Which Roof & Flashing Sealant Do you Prefer?


TRG In a previous conversation you told me what you liked, I wrote it down, that was some time ago, and now must confess to losing my scribble.

While going over GAF Timbertex installation instructions I noticed Sonneborn NP1 and Henkel PL Urethane specified for high wind areas. Both these products claim a permanent , water and weatherproof seal.

Has GE Silicone II Blacktop & Roof been dethroned. ( assuming it ever had the throne)

I thought it odd that the roofing supply stores in my area sell none of Urethanes but do sell Silicone based sealants of one sort or another.

So then, what works in real world roofing applications?

Depends on what application your using ir for. I love NP1 and NP2. NP1 comes in a tube, is a one part, and is a moisture cure. NP2 is a two part, chemical cure and comes in a bucket, available in almost any color. I like silicones too, Dow and Pecora make some nice products as well. Typically my rule of thumb has been to use the urethanes where I dont expect a high amount of movement (ie surface mounted counterflashing) and the silicones where a lot of movement is expected.

Good answer! I just found out PL (Henkel) has just come out with a new product, a hybred in fact. If you can believe that. It's named Ultimate hybred sealant + adhesive.

I have not found the NP 1 in my area. 3M makes a 5200 Urethane thats great. Good for below waterlines. Not considered removable. There is a 4200 not quite as strong but quite good (I think) also, and removable.

Interesting thread. I tend to buy Black Jack Neoprene. Must use 12 or more tubes each year. Ultra19 in the tube looks decent too. Just bough some to use with a PolyGlass roof system.

Most of my roofs are metal, so I don't get to use much sealant.

Based on the information I have gathered thus far Urethanes are being introduced for a increasing array of applications. I bought PL Polyurethane today. Gonna use it to secure some of my brother in laws ridge shingles.

TRG, Yes I could have called. Or, simply emailed you. Posting was more fun and now thanks to you, the board knows about the "BOMB".

We like Tremco Dymonic for reglets and flashing joints. You can tool it "unlike Geocell". Also has all the colors to match mortor etc.. We use Bulldog to hand seal shingles.

Well, I'd like to know who has used it, on what and what success they had with it? So then, thats what I meant by "Whats The Story".
