Hello, this is 100% silicone formula is non-toxic and translucent.Thank you.
Thank you for your question. GE Branded silicones are manufactured with a 100% silicone rubber matrix. Additives are introduced (less than 0.05% weight) to certain formulas to create profiles of features that work best in certain applications. As a point of interest, silicone is an inorganic polymer chain. Mold does not grow on silicone but does grow on organic residues commonly found in wet locations such as soap, food particles, etc.. If you are seeking a GE branded silicone product without additional biocides, please consider the GE All Purpose Silicone 1 commonly found in the paint department Caulk & Sealant aisle.
Hello, this is not meant to be used on concrete - thank you.
Hello, this product is intended for use with food, thank you.
Hello, this silicone is more for plastic applications, you can buy a silicone that is used specifically for aluminum at your local Home Depot store, thank you.
If you want something really clear then find GE Crystal Clear silicone for Granite and Marble. If you don't mind slightly milky, about like skim milk diliuted another 3:1, then this or any of the other ge silicone clears is about the same. the milky part of the translucence is silica added to the silicone adhesive to add bulk at low cost. If you want to put a pane of glass or acrylic sheet in a traditional wood doorway with oil paint correctly then it isn't done with silicone caulk at all. First remove all the old glazing putty on the outside. The pane is held in place with tiny sharp metal triangles called "glazing points". You'll need a 'point pusher' to push them into the wood. Then the entire outdoor perimeter of the pane of glass (aka "light") is filled with glazing putty to the same profile depth as the inside wood. Traditional glazing putty is compatible with oil paint, its boiled linseed oil and clay, and it will harden slowly, no need to rush as you work. This tool for this job is a couple of putty knives and this job is what a "putty knife" is actually named for. Use at least a wide and a narrow knife. You start using the wide knife to hold some putty and the narrow knife to press lumps of putty in place around the light. You won't be able to get it all that smooth with the narrow knife, so when its filled to the correct depth use the wide knife to get a smooth putty perimeter. Its better to let the putty harden before painting, if its particularly slow then a couple weeks is enough. Oh, one other tip, you won't leave any finger dents from testing to see if the putty has hardened if you put some extra putty on a paint stick and test that instead of the window.
Hello, this a neutral curing silicone, thank you.
Hello, yes it can be used on polycarbonate panels, thank you!
This is not recommended for that use - thank you.
I have a smooth thin layer of GE-55 applied about 9 months ago to an outside window. It is still nearly colorless and nearly transparent.
