Loctite Crystal Clear Polyseamseal Caulk was applied around my outside shutters three months ago, and within a day the caulk turned clear. Life was good. Unfortunately, two months later the caulk started turning yellow. Not a good look!.Now, I have to go out and paint all the caulk over with paint so it won't stand out. Since this product yellows it should be recalled. Also, if you must use it don't unless you plan on painting over it, or you are caulking a place hidden from view.

Good painters caulk, it is paintable. It goes on white but dries clear and when painted it covers great. I would buy it again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Vandyman71 STAY AWAY! Terrible Product . . . Won't Cure, Stays White.
I purchased this product at Home Depot on June 3, 2014, and applied it the same day to seal the joint between the red brick of my front porch and the adjoining concrete sidewalk. The lot number printed on the tube is 14064-037-2. After one week the white caulk was still gooey and white, still having not cured after one week! None of the caulk bead showed any sign of turning clear, not even on the edges. Its white color was such an eyesore that, this morning, I labored to scrap off the defective caulk, which took about 10 times longer than it took to apply it.
Earlier, I had called the Customer Service number printed on the tube, explaining the problem and asking how long it would take for the caulk to turn clear. There is nothing printed on the tube that gives any indication of time. For that matter, there is nothing printed on tube that even mentions that the caulk is white when applied, then is suppose to turn clear when cured. The representative asked where the caulk had been applied and whether it had rained any after applying the caulk. I responded that there had not been any rain for at least a couple of days after applying the caulk. The representative asked how thick the caulk had been applied. I responded that it had been applied with a bead approximately 1/4 to 3/8 inch, which was then smoothed in the joint with my finger. The representative responded that it takes longer for the caulk to cure, the thicker the bead. This makes sense but not curing after a week is unacceptable. Considering how gooey the caulk still this morning, it might take a month if ever for the caulk to cure. This is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!
I have used a number of different brand clear sealant products in the past and have never had a problem with any of them. Stay away from Loctite Crystal Clear Polyseamseal Caulk unless you want to risk having to face the laborious task of removing it when you find it won't cure and turn clear. It's a product that, in my opinion, is defective and should be recalled by the manufacturer.
