Flex Seal

Quietly getting back into the cigar culture.....

So,I have a humidor project that I want to get started on, and out of the gate I know that the box is not airtight, or i don't trust it to be any way. Also after doing some of the modifications I need to do there will be several holes in it.

Do you guys think it would be OK to seal with flex seal? I know it has a strong smell, so I wold have to let it air out for a while, a good long while, but I also read that it was food safe, but not recommended to come in contact with drinking water.

I would end up putting cedar over it before the project was finished.

Thanks

not for the area I need to seal......

I need to update some of the pics, I pulled out the divider and stuff inside the fridge, there are brackets and screw holes now, and I am not real sure about that the interior material and construction will hold humidity. The thought process was to create a sealed background environment then add the cedar over top

Ok, I think I understand now.
Looking as the MSDS for Flex Seal, not sure I'd go that route to seal/coat the interior.

You've got petroleum asphalt, rubber, petroleum distillates, and hydrogen sulfide in the can.

Fair enough,

I only asked because I saw that it was food safe somewhere

my thoughts are, as long as it is done off-gassing it "might" be OK.

The cigars are going to be in boxes, bins, and shelves, and there will be Spanish cedar lining the fridge as well.

I am, however, still on the fence...

You could make a small replica and try it with a cigar or two to see what happens before using on the “Production” humidor.

Taking all of this information in, I would be leery of putting it in my build.

I think pure silicone sealant is your best bet. Once it's cured, it's neutral. Smells bad while it's curing, but after that period you're good to go.

i have the whole inside of the fridge i need to apply a coating too, so that it will hold humidity, and be protected from the moist conditions

edit cuz my Chromebook is dumb
