Never had a problem, it certainly out lasts the actual lens.

First I would say that I struggled with the cost of this stuff. You can buy exterior caulk that is UV resistant at the local box store for about 1/3 the price. I actually did get some and did some testing in order to compare before I ordered more since I didn't order enough to start with. I used this caulk as a deck seam compound. My deck is made of western red cedar, not teak but has the same sort of look. The Sika is a superior product to anything else that I tried. I tested some DAP and 3 M. Both the DAP and 3 M cured faster but seemed to shrink down in the seams whereby in comparison, the Sikaflex took a bit longer to cure, gave off more of an odor but then maintained it's fullness in the seam.

I agree with the others as to the messiness of the product...especially if you aren't careful with it, or fail to tape and mask your work areas. Other than that...It does the job extremely well, and it was easy to use. I have re-bedded the windows on our trawler and they turned out great. I like the fact that after 6 months in the Florida sun much of it summer and full exposure to the sun...there has been zero fade, bleeding of color, peeling, or separation. I am very pleased with this product and the way it turned out!!

I replaced my screwed in acrylic windows with Makrolon (Lexan with abrasion resistant coating) and used the Sikaflex 226 cleaner, 209 primer and 295 UV adhesive and the results were unbelievable! I did not have to use the screws again making it an even cleaner install. Only advice I can give is tape it off well so when you remove the tape and paper your left with a nice trim line around the windows. This product works very well!!

Installed 16 acrylic windows in my homebuilt boat with this stuff, following instructions for sanding edge of acrylic, and priming. Tools easily into a smooth bead. Most of the work is in the prep for this use. Boat has been in the weather for 5 years now without any problems with window seal or adhesion.

I used this product along with Sika Cleaner 226 and Sika Primer 209 to bond four acrylic/plexiglass windows. The results look very solid. It is messy, so don't skimp on the masking tape. Here's a link to the instructions that I used: [@]. You'll want to print these as the directions on this three step process are not detailed on any of the containers.

Product was great but Jamestown Distributors failed to send me the screw on dispensing tubes (as pictured) the last couple of times I ordered this product from them. This is a problem because no one around me sells just the screw on tubes for this or similar products.

Expensive, messy. Watch vises on utube first. Use thin gloves, lots of thinner and plenty of tape to pull off excess

I used the product to repair some swimming pool slate that kept falling off. The product was used to seal the top of the slate to the wall of the pool.
