What sealant for spinnaker? on 03/11/2008 23:56:48 MDT Print View

Hi, I just got my Gossamer Gear 'The One' in the post yesterday. :D

I have a question about sealing it though. Should I use a silicon based sealant on it (i.e. silnet) or would a urathane one do the job?

All the places around here (Nagano, Japan) only seem to be selling urathane sealants...

Thanks for your and advice!

Another option is the hardware store sells 100% silicone sealer and then you dilute it with mineral spirits paint thinner.
