I recently purchased at HD a small tube of:
GE Silicone II
100% Silicone Sealant
Kitchen and Bath
With Bio Seal
Haven't used a product like this in many years, and am wondering if
I got the wrong "stuff," or if it is defective.
The way I remember 100% Silicone (used to be called RTV, I think; but
this probably dates me) cured in a few hours to a rubber-like product.
Tempted to call it a solid, but it would be a reasonably hard "rubber"
This stuff, after a day, still looks like it did when it came out of the
Perhaps a bit more solid, but certainly not rubber like.
More like a Caulk, perhaps.
Doesn't the fact that the tube says 100% Silicone mean that it should,
in a few hours, cure to a rubber like composition ?
Or, the fact that it says Kitchen and Bath mean that it is really a
Caulk ? If so, what should I now buy instead, and what should the label
Might it be an "old" tube ? What's the shelf life of this kind of
product ? :
Any thoughts on this would be most appreciated.
