GE Silicone I* Tub & Tile


Caulk that keeps water out is a necessity in kitchen, bathroom, and plumbing applications. Silicone I* Tub & Tile caulk is permanently waterproof and it will not shrink, crack, or crumble over time like acrylic. Silicone chemically cures while acrylic is water-based (it simply dries as water escapes). Some acrylics can shrink up to 25 percent, leaving gaps and cracks for water to seep through. Those leaks can lead to water damage and mold growth.

TYPICAL USES: Showers, tubs, sinks, tile, countertops, and fixtures

ADHERES TO: Most ceramic tile, laminate, porcelain, glass, metal, plastic, granite, and wood

100% silicone


Unlike acrylic, silicone is permanently:
  • Waterproof—Acrylic breaks down in water over time.
  • Flexible—Acrylic becomes less flexible and can even freeze at low temperatures, making it more likely to crack.
  • Shrink-proof—Acrylic shrinks as the caulk dries. This shrinking can cause cracks over time.
  • Crack-proof—Acrylic hardens, cracks, and crumbles over time when exposed to extreme heat and the sun's UV rays.

Don't Waste Time and Energy

Not all caulk is the same. Because silicone is permanently waterproof, flexible, and shrink-/crack-proof, unlike acrylic, it won't leave gaps or cracks for air and water to seep through over time. Those leaks can lead to water damage, mold growth, and higher energy bills—all of which can translate into your lost time (when you have to do the job again), lost energy, and lost money.
