Hi James......contact adhesive....as sold by any of the trimmers.....dont be tempted to use evostik/bostik...if your going to Stonleigh you can usually get it from BAS as they normally have a stand.....or contact them direct or Aldridge.......Steve

Hi James


There is an excellent post on this topic from Rory (rfs1957) and from his recommendation I am using Loctite 5375 on all my seals being replaced this winter and have been delighted with it.

It is not contact adhesive - indeed you need to masking tape the seals in position - cures in 24 hours but the seals are removable with care if you need to trim or thin any after fitting. You also get plenty of time to ensure they are correctly fitted before it starts to go off.

It is clear too so does not show if there is any excess. That said, it you use it with a standard 'gun' it is a very easy to apply neatly.

Would definitely be my recommendation - hope the job goes well.

cheers
