Because it won't stick it will crack and it will leak. There are tons of products out there better than Dicor. They just have the best marketing campaign.
Check what your manufacture uses, and if it's silicon base, there is a reason why they go that route, and do the same.
Take your time, wait for the right product, spend the extra if you need to, seal it right the first time or you will will find leaks, after it is too late and the damage is done.
