    I have a number of Dow Corning 895 tubes available. I'll sell them for R75 each, pickup only (Observatory).

    Um, yeah, why not. I'm home most of this weekend. If you aim for some time around midday that should be fine.

    How many do you want? I think I have 10 or so.

    Dunno either. 2 or maybe 3 sounds about right. They're 300ml or so each.

    If anybody else wants, I have another 15+ tubes. They expire this month, so If you have a project to do soon, I'd love to sell it.

    Eish! I only saw this now. I have contact details for den braven in cape town. Unfortunately they only sell by the box(24 tubes) and there isn't always stock in the cape. If anyone wants the details pls PM me and i can forward it to you.

    I've used the rest of my silicone on the glazing in my greenhouse, so I don't have any more.

    FWIW, ABE sells Dow Corning in boxes of 12.

    Yes, I used over 100 tubes of 895 in my tank. They also do 795, which comes in clear only (I think?). Both are neutral cure.
