I did a little searching but did not find what I was looking for.

What do the manufacturers use to seal off the outer most edges of compartment doors etc. I have used white and clear silicone in the past but dust always collects on it. The manufacturer sealing compound does not seem to attract dust like silicone does.

Any insight is greatly appreciated
