as they offer the other common sealants as well.
Changing times?

The 4200 is the 'quick' cure, but give it at least 24hr to set before working around it.
For smooth surface bonding course sand the surfaces.
For sealing, clean well and let cure completely.
