This is the first silicone I used, I have since moved on to rtv gasket maker.
Smell: The smell is nauseating…It kind of reminds me of the time laundry softener spilled in my car, you could pass out on a long drive. If you take to long siliconing, then you sir, shall have an unconditional nap…
look: It’s clear, thats it, pretty hard to see.
Texture/on a pour:I don’t know how to describe the texture of this silicone. It’s…different. Silicone is either regular or flowable. This silicone is liquid yet solid at the same time. This makes pouring the silicone a complicated process. Some times you get liquid, sometimes you get solid silicone, sometimes the silicone jams. After spreading, the liquidy nature makes the silicone go everywhere. The silicone is incredibly easy to pierce. When cleaning, the stuff doesn’t want to come out. After 5 cleanings, I still have a small small portion of silicone in my bearing seat.
Drying time: The silicone will solidify in a few hours but takes 24 hours to cure, and even then, you might want to keep it a few days longer, you’ll see why.
Durability: No…just…no… This stuff wasn’t meant for high friction. The first time I used the silicone, I waited 3 hours the silicone fell out (well, most silicone will do the same). The next time, 18 hours, It fell out within 10 minutes. 19 hours, oh my god! this silicone is finally working. I carry my freshly siliconed legacy with me everywhere the whole day. When I get home from my festivity, I throw a sleeper and when I bind, It slips. “hmm, thats odd…” I open up the yoyo, and what do you think I see? The silicone fell out…T_T… 20-23 hours…it fell out. Finally, I tried 24 hours. IT WORKED! I was so happy the silicone didn’t fall out, I carried it with me everywhere again. I carried it to the beach to give my legacy a fresh satin job, when I got home, what do you know…IT FELL OUT!
Overall: If you are a carpenter, DITTO. If you are trying to take a nap DITTO. If you are trying to silicone a yoyo NONO!
