Silicone Epoxy is a high temperature epoxy with excellent chemical resistance. It provides superior resistance to water spotting, even under adverse conditions and is DOT noncorrosive.
What’s the difference between silicone and epoxy?
Epoxy will set into a strong hard inflexible material. Silicone rubber is softer and more flexible, and is thus preferred for sealing cracks and such, since it will withstand changes in temperature without cracks opening up. Epoxy is usually used in applications like fiberglass, or as a glue-like material.
