Type 1 - standard silicone that is dexterous and transparent
- window sills
- door sills
- metal brackets on walls
- glass panels
- cracks around corners of room
- crevices around the washroom area
Type 2 - black silicone that will challenge you in every way
Type 3 - white, caulk-like silicone that is positioned midway...most balancedThis is the most balanced type of silicone sealant, not too flowy or too thick. The consistency is just about perfect, and this is perhaps why it is recommended as a caulk-like silicone too. White silicone is not really that sticky. It binds well but won't hold properly unless it is caved within surrounding surfaces. This makes it the ideal cavity filler. The better option if you are working in places like bathrooms that need more white lines rather than any type of dark shades that can make the place look ugly. I have used white caulk for cavity filling in walls surrounding kitchen cabinets and visually, this is perhaps the most aesthetically perfect form of silicone sealants and fillers.
One thing more about silicone filler compounds:
- Some are sold as being neutral while others say acidic curing
- This refers to the curing process
- Acetic acid is found in silicone compounds that cure acidic
- This creates an odor that is really not a big problem unless you are allergic like me
- If this bothers you, try "neutral curing silicone" - as easily available and just a few more bucks!
