Question

Is this as good as 5200 fir below the water line thru hull's?

Asked on 08/07/2016 by Robert Diotte

Top Answer

5200 setup up hard. This sealer stays flexable when cured. Haven't had any problems above the water line. Have used it below water line and it didn't seem to affect it one way or the other. Think' silicon sealer a little more flexable'. Be used it for everything.

Answer

AS far as I know, the total boat seal is holding up. I applied 5 tubes on my deck replacement. I certainly hope it is as good as 3m 5200.

Answered on 08/08/2016 by bob hodges

Answer

No I would still use 5200 below the waterline. I like the Total Boat sealant for hatch mounting and general caulking outside as it doesn't yellow like 5200 and is much easier to work with and remove parts when needed. Brett S/V Seismic Wave

Question

Hello - Can this product be used as a light adhesive? I'm mounting some gear hammocks inside my boat and want something that has adhesive properties, but can be removed later, if I decide to move things around. Thanks in advance!

Top Answer

Hi Michelle, I think this product would work, it's pretty tenacious after it dries. A word of warning it can be messy, I would tape around the area and be diligent. Read the label it takes a day or so for complete cure. I would take a couple of those little silicone bumpers (like for the back of cabinet doors)cut them if you need to make them smaller and put them between the parts that you are gluing at act as space to make sure you have enough caulk between the parts. it keeps the caulk from squishing out... Good luck,

Answer

This is for gluing plastics and such - there are better stuff - like 4200 - not the 5200 too strong.

Answer

Very versatile product. I have not used it for that purpose. Seems like you might have a problem with clamping until setup.

Question

anyone use this product to seal starboard? Does it work?All the literature I saw about starboard is that no common adhesives stick to it.

Asked on 03/18/2015 by Bob Lukowski

Top Answer

I used this product to attach neoprene rubber to the bottom of my new Moeller fuel tanks. I hear that not much will make a bond with starboard.

Answer

Thanks Dennis, I asked the question because the description says it adheres to starboard. I guess that's not accurate.

Answered on 03/18/2015 by Bob Lukowski

Answer

Yes I have used if to seal starboard - it will stick only as a sealant not as an adhesive. And it can make a compression seal between two pieces screwed together. I also use dolphonite to install starboard as a backing plate for mefal hardware. I use the nonskid starboard to make backing plates. Use 1/2" starboard with the nonskid facing the surface which gives the sealant or the dolphonite a place to reside between the surfaces when the antenna mount of horn or whatever is tightened down. I only use the sealant on fiberglass boats or on Triumph extruded plastic type boats and dolphonite on wood painted boats. Dolphonite won't rip the painted surface if the hardware and starboard plate are removed someday.

Question

what is the prep for using as a seal on fiberglass. There is old caulk in the joint. After I dig it out will Acetone be a good choice?

Asked on 04/14/2015 by Susan Young

Top Answer

Use a scrapper or knive blade to remove the old caulk. Any number of solvents may work to remove caulk residue. Can't say for sure not know the typed of caulk.

Answer Question

Question

What type of sealant is this? Polyurathane, polysulfide, Polyether, silicone, something else? It should specify in the product description since no product is appropriate for all situations or all substrates.

Asked on 03/29/2015 by Greg Hall

Top Answer

Elastomer refers to the group of rubber like polymers. Polysulfide is an elastomer but all elastomers are not polysulfides. Look for the registered trade name Thiokol.

Will it stand to direct sunlight in Florida without degradation or going to liquid state.

Top Answer

Yes, TotalBoat Seal is highly UV stable and can be sanded and painted when fully cured. It is not recommended for application on wooden deck seams and should not be used in areas where it may come into contact with gasoline. https://www.totalboat.com/product/seal/

Question

i will be replacing my winshield on my boat with lexan windows in wood frames with a wood bead at the outside perimiter. I would like to use this product as bedding/sealant material. I know that at some point I will have to remove the excess sealant from the lexan. Is this product compatible with lexan? What and how should I remove the excess w/o hurting the lexan? Thank you in advance.

Asked on 04/04/2020 by Harry from North Kingstown, Rhode Island

Top Answer

You can't use solvents on lexan so your best bet would be to mask the edges.
