Dicor 501 and 502 Sealant

Does anyone know the difference between Dicor 501 and Dicor 502 sealants? I think 501 is made for vertical sealing and 502 is for horizontal, but am not sure.

Per an email from Dicor, the 502 is the same but is intended for machine dispensing. Manufacturers use it I guess.
They said I could use either one for my satellite dish.

The email reply:
"The 501LSW was developed to be used at the consumer level. The 502LSW was developed to be used in a pumping system at the manufacturing level. Very little difference with the exception of case quantity.

Any or all of Dicor’s lap sealants will work for your application depending on whether you need a self leveling or non-leveling lap sealant.

The tubes of Self-leveling Dicor (for horizontal surfaces) are labeled "501" and the Non-sag (for vertical surfaces) are labeled "551."

This is good stuff. I use the 501 for roof top applications and love it.
