3m 08946 Clear Silicone Paste – 8 Oz. (Auto Accessory) 3137

Review for silicone paste

Price was $21.02. This product was recommended to me on a forum offering help and advice for my make of car. The driver's window had become very sluggish and reached the point where it froze completely half way up each time. I could only close it by pressing the close button and pushing up the glass! anyway i was on the forum asking for advice regarding replacement of the motor and mechanism. Hold on said one guy, it may just need lubricating and he recommended this product. It's fabulous. Took a couple of weeks to get to me as i couldn't get it here in spain. Applied it as advised, now the window works great. Thoroughly recommended.

Prologue

Used this stuff for my cars' brakes. I'm not a mechanic but a diy-er and the stuff i used for brake jobs before this was some generic brake grease from autozone. That stuff doesn't last and becomes thick gunk pretty quickly. I got this specifically due to ericthecarguy on youtube. Couldn't find this anywhere else. I used the generic stuff on rear drum brakes, but a month later, heard bad grinding noise coming from the back. Inspected the brakes and the brake shoes were grinding on the back plate and actually left an impression. Sanded the back plate a little, and lubed it up with the 3m anti-seize, and the brakes sound and feel great again. . Update: (11/2013). Brakes still sound great, so i'm still very satisfied. I also picked up 3m silicone paste. I continued to use both products on my front disc brakes as well as other disc brake jobs i did for my friend's and family's car(s). Forgot to mention that what you may receive is a different looking bottle. It's a white plastic bottle with a metal lid, and a black sticker/label all around. I'll post up a pic as soon as i can. And i still don't know what to do with all the generic brake grease i got before this. Best silicone paste | 3m-Auto Accessory Review as-of ( Jul 2018 ) Details 3M 08946 Clear Silicone Paste - 8 oz.

3m 08946 clear silicone paste - 8 oz. Review (08946)

My father had a can of this stuff when i was a kid, and i've never managed to find it . Until now. Ericthecarguy reminded me of this product while doing repairs, and posted the link. . It's pricey to be sure, but one can will last most diyers possibly their lifetime. . Get it for all of those uses where heat will break down your usual grease, or where rubber/plastic surfaces prohibit the use of standard petroleum grease. You'll find plenty of uses, trust me. -A.

I purchased this for the new breaks i put on my truck. Works very well. . Pros:. 1. Works very well for what it is designed to do. 2. The cap has a built in brush. . Cons:. None, it is pretty messy to use with the built in brush but it is grease so i do not feel this is a reason to give it a bad mark. I just used my finger to apply it instead of the brush so that i could get a more even coat.

Permatex 24200 Medium Strength Threadlocker Blue, 6 ml

Permatex medium strength threadlocker blue formula is an all-purpose threadlocker ideal for all nut and bolt applications 6mm to 20mm. Eliminating the need for stocking expensive lock nuts and lock washers, this threadlocker locks and seals while preventing parts loosening due to vibration. It also protects threads from corrosion and is removable with hand tools for easy disassembly. Applied as a liquid or gel, threadlockers are superior to conventional lock washers, nylon inserts, and other mechanical devices because they secure the entire fastener assembly against loosening from shock and vibration by filling the space between threaded metal parts, curing to form a tough, adhesive bond and seal. They also seal the threads against leakage, preventing rust and corrosion.

Permatex 24300 Surface Insensitive Threadlocker Blue, 0.34 oz.

Cheaper than the locktite, works just the same. This is not a gel yet not quite a liquid, that was a nice surprise as it holds nicely when apply and during installation.

Permatex surface insensitive threadlocker blue is a medium/high strength threadlocker for general-purpose applications. Especially well-suited for 6mm to 20mm fasteners that have a slight oil film, this threadlocker prevents loosening due to vibration. Oil resistant and removable with hand tools for easy disassembly. Applied as a liquid or gel, threadlockers are superior to conventional lock washers, nylon inserts, and other mechanical devices because they secure the entire fastener assembly against loosening from shock and vibration by filling the space between threaded metal parts, curing to form a tough, adhesive bond and seal.

Perfect for items that have to be taken apart for maintenance from time to time. It beats loctite by a mile. And i'm a retired master mechanic. It even works in the presence of oil residue. An out standing product by permatex thread locker.

