not anticipated. These caulks are flexible enough to adapt to minor
fluctuations in the substrate, stretching in gaps that widen slightly over

including wood, ceramic tile, concrete, glass, plaster, bare aluminum, brick
and plastic even in areas where moisture is present.
Note: Pure silicone caulk should not be painted.
