    silicone

    I siliconed the inside of my box to make sure it was air tight.

    Well guess what the silicone did not stick very well to the mdf. If u rub you finger accross it will peel right off.

    I used door and window silicone.


    So I said F$CK and took my time and peeled all the silicone off and sanded it smooth.
    It looks like the silicone did not dry on the underside. it left the wood damp looking when it came off.

    What went wrong?

    Re: silicone

    Maybe you had some saw dust on the box when you tried to silicone it and it didnt get a good bond. Only thing i can think of. How long did you let it dry?

    I personally hate silicone... for my boxes and in women's chest.

    I just caulk my enclosures like crazy.

    Re: silicone

    I don't remember the exact type of caulk (not at home), but it's the same for filling walls or nail holes.

    for silicone i've used ...forgot the brand, but it has XST on it. silicone III i believe. It worked pretty well. I just hate it because it's too **** sticky and messes up my clothes and is a ****** to clean off my hands.

    Re: silicone

    Did you apply the silicone over wet wood glue?

    Re: silicone

    No i let the glue dry for 24 hours before i applied the silicone.

    I think it was just a bad tube. i just put some on a junk pieace of mdf and i will see if it sticks to that or not.

    The stuff I got was black also dont know if that makes a difference. It is silicone II

    Re: silicone

    black caulk is for the big holes. white caulk for the medium holes. and yellow caulk for the tiny holes.
