Rumors...


#1

Ive heard that Red RTV gasket maker is able to be played with in 1 hour, is this true?
I might have gotten some bad silicone because it’s fell out within 5 hours of play even after a whole 24 hours of agony. If this is true, Im going to get it for sure. If not, what is the fastest drying silicone?


#2

Did the red RTV masket fall out after 5 hours? If so, you might be applying it incorrectly.

If you apply correctly and let it cure for 24 hours (1 hour isn’t enough) no silicone should wear out after 5 hours.


#3

I wasnt using gasket maker, I was using a weir unidentifed silicone


#4

The “weird unidentified silicone” probably wasn’t made for high tempatures/friction. Go with red RTV.


#5

Red hi-temp gasket maker. IMO one of the best silicons.
Found in your local freddies automotive section.


#6

Gasket maker or flowable, Does gasket make require you to bust knuckles to break it in?
