3M 4200 - Aussie Equivalent

What is an equivalent of 3M 4200 in Australia?


I need something with very good underwater bonding capability, but can be removed when needed (AKA not 3M 5200)

Sika 291i has nearly identical specifications to 4200 (292i is very close to 5200). A fair number of the Sika products test better when used with their primers (3M recommends primers in fewer use cases). I think both of those are relatively available in Oz.

I’ve used Selleys MarineFlex (and a few of their other similar products) above the waterline but not below, not sure where they fall compared to 4200/5200.
