of course - GE silicone has been around since 1965. I used it on my first home back in 1968 and now it is paintable. It still is not the do all product however.
read all the reasons GE states about the product. affected by various solvents and chemicals and surface adhesion is generally poor.
Frequently Asked Questions About Products, Applications, Troubleshooting, and More
here are a few reason never to use the product on the MH or Boat.
Can I apply new silicone on old silicone?
For the best adhesion, we recommend removing the old silicone. New silicone will bond to old silicone, but the bond is not as strong as if it is adhered to a clean surface. If you choose to apply over old silicone, the warranty is void.
Some materials, such as concrete, soft woods, stone, specially treated metals, plastics, or other man-made materials, might have unpredictable surface characteristics. Therefore, we recommend that you test for adhesion by applying the caulk
Do not use silicone caulk on any galvanized surface. Do not use below the water level. Cleaning with detergent or soap and water is not recommended because silicone will not adhere to surfaces with any soap scum present.
Yes; caulk differs in formulation and intended use. Its physical properties, including adhesion, flexibility, color, opacity, finish, elasticity, and durability vary significantly so it's important to select the right product for each job.
Specialty: For a project that is beyond a typical home caulking application, or will be used in conjunction with another caulking product, or when caulk isn't appropriate for the job, a specialty product might be needed.
Those reason and many more is the reason I do not use Silicone products for sealing.
Since I have used well over 15 different types of sealants - some good some poor - I am well aware of Silicon products and only use them like they recommend - "Kitchen and Bath" sealants.
