You can get it at Bunnings. That's where I got mine.

Sikiflex is great but messy. I used it on my lip spoiler, and it's got it sitting nice and flat. I used it on a few other areas too.

Most auto stores sell the black automative sikalfex - I'm assuming this is the one your chasing, as there are a variety of types of Sikaflex - it's a brand, kind of like saying I'm looking for a Ford, when your specifically after a Falcon...
Down here we have a sikaflex shop near were I work - I don't know if these exist elsewhere or if it's there head office or what, I've never actually been in there, but I didn't think that they had a range large enough to warrant a shop specific to them...

As everyone has said, Bunnings has it...make sure you get Sikaflex 11FC, it comes in black, white or grey colours...messy and sticky stuff, but works well...cheers Linz.

i use sickaflex at work everyyyyy day. im telling u, and please take me seriously. DONT TRY AND USE WATER TO CLEAN UP..... or your fingers... it will destroy it. and it is impossible (almost) to clean up.... be cery cery careful with it lol... we dont use the sicka in the cardboard tubes, that fit into a caulking gun.
we buy sicka in a sausage :-) that u put into a mastik gun.. much easier to use.. but then u will have to buy 1. so yeh caulking gun is ur path i guess. and sicka will hold a ship together. dont kno why the didnt build the titanic like that :-P

good luck btw
alex

sikaflex is what most people use to hold the 'bump' strips on the side of their cars on with. its fkn messy. I dont really know how to clean it properly, so i'll be interested to find that out.

as above use wax n grease remover (prepsol), but acetone or thinners works just as well.. (beware or damaging paint tho).


i used to use it every day also. awesome product.. very strong but messy as hell.

acetone works a treat for cleaning it up, but it takes the paint too after a while.
