Dicor roof sealant

There seems to be a few different types of Dicor roof sealant, not sure which one to get for my 2012 Sunseeker.
Amazon has no less than 3 different part numbers for each; lap sealant and the non-sag. Help!

I used the self-leveling lap sealant below and have had absolutely no problem. I applied it during "the rainy season" while we were camping because there was a leak around my TV antenna area and skylight over the shower.

Despite having only a brief stop in the rain, it sealed perfectly and we've had zero problem.

Self leveling lap sealant is for horizontal surfaces (i.e. roof), non-sag sealant is for vertical surfaces (i.e. Windows, baggage doors, etc.).

Dicor site preparation

I have a couple of spots on my roof that need to be sealed. How do you prep the site before applying he new Dicor. Does the old need to be stripped off prior to adding the new or is it applied over top of the existing Dicor?
I appreciate the help.

You may want to go on dicors website Found out right before I was getting ready to do mine that I had the wrong caulking. There is Edpm and two types of tpo which mine required a solvent and a special caulking. On dicors web Site there are instructions to tell what type of roof you have

I use very little DICOR anymore. I taped my entire roof last month using Eternabond tape and should be good to go for at least 10 years. Dicor usually cracks in 3-4 years and regular inspections should be conducted on anything sealed with Dicor.

If you use it, old dicor area should be scrubbed clean and I often use a hot steel scraping knife to remove as much of it as I can. Be careful not to damage the roof. Be very liberal applying it.

Skyliner, did you remove the old dicor before applying the eternabond? Thanks for your time and feedback.
