That is, until lately, when i did a replacement on a vanity, sinks, and countertop. I applied the caulk as normal, but it NEVER HARDENED!
The client was very dissatisfied, although it was beyond my control, and i had to spend a half day cleaning out all the old caulk, and re-caulking it with a competing brand.
I did write to GE who told me it was "Normal" for it not to harden if it was close to its expiration date (this had a month left) and basically told me they had no interest in backing up their faulty product.
Will I buy it again? NO.
If an alcoxy base silicone sealer sits for longer than a few months (I don't care what the date says!), it doesn't change its viscosity, but also it will NEVER CURE. Not only that, it leaves an unbelievable mess behind that needs to be thoroughly cleaned (and I mean THOROUGHLY cleaned) surface for anything else to work properly. That's the hard part.
There is a 'fresh date' on the side, they say a year. Don't believe it. I had a well-within 'fresh date' (6 months to go!) tube and used it to plug some holes in a flowerpot (yes it SHOULD work, and this is the stuff to do it), but it just sat there all goopy. I just threw out the pot. And spent an hour washing the stuff off my hands after touching it. Yikes! That's when I went off and did my research.
Look for an 'acetoxy' cure silicone type product if it is going to sit around for a while between uses, because you know when it is beyond its fresh date. It turns as hard as cement in the tube. Better that than the stuff that masquerades as OK, but will turn your life into a gluey mess!
Sorry GE, perhaps you 'bring good things to lite/life' or however that saying goes, for some of your products, but not this stuff, at least not for us homeowner types.
So I am sure the stuff is wonderful (and it has been in the past, for me), if you get it fresh. 5 stars in fact. However, if it isn't fresh.. -20 stars. I mean that too. But you still only get 2 stars. Please note that I am the ONLY reviewer that gave you more than 1 star. CHANGE YOUR PACKAGING!!!! PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW!!!
It was an unopened tube with expiration date 8 months away.
This is a HUGE problem since I spent
hours and hours prepping and now have to repeat much of that time removing the
sticky GE caulk and reapplying a different brand. I always test out
expired caulk before using but didn't think I needed to in this case.
I will now always do a test bead a few days before usage to confirm that
product is good.
I bought this sealant for my bathroom, and on a whim yesterday - apparently feeling my plate wasn't full enough - I masterfully applied this gooey nightmare around the upper edge of the tile in the standing shower of our rented house. I was right proud of myself, having never caulked anything before. It actually looked pretty professional. Until I came back a few hours later to find it as gooey as it was when I had applied it.
And then a few hours later I looked in on it again and it still hadn't set, and was really sticky to the touch. At the 24 hour mark I knew something was really wrong, I began to wonder what they really meant about the claim that it 'remains flexible for 50 years.'
Google GE silicone sealant, and you'll find a wealth of information on this GE-specific phenomena of caulk not setting. Not after 2 hours, not after 24, never. Though some people offer that they've waited weeks to no avail. The caulk does, they say, become more difficult to remove the longer it sits. Sometimes this happens because it's past the expiration date, other times it's apparently because someone forgot to remove a recalled batch of 'special formula' that regardless of the date on the tube, will never set!
Excuse me while I laugh maniacally, and slam my head against the wall.
Ok, that's better.
GE is apparently kind enough to offer you a free tube if you're one of the unfortunate, but apparently they have nothing to offer in the way of getting that 8 hours of your life back that you spent applying and removing this insane nightmarish sticky, snot-like, messy goo from your bathroom tile and wall. Their claim that it 'Adheres to all common bathroom surfaces' is spot on.Read more ›
