sealing hatch glass with silaprene?

I have a tube of a sealant/adhesive called Silaprene. Do you think it would be good for securing/sealing new hatch glass? When I ordered new hatch gaskets, the hatch company (Atkins & Hoyle) sent me the Silaprene to use for attaching the gasket to the frame, but the description on the tube makes it seem like it would work on the glass too. There isn't much info on this product online.

Check this page:

Royal Adhesives & Sealants

This seems tobe a brand name which has different caulking and adhesives.

Hello,

Brian Atkins, Atkins & Hoyle Ltd (Marine Hatch Manufacturer). We recommend the Silaprene for gaskets, Silicone for the acrylic. Silaprene can get very messy if you are not careful, Silicone is a bit easier to clean up and holds a good seal in many temperatures and conditions. Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions regarding hatch repairs, I would be happy to help.

Re: sealing hatch glass with silaprene?

Hi Brian, you and I actually talked on the phone when I ordered that silaprene, and also at some other time when you sold me some kind of silicone for the hatch glass. Both ended up working amazingly -- I have all new gaskets and they're leak-proof, and the hatch glass install went smoothly and is also leak-free. Thanks for your help!

I'm glad to see you've joined SailNet as an official representative of your brand. I see you've mentioned this on your profile page, but forum rules say you should also mention it in your signature, as described here.
