Silicone sealants typically fall into one of two main categories, namely neutral cure and acid cure (or acetoxy) variants.
Is sealant better than silicone?
The inorganic composition means that silicone is resistant to UV rays, making it a better option than polyurethane sealant, which will eventually revert back to its natural form. Silicone is compatible with many different materials, including glass, metal and tile, but it doesn’t bond well to wood.
What is the difference between caulking and silicone?
The main difference between Caulk and Silicone is that Caulk is for big purposes like in construction projects or in house, whereas silicone is mainly used to bind surfaces like metal, glass and plastic. Caulk is paintable and silicone is non paintable paint do not stick on these silicone sealants.
How do I choose silicone sealant?
In case of high temperatures
For applications exposed to high temperatures, look for a high-temperature silicone adhesive caulk. For a tough, watertight, mildew-resistant seal, we recommend using Loctite 100% Silicone.
