paint lid gaskets

Jon Miller <atsf@...>
 

Just found a new material to use for your used Floquil and Scalecoat
paint lids. Seems the plastic material used in SoBe drink lids is very
solvent resistant. It can be pried out of the lid and used as is for
Scalecoat. It can be cut down for Floquil bottles. I have had one in a old
Floquil bottle which contains MEK. The material has swollen (in about 3
days) but still seals fine and does not appear to be dissolving. The test
piece in the Scalecoat lid has been there 5 days with no apparent change.
These seals really great as they are a soft plastic (or something).
