    Default window seal`s perpex

    looking for some channel rubber seal`s to reseal my windows instead of a lot of siicone
    they are aluminum frames with 6mm perspex in a 10mm x 12mm channel
    any idea`s as all ive seen are not right and not cheap either so im on help in locating or suggestion`s if rubber is not the best and alternative is better they are small and big

    I used butyl tape. Comes on a roll for sealing Windows. Cheap, and effective

    Dont use silicone. Sikaflex 295UV is the stuff to use for acrylic glazing if you are going to use a "mastic". It wont affect the glazing and it is UV resistant

    For rubber channels see Seals+Direct https://www.sealsdirect.co.uk/index.asp

    and/or HadlowMarine http://hadlowmarine.com/Pages/Seals%20indiarubber.html

    After many attempts to get waterproof windows, I finally cut the channel off the frame, turning the h shape into an l, and fitted oversized panes on butyl tape, using the frame purely as a trim. Result - a dry boat for the first time in years

    Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.

    is a sticky nightmare so be careful
    Have also used Sikaflex as above and very good to

    Butyl tape is great for sealing all deck gear too. It remains flexible, and can be reused if needs be.

    Butyl seals very well: that's what it's for. Hard to imagine the need for Sikaflex as well, or even how it might be employed.
