I need an advice about silicon paints . Its like silicon ,just that it is made as paint and i have never used it on wood surfaces .
Will it hold strong ? I am not searching for beauty now ,but just for the strongest sealing and lasting coating . I have made some experiments by painting a tiny wooden square with it and submerging it in water for a week . It seems to hold strong there ,but silicon is soft and i don't know how it will hold on to outside weather .
Hi V, if it is made and formulated for wood, though i have not personally seen any that are, then my best advice would be to contact the manufacturer as to it's suitability for your particular needs.
We can discuss it here of course, but without knowing the whole picture as to what other resins/compounds/additives/etc., may be involved, as to provide excellent exterior application life, it would be at most speculative.
You can if you want, tell us the brand name and what info is on the can, but that would still be little to go on as to giving recommendation of it being suitable for your needs. Even a MSDS would only give evidence to the solvents or diluents etc., without any further resin solids info. And a PI sheet only application parameters and maybe a little more.
I'll leave it up to you to decide what is the best way to go, but my suggestion of contacting the manufacturer in in my opinion the best option.
Of course, if it states on the can that is meant for a certain or specific end use such as metal etc., then there is of course a very high chance it would not give optimal results on wood.
