Question

adhesive that is almost transparent and feels like caulking or rubber


i have a very small door alarm magnet that used to be affixed using some sort of glue/epoxy that felt like rubber or very hard caulking and was almost transparent. the magnet is a cylinder of maybe 1/4" x 1". it was almost entirely wrapped in that adhesive stuff and held very firmly.

does anybody know what kind of adhesive that may be? or what other kind i could use for the same application. while it was very strong, it was also relatively easy to peel off leaving almost no mark.

Probably Silicone caulk, or something made by 3m.

Transparent PolySeamseal by Loctite works well. Also mirror adhesive. And there are many others.

Lexell or equivalent.

I think the competitor is quad something or other. That is if it set up hard on the outside.

Check on Goop or Shoe Goo, both by eclectic industries (I think). Very tough solvent based, semi-flexible, clear adhesives. Considerably more pricey than caulkings but not intended for very large projects. About $6 for a medium sized tube at ACE hardware. I think Walmart even carries it but not sure of the department.
