Sikaflex? grey? where to buy?

Hi there,

Looking to buy a few tubes of sikaflex 291 / 292 (i presume) and want it in a light grey colour to suit my searider.

Any advice as to where to buy and how much it would cost?

I need it for the weekend.

Also, I need to touch up the light grey paint on my grp searider hull.

What to use and where to buy?

Need help soon!

Grey Sikkaflex

Believe it or not you can 'mix' black and white sikkaflex to make the shade of grey you require.

Here, 221 though. I need some to seal a wetroom that we're lining out in flat sheet galvanised steel.

You can get it at pretty well any chandlery (or a boatbuilder if there's any near you)

291 is sealant, 292 is adhesive. They are polyurethane based, so look for that if you want an alternative as there's also marine silicone based sealants around.

With Tony's suggestion at least you'll get the shade you want.

Also, do a search on here to find ways of keeping it fresh - the stuff goess off in the tube quickly.

I've found its only the stuff in the nozzle that goes off. So its not worth chucking what appears to be a solid tube when a little bit of perseverance will get you some good stuff.

At £11 a go its quite expensive for a small job. Although it is very good at what it does.

I agree totally. I have a tube that I have used on numerous occasions. You just have to unscrew the nozzle and get the gunk out. I use an old Allen key of a close size to the hole in the end.