Permatex-24300-surface-insensitive-threadlocker-blue,-0.34-oz.-(auto-accessory) set picture

- B. EvaThis is awesome stuff! not to be confused with loktite! even tough they pretty much both do the same job. Blue permetex is used on 1/4" to 3/4 " threads. If you want to use a smaller thread than 1/4" then you would be looking for purple. And larger than 3/4" you would most likely want to use red. . In the title of the product you will notice that it says 'surface insensitive' what this means is that this permetex blue can tolerate minor surface contaminations from various oils, such as cutting oil, any lubrication oils, anti-corrosion oils and protection fluids. This product is a perfect choice to use on any kind of machines such as gas or diesel engines, lawn mower repairs, or just about any job which may be a little oily or greasy. And is particularly useful when using in a high vibration appplication. . This product also does a good job of sealing any threads that it is applied to. It is actually so good at sealing threads that you can use this in place of teflon thread sealing tape. You just will need to let this stuff cure at least overnight and prefferably over 24 hrs. Just to insure a complete set/cure has occured. . There are many different permatex threadlockers available for any application, including low strength(purple), high strength(red), high strength high temperature(red), fast cure(green), penetrating grade(green), and gel in most strengths can be bought for most any overhead applications, also gel sticks can be bought for a no drip application. Whatever your threadlocking need may be, permetex has you covered with thier multitude of choices! . . I had a bolt that kept coming loose on my lawnmower handle with all of the heavy vibration the mower had. I was having to tighten that bolt almost every time i mowed. I had the bolt fall out a couple times and getting the exact replacement was not easy. After fighting with this for over two years i finally figured to put some permetex blue surface insensitive on it and have not had any problems since, and that was 3 seasons ago! i use permetex on my aircraft building too! i fly r/c aircraft and this stuff has been a blessing! . . *take note - if you intend to use this on aluminum threads or an aluminum block (male or female threads) then do not use one that is too strong as you may damage the threads when trying to remove the screw or bolt. I usually use it in moderation when using it on any aluminum parts,

Good threadlocker to have on hand. I have not used it yet so i can not give it 5 stars but don't think i will have a problem with it.

The F.A.Q. for 3m 08946 clear silicone paste - 8 oz.

I saw this paste being recommended by etcg for lubing the brake caliper bolt so i bought it for a brake job. I can't judge it's effectiveness until i check the caliper bolt again in maybe a year or two. However, the paste is really a good lube for other uses. I applied on the garage door rail to reduce noise. I applied on car door hinges to eliminate the squeaks. It went on generously on the hood latch. I even applied between pvc pipe and wooden support on top of which the pipe rested (in the basement) to eliminate noise that comes whenever hot water passes through that caused the pipe to expand slightly and slide on the wood.

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: just opened and used last night. is everyone's version of this clear or milky white? mine was milky white and not clear like i thought this would be. did i get a bad can?


(1) Question: compared to "silglyde"?


(2) Question: does this come with a brush top?


(3) Question: can we use this on car brake? like the caliper systems ?


(4) Question: is this safe for lubricating flashlight thread and o-ring?


(5) Question: is this technically any different from napa's sil-glyde silicone grease? are the ingredients or the consistency any different?


(6) Question: why not buy a tub of super lube? much cheaper.


(7) Question: can i use it for plumbing


(8) Question: is this good for garage opener lubrication (screw type)?


(9) Question: has anyone done a comparison of 3m 08946 clear silicone paste -vs- permatex 24125 ceramic extreme brake parts lubricant?



(note) Question: where/how to get Automotive (manufacturer's brand) accessories & similiar Automotive's products

Rav4: replacing front rotors and pads and since this is my first time on this vehicle, watched a lot of you tubes. 1/4 of the vids recommended this product to lube the guide pins, as "brake grease" will expand and soften the rubber sleeve and o-ring on the tip of the guide. Some said the expansion, best case: had to replace the pin because it would not fit back into the sleeve, worst case: could not pull the pin out and had to purchase new calipers. So, i am not into fighting with my brakes down the road or giving the next owner a headache. I did one side today and will do the other tomorrow (who's in a rush). Once i put a few hundred miles on the brakes or have an issue right out of the gate, will update. Also purchased the pads and rotors on online store as well, sold by: callahan brake parts. Nice kit. See if i can do the link thing.  front 275 mm premium oe 5 lug 2 brake disc rotors + 4 ceramic brake pads + clips

Best 3m 08946 clear silicone paste - 8 oz. (auto accessory) in review

This product is a bear to find anywhere but here on online store. I live in southern georgia and i've tried all the car places around me but to only limited success. The closest i came was napa for just under $50. If they could order it (at first they found the item in the catalog but then it's availability came into question). This stuff is super! i have a 2001 honda cr-v (love that little car) whose windows were very sluggish going up. I saw a video on youtube that said if you're having this problem with any car with rubber window seals to grease the tracks with this and you're all set. I had tried a dry powdered lubricant first, then tried a white lithium grease lube and mixed together they made a royal mess. I cleaned it up but still no go. Dw-40 just runs down the tracks. I put this stuff in and it goes on thick, no running here. Once the rubber got conditioned and the grease was spread out the window worked like a charm. There are so many uses for this stuff. I can't say enough good things about it. Bit pricey but so worth it. Might take the door apart the grease up the inner window mechanism some day.

