    What is it going to be used for? An acrylic caulk is not made to withstand those conditions really...there are better-suited products out there. Once you tell me what it's adhering to, I'll give you some better possiblities.

    Does it need to hold the structure (tank?) together? Is it just sealing up corners and cracks? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    If it doesn't need to be pliable or ever removed, I would use something like a Plumber's Epoxy or JB Weld even. There are so many epoxys and sealants out there to choose from. Best thing to do is go to your local hardware store and start reading packages. My recommendation is stay away from acrylic caulk.
