Caulk gun sealant selection: Types and uses
Typical caulk used with caulking guns includes silicone, polyurethane, polysulfide, or acrylic sealants. Caulk comes in many blends, colors, and dispensing processes, but generally speaking, there are three varieties: latex, silicone, and butyl rubber.
For a silicone sealant that’s designed for use in bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas with lots of moisture, try Loctite Polyseamseal 100% Silicone Sealant. Load it into your caulking gun and apply it to create seals that are resistant to temperature, water, UV radiation, and other environmental factors.
Each type of caulk has its particular strengths. Latex tends to work best for dry areas, while silicone is a better choice for areas exposed to water and other moisture. Latex and silicone are best suited for interior home repairs, but butyl rubber is probably better for exterior work.
If you want a sealant that can do it all, try Loctite PL Heavy Duty Sealant. It can be used in all conditions and provides superior strength. It is formulated with a stretch that is 5 times that of other sealants. It is great for interior and exterior uses, including tubs and showers, fixtures, sinks, tile, trim, and baseboards.
