I put Eternabond on all roof seams four years ago and have not had to touch it since. Leave the Dicor in place and thoroughly clean the area with acetone prior to using the Eternabond


But, But did you add Dicor to the edges of the Etrenabond??

I did Eternabond on both seams and ran a thin line of Dicor down the edge of the edge of the tape. I'm a belt and suspenders kinda guy. I also put pink stuff in the water system and blow that out with air.

That's what we did. Even with the prep, a thin line of Dicor is recommended.

Eternabond doesn't state it, but our RV tech does. I thought it was a little over the top, but after we applied Eternabond around our skylight and an edge came up, I can see that he was right.

Poor prep and not enough rub/roll. So why even use Eternabond? Just float a good layer of Dicor on the area.

The idea of using Eternabond is to eliminate maintenance.

I'm agreeing with jplante4, why don't you question him? What's wrong with a double seal anyway.

ReneeG is correct. Eternabond and Dicor is the preferred practice at the shop. One reason not to use Eternabond alone on the vents and skylights is that it is difficult to roll the tape down around screws. You can see the lumps in the tape where the seam screws are in my pic. Rolling the tape activates the adhesive. As I mentioned, the shop has switch over to Proflex for skylights, vents, solar panels and WiFi antennas.

Ask Eternabond. Installed properly it will NOT come loose.

So your entire argument is "The manufacturer who gets all the profits from the sale of their product recommends this"?
