Silicone solution

Discussion in 'Skulls and Skeletons' started by Kurt27, Dec 2, 2010.

  1. I have been using "SEAL N PEEL" made by DAP. You can get it had home depot for like $4.00 a tube. I have used it on the last 10 deer that ive done and havent had one yet that didnt peel off in one whole chunk. So those of you that are having troubles, and dont want to use latex i think this could be it.

    It sounds like it's got the "peel" down, now how well does it "seal?"
     

  3. I found if you didnt let it dry for at least 24 hrs, you will be restaining burrs.

    Does this peel off on it's own easily or did you have to use a releasing agent? Sounds cheaper than the latex and maybe a bit faster if it will work with one coat.

    What department at home depot and does lowes carry it
     
  6. I just grab a hold of it down at the burrs and peel it off towards the top, no releasing agent needed. And it is in the section with all of the caulking and liquid nail. We do not have a Lowes in my town, but if they carry DAP silicones then they have it.

    Are you putting it on before or after degreasing?
     
  8. I do it after degreasing. Ive never had degreasing hurt the antlers that i needed to use silicone. Im only putting the silicone up the anlers about 3 inches, enough to completely immerse into BO.

    May be a stupid question, but do you squirt it on with calk gun or do you apply with your finger. Never done this before, but picked up my seal n peal today gonna give it a try.
