Comments about CHG Red High Temperature Food Grade Silicone Caulk:
I wanted to seal off some rough edges on a kettle insert. This product is exactly what I needed to do the job, but was supplied without any kind of nozzle. The tube has a blunt screw end on it to accept a nozzle, but one was not supplied even though the pictures on the website show an applicator tip.

Q:Wondered why the red is more expensive than the black or white. What's the difference?
A:The red is a high temp sealant that can suffice up to ~400 degrees F; whereas the other 2 products have a typo within the temperature range, which should state up to ~350 degrees F.
Q:It is it safe to seal the glass lid of a portable stovetop oven
A:I see no reason why this wouldn't work for your application. This silicon is rated for heat up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. As long as the oven stays below 400 degrees I think you should be fine.
Q:Could I use this product to seal/coat the inside of an aluminum coffee maker.
A:Yes, you should be able to use it, no problems! It's made to seal/bond stainless steel and other metal types, as well as, glass, plastic, and rubber. And because it's waterproof, it should be perfect for the inside of the coffee maker.
Q:Answer for leaky spring-form pans?
A:The only difference is the color of the caulk. They are all effective up to 400°F.
Q:The inside glass on my oven door has cracked, but not broken apart. Can I use this food grade silicone sealant on that crack to seal the glass?
A:Hi KR. Thanks for getting in touch with Tundra Restaurant Supply with your question.
Q:bonding galvanized steel and wood
A:Hi Larry, I have some information directly from the caulk container that should address your concerns. The M90-1018 will work as a sealant. The directions are as follow:
Q:Conflicting advice on using this product with water that will be consumed.
A:Hi Steve. Thanks for contacting Tundra Restaurant Supply with your question and your concerns regarding our conflicting answers.
Q:Is it good for galvanize
A:Our technicians would not recommend using the CHG M90-1018 High Temperature Food Grade Silicone Caulk to patch galvanized piping/metal. I asked what could be used to patch something that has been galvanized and was told the best course of action would be to replace the piece you're wanting to repair.
Q:sealing a smoker.
A:I wouldn't really recommend it. Though it says this product is rated up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, I wouldn't trust it around food I was eating. As far as creating a gasket is concerned, caulk is more effective at fill a seam between two perpendicular surfaces (think a floor and a wall), rather than creating a free standing "gasket." The way the caulk comes out, it probably wouldn't be a uniform strip and wouldn't seal up right. I would NOT recommend this product for your application.
Q:Is this safe for use in a commercial fryer and is there a special cleaning agent before use?
A:The Red High Temperature Food Grade Silicone is specifically meant to be used in high temperatures, so there shouldn't be a problem with using it in your commercial fryer. However, there are a variety of safety stipulations regarding use of this product. These can be found under the "Learn More" tab on the product page. Please read through the MSDS stipulations before making your decision.
