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?
    Asked on 3/5/2015 by Doug from 29356

      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.

      The other notable difference is the color (red, black, or white).

  • Q:

    It is it safe to seal the glass lid of a portable stovetop oven

    It is a Coocan Stovetop Oven which is kind of convection oven that circulates the heat and higher heat efficiency thus ensures no smoke and smell escapes from its lid. However, heat/smoke comes out of the lid between the glass and metal which deteriorates the heat efficiency and affects the cooking process.

    • 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.

    I have a Pezzetti stove top espresso brewer. I didn't realize it was made of aluminum and I have concerns about daily exposure to it since I will be brewing coffee in it. Could I use this product to coat/seal the interior of the brewing chambers?

    1 answer

    • 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?

    I'm tired of my baked goods leaking out around the bottom of the pans, and was hoping to use a thin, even coating of this in the channel to create a working gasket instead of the bare metal/glass on metal contact which is very inadequate in keeping water out and thin batter in. I'm assuming from all I've read that food contact is acceptable, but what is the difference with the Red's "High Temps" from the other's when all versions of M-90 seem to have the same upper range of 400F?

    • 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?
    Asked on 2/24/2013 by KR from Canada

    1 answer

    • A:

      Hi KR. Thanks for getting in touch with Tundra Restaurant Supply with your question.

      The CHG M90-1018 Food Grade Silicone Caulk will indeed work to seal your cracked oven door. That said, the caulk has a maximum temperature rating of 400° F, so keep that in mind.

  • Q:

    bonding galvanized steel and wood

    I would like to use this product to bond galvanized steel sheeting to plywood. The metal will be used to line the inside of a smoker with anticipated temperatures up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally I would like to use it to seal the corners in case of spills.

    Will this product bond as well as seal in the above application?

    Asked on 2/16/2013 by Larry from WNC

    1 answer

    • 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:
      1) Surfaces to seal should be clean and dry
      2) Cut nozzle to desired joint width
      3) Seal joint and tool surfaces immediately as sealant will skin in 15 minutes.
      4) Allow vapor to escape - Acetic acid vapors from cure could cause surface corrosion on copper and steel.

      I was also able to talk with manufacturer and get a more detailed spec sheet which will be attached to the product on the "Learn More" tab.

  • Q:

    Conflicting advice on using this product with water that will be consumed.

    I would like to use this product to repair a camp coffee maker. I am patching a leak in the bottom of the tank. The water that will come into contact with this product will be consumed. The previous question regarding an urn answered by Molly tells me this is OK to use. However, the sealing a smoker question was answered "I wouldn't trust it around food I was eating" - by an Anonymous Staff Expert.

    Which is correct? Is this product safe to be used to seal up a camp coffeemaker that will sit on a propane stove brewing for 3 hours at a time?

      Hi Steve. Thanks for contacting Tundra Restaurant Supply with your question and your concerns regarding our conflicting answers.

      Unfortunately, the "I wouldn't trust it around food I was eating" response is incorrect and confusing to our customers. The CHG M90-1018 High Temperature Food Grade Silicone Caulk can absolutely be used to repair your coffee maker, and you need not fear regarding the safety of your machine after use.

      I apologize for the confusion and hope I've cleared up your concerns.

  • Q:

    Is it good for galvanize

    There are some small holes in my piece of galvanize, but they are very small holes as a pinhead.
    Asked on 1/18/2013 by Anonymous

    • 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.

      Thanks for contacting Tundra Restaurant Supply. I apologize for not being able to provide a quick fix for your repair.

  • Q:

    sealing a smoker.

    Does this product create a gasket? Can I draw a bead along the edge of my smoker's firebox door and after it sets close the the door and create a good seal? If so , with heat, will it create vapors that would affect the safety of the food being smoked?
    Asked on 12/12/2012 by Parman from Baldwin Park, Ca

    1 answer

    • 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?
    Asked on 9/23/2011 by Dave from Mooresville

    1 answer

    • 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.

      To answer your second question, the Red High Temperature Food Grade Silicone does not require a special cleaning agent before use.
