Hello all, I have a question. What silicone/caulking can I use that will not retain dirt?
I have been using life caulk, 3M uv sealent, 4200, 5200, 101 etc. I am trying to run a bead around a capstan base and my flybridge dodger. The problem is that they keep attracting dirt and I have to clean it with adhesive remover to make it look new all the time. I have used products in the past that do not get as dirty but cannot find it. Thanks in advance. Chris
Sorry to hear of your caulking/silicone problem. 3M products are mostly designed for indoor use and not for weatherproof outdoor use. I would suggest contacting Dow Corning, a manufacturer of various industrial sealants, via their website www.dowcorningsealants.com and sending them your enquiry.
I trust that has been of some help to you.
