Sealant and Tape

  VHB tape is used to hold down mount sets and combiner boxes.  Sealant is used to protect the tape from the elements so it doesn't degrade and loose adhesion over time.  Dicor is self leveling but not used as an adhesive.  SikaFlex is harder to work with, but has additional bonding capabilities.  One tube of sealant is sufficient for two panels and one combiner box.  Installations larger than seven panels should use three tubes.
