Hi Guys,

Looking for some general advice with some solvents, adhesives and sealants...Basically Wondering what my options would be looking to find some form of adhesive (or varnish, paint etc) which when cured, sealants would not bond to (silicone based, for example) but which would also be unaffected by pure acetone, so not melt, change chemical composition etc...Any Advice welcome!

One of the best adhesives around for general use and to be chemically inert when cured are epoxy resins such as Araldite....silicone will adhere to it, but not bond.
What have you in mind?
John :)
Thanks John, I don't want to say to much in public, I will PM you.

Edit: says I can't PM you, drop me a message if you want
