Geocel Pro Flex sealant?

Anyone know if this is safe to use on a fiberglass roof? I used dicor on previous RV but they offer this in black and there are a couple places I want to add sealant where it borders black painted trim that wraps around edge to the roof.

Thanks

Yes, I use it on my vertical sidewall moldings. Also removes relatively easily.

Pro Flex is good stuff. I have used the clear and white over the years on my RV's and it holds up well.

Ok great! I will order a tube of the black.

Looks like when it was built they used white dicor and painted it black and the paint is flaking off. Figured when I touch it up that it would be much easier if there was a suitable black fiberglass roof caulk.

The best rv caulk I have ever used. I can't wait to get a MH with a fiberglass roof so I can seal my roof with it.

This is what I use, works great. Takes 24 to 36hrs to dry and it's clear.

Never used this but looks like it would be a good thing for roof stuff. Do you use it in place of Dicor self-leveling sealant?


Also, once you open the can and use some of it, does the left over sealant harden? I've found with the tubes of Proflex, even if you cap the tip and seal it well with tape, the remaining sealant in the tube cures and hardens quickly so you cannot use it again.

Excellent stuff and available in several colors. I use it on my coach.

However, not recommended for EPDM rubber.

Works better than the self-leveling stuff, use that on my Alpenlite 5er in time it cracks. Just like paint seal the can all good. I put it on when the outside temp was around 80degs and it is still thick but drys like glass.
I had a real bad bedroom slide leak on the seams where the box is put together. Got a roll of the blue tape used in painting, trimmed it out so the edges would be straight then brushed this on works great on the sides, then used a 2" roller to go under the topper with a broom handle screwed into it.
You can also get it at Ace Hardware for a few dollars more.

OK, thanks for the tips. While the black Sikaflex sealant on my slides looked good, I put Eternabond tape over the seams on the two bedroom slides when I replaced my topper fabric. I had the guys at CC replace the bigger slide toppers and asked them to inspect the sealant and they said it was good. However, I will keep this stuff in mind for the other two slide rooms.
