Re: Best Rivet Sealant?

Hi: All... You can throw away your One A Day+ Irony as there are still app's. of rivets on Escapes. I broke the brittle plastic sewer cap on our '07 5.0s roof. What a duce of a job to get the old one off. The sealant used really stuck so it came off in pieces and the rivets were a larger size than normal hardware store ones. The irony is small cap... big job. I put on a liberal coating of 303 UV. protector so I hope the plastic lasts longer. Alf

Re: Best Rivet Sealant?

The next project on the agenda is to paint all the vulnerable plastic with this:

http://www.krylon.com/products/fusion_for_plastic/

to protect it from UV. It won't prevent me from breaking stuff, just keep it from getting brittle enough to encourage it.

Do you think that stuff would work on my wife's VISA card? It's looking awfully brittle of late!

Regards,

Matt

Re: Best Rivet Sealant?

Roger,

Can you expand? Why butyl over silicon? And for which applications?

Re: Best Rivet Sealant?

And why does this program flag Butyl as misspelled?

And I'm still waiting for an answer. I did buy some in the meantime.

Re: Best Rivet Sealant?

Thanks. No wonder I couldn't find the info by searching previous threads here. The thread was on the other site.

Of course, the thread didn't address my current problem. I have to see how successful I am at securing a carved elk horn 'belt buckle' to the hardware that actually keeps my pants up. I tried epoxy twice, but for some reason it would soften, with only body heat, and the horn/hardware would shift over time. Went to Rona and he sold me some Marine Silicone ( I got the Butyl at the same time ) and I've tried again.

I don't think butyl is the answer for this application.