3m 08946 clear silicone paste - 8 oz.  like everything 3m; it does exactly what it states it would do. This is the perfect, clear silicone for dielectric and lubricating anything auto, rv and boat related. I use it to keep o-rings lubricated; rubber seals on anything automotive; and especially for soldering joints before heat shrink tubing. It will even hold gaskets in place, if you are not using rtv or other compounds.

The real deal. Don't settle for less when lubricating brake caliper pins or lubricating anything that touches rubber, like windows and window track mechanisms, suspension pieces (ball joint boots, steering part boots). Use on battery terminal posts as quality paste to prevent corrosion of battery terminals. . Absolutely worth the cost, and glad that online store carries it as it's hard to find.

N. Elizabeth, Lancashire says

There are very few products that i would consider garage essentials, this is one of them. It does everything they claim on the label.

Z. Megan, Hackney

This is great stuff can be used for brake slide pins and electrical connections like spark plugs. . The application brush attached to the cap makes it a mess free application!

X. Taylor, Trafford says

This stuff has about as many uses as duct tape! i bought it mainly for automotive purposes, but i have found it to be quite handy to have around. Used it to lube up bike chains, door hinges, padlocks, and pretty much any plastic or rubber parts. I especially liked what it did for my fridge drawers! holy crap they glide so easy! better than new! you will find countless millions of other uses if you walk around your house long enough. . This is the best price i have found online. I have been to advance, autozone, napa, carquest, o'reilly. No actual store has this stuff and most employees have never even heard of it. Get it here at online store and save yourself the frustration of striking out at every store. . Last but not least. Tip of the hat to eric the car guy for helping me discover such a wonderful product!

Silicone paste is what you want to use on the sliding sleeves and the rubber parts that are found on the exterior of the brake caliper. I've used a number of other products over the years and nothing works as well.

M. Anonymous, Luton says

This is an excellent grease as it is intended. 3m always made great product. It bit on pricy side but you get the high quality material that last. The bottle is huge with tons of grease. The brush is a bit course so i get your own brush that works for your need. Package was delivered in a sealed bag to prevent leakage and arrived with zero damage. Can't go wrong with this product.

D. Anonymous, Rotherham

I put 4 star only because how can i love it? . Are you kidding? ya i am in love with this. Anyway, it's what i ordered and totally legit. . I saw somebody give this a low star saying this is not clear in the bottle. Well, in the bottle it's sorta whitish but that is 100% legit it'll spread on clear. It's not because it's old, or a knock off, that's how it should and does look like.

Q. Melissa, Minnesota says

This stuff is great. I call it the worst kept best secret. I wish someone had told me about it sooner. I mean why don't people use this stuff more often? it's amazing. I use it for my car battery, electrical connections, my trailer lights, rubber bits like the car door gasket. It's like the duck tape for grease.

I have found that only napa offers a similar product locally, and it has a low melting point regardless of what the packaging states in my experience. This 3m product is fantastic for diy, shade tree, or professional automotive technicians or mechanics. I cannot believe no one stocks it locally which makes me wonder what most shops utilize to lubricate brake caliper sliding pins. If you are a diy kind of person this will last a long time, and technicians will be able to make much use of it if used sparingly. The price appears high, but it is worth the investment even if you only use this product twice a year. This will preserve your brake calipers for the years to come. 3m also has a fantastic copper anti-seize for use on the brake pads and shims themselves.

S. Nancy, Wolverhampton says

This is a long lasting, odorless, chemically inert, temperature stable, high quality lubricant made by 3m. The bottle features a brush that was designed by thoughtful people who intentionally bent it so the brush could reach the corners of the jar. If the brush were straight, it wouldn't be able to fish all of the grease out of the jar. All greases that i have ever purchased from 3m, permatex, and crc include a bent brush. I would be concerned if the brush were not bent and take that as a queue that the product might not be authentic. . I included four photos of the 3m silicone paste and and a photo of an old jar of 100% silicone grease from a scientific supplier. Side by side, they both look, smell, and feel exactly the same. . One of the benefits of silicone grease compared to other grease products is that silicone grease does not off-gas smelly fumes the way other petroleum distillate greases typically do. For example, i often use lucas x-tra heavy duty grease, which is very smelly, to lubricate bushings and automotive connections. Lucas products smell but since it's used under the car, it's not big deal. If someone were lubricating something that people have close contact with, or something inside of the home, they should use an odorless grease. . I personally use silicone grease on all braking components because i have had issues with inferior greases that vaporize and leave me with squeaky brakes.

W. Courtney, New Jersey

This stuff has so many uses and the tub is the best way to use it. I've gotten it in tubes before and it's much more messy and you waste a lot more but with this tub and the brush on the lid you can use just the amount you need and if you get too much just put it back. The brush make it easy to get this where you want it and no where else and keep your hands clean.
