PART#: Silaprene STARTING AT $14.75

Silaprene Adhesive is an easy-to-use, one-part adhesive/sealant. It bonds virtually all types of metals, including aluminum, as well as fiberglass, wood, glass, plastics, masonry and concrete, and provides a permanent bond. Silaprene Adhesive/Sealant bonds body panels, body seams, roofs, etc and can be used to fasten almost anything together. This one-part adhesive gets stronger with age and won’t get brittle or crack from vibration or thermal shock. It will withstand extreme temperatures and is unaffected by highway chemicals. Silaprene is widely used by body manufacturers and is one of the most common adhesives used to bond aluminum trailers and semi sleeper cabs. It comes in a 10.3 oz caulking tube and has a six month shelf life.

When used to bond two metal panels together, for example when attaching a slip-on rocker panel, we recommend removing all paint from both surfaces where the product will be applied in order to get a strong bond. Simply apply a bead of Silaprene around the perimeter of one panel, secure it to the second surface with clamps, rivets, screws, etc and allow to cure over night (curing time will vary depending on temperature and humidity). The product strength will increase over time, but it does stay pliable since it is also a sealer. If you plan to apply any type of body filler around the perimeter of the attached panel, make sure to remove any Silaprene that may have squeezed out during application as filler will not stick to this product.

  2. James, sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with Silaprene. We sell a ton of it, and have used it ourselves, and have never had an issue with it setting up. It does take some time to set up, which is why we recommend clamping and letting set overnight. Air temperature and humidity levels can also affect set time. I’m wondering if maybe you received a bad tube. Even though we haven’t run across this yet, it’s always a possibility. If you didn’t do so, you could have contacted us and we would have sent you another tube to try

    This stuff is terrible would not recommend !!! I have repaired many patch panels and this stuff doesn’t set up I had to apply heat to get it to set up after it being clamped for at least 8 hours. Go to API near you and get the 2 part epoxy sets quick and works great ! Silaprene should be discontinued.

    Great stuff and much easier to work with than epoxy. Can also put a nail in the tip and reuse a week later if necessary.

    This stuff works really well and is easier to use than an epoxy. Used it on a slip-on rocker for my 99 Silverado. Spread it out and clamped the rocker in place overnight and it was good to go the next day.

    Was looking for a quick way to attach a slip on rocker panel to help pass inspection. This did the job. Easy to use in a caulking gun.
