Dicor equivalent in a spray can?

Was doing some sealing of vents etc with Dicor today and thinking it would be more convenient to have a spray version for touch ups. I've thought about using something like Flex-Seal, but decided against it because I wasn't sure how it would stand up to UV.

Is there such a product?

Caulking in self leveling and non-leveling
Sealant tape
Roof coatings

any thing in a spray can is bad.. flexseal in a spray does not work or last.

the propellant degrades the product , it also can make a chill effect of substrate causing adhesion issues later//

Some "charged" chaulking products are ok.. push the tip chaulk flows

You mean Flexseal doesn't last? I just sprayed my entire canoe that I made out of window screen material.

I'd better wear a life jacket.

Most Flex-Seal products label says it contains petroleum distillates. A few years ago i bought a pint of Flex-Seal brush on white sealer to use on the MH roof; until I read the entire label, which I should have done prior to purchase.
Rusteolum makes a spray-on waterproof sealer, BUT it is not UV resistant, turned yellow and began curling in one summer.

Better than Dicor is Geocell. I like it alot. Also available in no sag and self leveling. Skins over quick, you mask and run 8 or 10 inches max, smooth and keep going. get the tape off fast, as soon as it skins. Looks much nicer and glossier than Dicor. I have used both.

Use Eternabond tape. Better than all of the above.
And no to spray. That would be a mess even if it worked. Undercoat is as close as comes to mind.

Eternabond has it's place, but I'm not in favor of using it everywhere. Great for the seams at front and rear caps though.
