Product Details

GE Silicone II Paintable Silicone Caulk offers a combination of silicones superior performance & the paintability of acrylic caulk. Water protection is critical in many caulking applications from windows and doors to kitchens and baths. Many times these jobs require a caulk that is paintable as well as waterproof. Paintable Silicone combines the superior adhesion and durability performance of 100% silicone with the paintability of acrylic. While acrylic may be paintable, it breaks down in water over time and can shrink and crack, leaving gaps for water and air to seep through. Those leaks can lead to water damage, mold growth or higher energy bills. Issues such as these can translate into wasted energy, money, and ultimately time, when the project has to be redone.

Q:Will this work with shellac-based primer like Zinsser BIN?
by|Nov 21, 2021
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for the question. Assuming you are using the GE Paintable Silicone All Projects Window and Door over the shellac-based primer we do not expect any issue if the primer is fully cured. However, testing for compatibility is highly recommended before using it in your project. Acrylic latex paints are typically recommended to be used prior to using a paintable silicone product. Shellac-based primers would not be recommended for use on top of the cured product.

            I applied this almost exactly 2 years ago around a dryer vent outside of my house. It has shrunk and pulled away from the vent, basically nullifying any kind of waterproofing properties. If it wasn't under the soffit of the house I'd really be in trouble. For such a disappointment at $8 plus a tube I would give it zero stars if I could!

              Quality meets Value
              Was really surprised to read the bad reviews of this product after having used it numerous times myself both at my own home and at the homes of different customers. The clean-up is not easy, but NOT ANY different than any other silicone caulk. So, just like with all other silicone caulking, make sure you have some mineral spirits handy, if you're not very careful or experienced. Over time - this product does seem to hold and resist cracking and peeling better than other popular among contractors indoor/outdoor high grade siliconised latex product. I only apply it on previously primed or even painted surfaces, so it's not hard to clean it up after applying (just don't cut too much off the tip and it will be fine). It should be painted or it will yellow, like most other paintable caulking products. If you don't plan on painting it - get the non-paintable stuff. I've never had any problems with paint not sticking to it, but I also do not use cheap paint either. In my experience paint sticks to it just fine, just make sure you wait at least 30 minutes before painting it. For me and my customers so far - great combination of durability, quality and value. Couple years after use - no signs of cracking or paint peeling. Oh, and even folks servicing Mount Rushmore now switched to silicone caulking to fill cracks in stone - due to it's durability.

              Very frustrated with this product. I have used many tubes of silicone caulk. This was advertised as paintable. It is absolutely not! The paint looks like oil floating on water. Latex paint beads up and peels off easily. I expect more from a company like GE. As a caulk it works fine. But it will not accept paint. It has made a mess out of my job and I'm pretty torqued off.

                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this product, used it on a new door which is wooden, it is easy to paint over, love the protection of silicone. The chalk was easy to apply and easy to work with and it dries fast.

                  Great product!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this caulking on a bathroom remodel that I did recently. I think it worked great and applied smoothly. Paint went over it and adhered nicely as well. I would definately buy this product again in the future. It will be hard for anyone to find a better all around caulk than this stuff.

                            Works Perfectly!
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We are renovating our Basement and have a couple projects where we needed a Paintable Silicone to use to seal some cracks. This worked great and dried quickly. I would highly recommend to a friend and use this product again.
