Hi all just after a bit of information. I use to buy sand sealer from the local model shop but there no longer there so not able to get hold of any. What are people using? It’s not for the hull it for the decking and wheel house. Thanks

Just thought this might help, always good to get a bargain. I don't know for sure but was told it's only cellulose dope with added talcum powder.

Hi Boatshed,
If it is cellulose dope it'll smell like pear drops! Don't taste like 'em tho 😲

"Talcum powder? certainly sir, just walk this way", said the bandy legged chemist.
"If I could walk that way I wouldn't need the talcum powder"! replied the customer 😁😁 Oldies but goldies 😎

Doug it was Vaseline when I heard that joke first. But yes dope and talc ( or possibly micro balloons ) but not all dopes smell of pear drops only if the solvent is Amyl/Ethyl Acetate. Same stuff two names but it would taste of the drops as sml amounts are used to give them that taste. Or it was.I used to get as much as I wanted from a lady friend (Platonic) who worked in the sweet factory. It was also used in seaside pebbles sweets.She smuggled it out in pop bottles. White lemonade of course. Those were the days eh?👍👍😋

Mornin' OT, yes you're right about the acetates; ester group used (or used to be?) for various synthetic flavourings. I remember the pebbles, real tooth crunchers 😲 so you had a 'sweet heart' in the factory Eh! 😉👍
