    Let me know when you find it, in doing a search I am having a hard time. I would love to use this as an alternative to spray and I ordered a bunch of that camo 1.1 uncoated from scittlefield and would like to find a way to treat it that is more environmentally responsible.

    as well, are there any restrictions temp-wise when it come to this concoction working? I've got a tarp that needs seam-sealing, and I think the highs for the next few days fluxuate only between about 40- 50*. Any restrictions on that? Thanks

    I looked at the brochure for Aquaseal... If you look at their other products, they specifically say "Water cleanup" but aquaseal does not... hmmm....

    Do you have a tube of this to read the directions?

    I used some on site about 2 years ago, but as it was in a customers premises, i didnt mess with it and binned the tube. Havent used it since either.
    The parent company for elch pro is Henkel. Just did a search and found out its called OSI Pro in the US. They also own loctite and some other major brands. I would have thought these would be good people to speak to about it. I will keep looking for you.

    Ready to try this out.

    It is raining here is Atlanta so I may not get to the test today, but I have the stuff I need. I bought one tube of the clear Silicone and a can (iqt. I think) of Mineral Spirits.

    I have an orange Home Depot bucket with a lid that i plan on using.

    I will start with about 1/2 of the tube and start mixing the Mineral Spirits until i like the consistence of a liquid that I like.

    I plan on soaking it for about .... maybe .... 30 minutes.

    then i will hang the tarp, drip dry it and wipe off any remainder liquid and let it try for a day or so in my garage (depending on the weather)

    I would love some recommendations on the soaking time.
    I plan on mixing enough to make it a nice liquidy mix... not too thin and not too thick.

    sounds like an ok plan.

    i'd consider wringing out any excess as soon as you pull it out of the bucket, pitch it or hang it and start wiping off the excess immediatly. after it dries you won't get any excess off, it will all be stuck on there for good

    I'll be interested if you have enough spirits and silicon. I watched Franksb??? video from post 154 and he indicated the need for more liquid than I, at first, thought.
    Good vid I thought.Informative

    Good luck with the silnyling
