Silicone Adhesive Alternatives
By Richard Schneider

Dear List:  Although this is a late contribution to this thread regard-
ing silicone, I have discovered a much better alternative to "bathtub
caulk", which exhibits better adhesive bonding properties, doesn't have
the awful vinegar smell (actually, it smells like cherries when it's
curing!), and can be obtained in several ready-made viscosities in
small tubes, construction tubes and even quart cans, if the viscosity
is light enough to warrant.  It can also be obtained in several
different colors besides clear.

I have whole access to this material and am willing to re-sell to the
trade at reasonable prices.  However, since I will be gone from this
Thursday until after the New Year on an extended trip, I would ask that
anyone inquiring please defer doing so until after New Years, as I
won't have time to respond prior to then.

Hope this point of information is of general benefit to this list.

Since I doubt I'll be posting again prior to Christmas, I'd like to
take this opportunity to wish everyone on the List a great Christmas
holiday and New Year!

 [ Well, you've raised my curiosity but have given no concrete
 [ data, Richard!  Please tell us more after the holidays, especially
 [ about the solvent or base chemical used.  What is the chemical
 [ which smells like cherries?  Are these fumes compatible with
 [ surface finishes and other adhesives?  -- Robbie
