Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plainview Product Failure. Poor Manufacturing.
I bought a tube and loaded into my simple caulk gun. Nothing came out the top as I pushed. Instead, the bottom cap broke and caulk was oozing out the bottom. I then foolishly bought another tube. Carefully repeated the steps with the same results. Failure for two tubes purchased at different times from different stores.

This product is horrible! We used it recently on a new bathroom vanity and granite countertop. The caulking discolored the wood and it now looks like a bright yellow highlighter. Horrible experience. Buyers please be cautious when purchasing this product.

Replaced my shower 4 years ago, used this caulk. Prepped the area carefully. Made sure it was clean and dry prior to application. Four years later, it is separating from the shower pan, and I am getting water on the floor. Not really sure what to use instead, as this was supposed to be the best.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Art For mounting a drop-in kitchen sink
I recommend it with reservations. I have used this product many times in the past, with excellent results. However, the last time I used it to mount a sink it just refused to cure and remained a sticky mess for a couple of days, at which time I had to clean it out and re-do the job. The tube has an expiration date, with a life of about one year. The tube I had used was close to the expiration date, but not yet expired. So, beware, check the expiration date or you will make a mess of it. Incidentally, I have used automotive type silicone caulks purchased in squeeze tubes at auto parts stores. Those silicones can last in their used but properly sealed tubes for many years. Why this huge difference in products' performance?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vicky Simple! Check the date and poke a hole!
Ok, so I read the reviews that warned against buying this product close to the expiration date. What's that saying? "Learning from my mistakes makes me smart; learning from others' mistakes makes me a genius". If your product was runny and never cured or set, you are using outdated silicone caulk. If the product you are buying is close to the exp date, load all outdated tubes in a basket, grab a store employee, and tell him he needs to send it back. Then find another store that cares about customer satisfaction.
So I clipped the tip of a new tube of caulk and set out to use this product with a caulking gun. I pushed and pushed. It wouldn't come out. It seemed all dried up. So I got my husband to try, and he squeezed real hard. The man's got MUSCLES! He is FIT! Too bad. Because all the caulking began oozing from the back of the tube and messed all over the gun. That debunked my "dried out" theory. Then I remembered that the gun had a long wire on the side of it, and I began putting 2+2 together. I looked closely at the nozzle and saw a dark square at the base. "Hmmm!" I thought to myself, "if I stick this wire in this hole..." BOOM! I cleaned off my gun and tube, placed the tube back on the gun, and it worked like a charm! If your caulk won't come out, even after clipping the tip, try poking a hole in the tip. The directions do say that you must poke a hole in the tip. What's that saying? "If, at first, you don't succeed, read the directions!"
One more suggestion: cut the tip small. If it's not large enough, you can alway cut off more. But if you clip too much off, it will ooze all over the place and you can't undo a big clip...unless perhaps you poked a hole in the cap and taped it firmly with electrical tape. But better to do it right the first time.

Worked very good to mount an under mount sink to a granite countertop. All the complaints about not curing and the tube bottom popping off sound like poor handling or improper use. You have to break the foil seal inside the tip after you remove a portion of the tip or nothing will come out. This caulk is a little loose compared to silicone I, but that's due to the lack of curing agents inside. No problems here.

I installed a new shower door. Made sure the old caulk was removed. The flow out if the caulking tube was smooth acting and easy to place where it was needed. After waiting the 12 hours to cure it looks great. Can't really tell there is any caulk there. Doing a great job of waterproofing the shower.
