View Full Version : Polysulfide deck caulk
03-05-2012, 05:26 PM
Does anyone have experience using both Detco polysulfide deck caulk AND Boatlife Life-caulk two part sealant type P?
I really want Detco but cannot find anyone locally (Connecticut) stocking it; I am reluctant to use Boatlife because I haven't heard anything good about it.
Any suggestions? Any other brands of polysulfide 2 part out there?

I'll be following this - we just had a massive amount of rain, and my black Sika-flex edge sealed large gable glass panels are getting small leaks at the bottom

In my busines, I have used both Boat Life, Detco and Weather Ban 300 by 3m. None of them have lasted any longer than the traditional product known as Jefferies Marine Glue.
In fact Jefferies can be expected to last thirty years or more. I have never gotten more than ten years out of a modern polysulfied before probelms begin to arrise

Consider Teak Decking Systems SIS 440.

LS, Have used the Detco as recently as 20 years ago, other than the huge mess of mixing and filling your own tubes, as well as all that extra labor, yields a reasonable product. But in recent times have been very happy with Teak Deck Systems, single part, always cures, usually ready to work the morning of the next day. Looks just like it should. The oldest deck I have with it in, is over 15 years old and going strong, hard to beat actually, lots of cases of the stuff installed, no failures...BT
