User Review: Coghlan's Seam Seal (#8040)
Price Paid: $1
I could never find any info regarding this product, so I thought I'd provide my input for any others thinking of using this product.
Short and sweet: I would not use this product again, nor recommend it to anyone, unless you were in a complete pinch, could find nothing else, and were unable to mix your own.
I've used this product twice (giving it the benefit of the doubt) on two different tents, each time with the same result. It goes on clear and predominantly dries white. The majority of the areas dry white and begin to crack almost immediately upon curing. Other areas dry ok -clear and somewhat pliable.
I thought that I could avoid the inconsistent curing by somehow mixing the sealer in the tube (squeezing it back and forth and shaking it vigorously) prior opening the tube. This is why I gave it a second chance.
Same outcome the second time around; this time I used a new tube as well. I spent 45 minutes pealing off the sealer as best I could and then applying my own homemade sealer (which is what I should have done in the first place). I emailed Coghlan's, but have not received a reply.
I gave it 1/2 a star since it is readily available at most sporting goods aisles (non-specialty stores) and for the applicator tip, which worked well for me.
