What is the odor in Renew Silicone Adhesive?
The odor present is a characteristic of the type of silicone this chemical material represents. The odor given off is acetic acid (vinegar smell). It naturally occurs in single-component silicone compounds. The acetic acid is a by-product of the cure cycle. When the cure cycle has expired, the odor is eliminated. The odor is harmless, although we recommend using in an environment with adequate ventilation. The adhesive in it's cured state is inert.
