Is this considered food grade or food safe sealer? I'm looking for a sealer that I can use for building a mash tun for homebrewing and I want to make sure this is food safe.

Answer: 
The DAP Household and Aquarium Silicone is only rated for incidental food contact. For your purposes, you will need a NSF approved silicone sealant, unfortunately DAP does not offer a sealant with that rating.

Answer: 
It is aquarium safe, so it should be, however in the product description someplace, it had that it was acceptable for, what was the phrase? It was something like temporary food placement. It was an odd statement because I thought that since it is aquarium safe it would be food safe. But, look at the product description somewhere for something about this to clarify what I'm telling you.

Answer: 
No, not on the carafe itself. The sealant is NOT food-grade. I do think it could be used on surfaces not in contact with coffee, such as putting a bead around the lip to reattach the top/lid/handle back onto the carafe. It can take up to 400 degrees F, which is surprising for an aquarium adhesive, but that's what it is.

2.8 oz. Silicone Aquarium Sealant is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this again & provide my own cap. I have used DAP products my whole life. As a sealant they are the best; however, after I sealed my coffee carafe, which used only a tiny bit, I realized, there was no way provided to close the tube or nozzle to prevent the whole tube from drying out before the next use. Fortunately, I have had this problem before with manufacturers who failed to "think it through" and simply used a wire connector on the nozzle. I would expect more from such a professional company. Just make sure to have a mediumse size wire connector handy before opening the tube, Otherwise, it gets 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best glue I've EVER used for household item repair!! Have repaired coffee mug handles, glass bakeware lids, china/pottery items. Holds. Maintains hold despite oven, microwave, dishwasher exposure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from silicone This product sealed great and was easy to use. The only problem I had is the tube was difficult to squeze and seemed to work better if i rolled the bottom of the tube up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well, great price Finally I found some aquarium grade silicone glue at a decent price. Works great. I did not want to chance my fish to regular silicone glue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Larger Tube Great stuff, but would be easier to seal a larger tank if the tube was bigger and fit into a caulking gun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!! I used this on two tanks.. Drilled the glass to install bulkheads for an internal overflow I built for inside the tanks out of black acrylic and sealed it in place with this.. Worked perfectly for my project..
