100% RTV silicone sealant is a completely pure product where extended silicone sealant is diluted. All rubber that cures at room temperature is considered RTV, but not all RTV is created equal. These oils and solvents affect the performance of the sealant.
Silicone sealants are in fact waterproof. Since they are waterproof, they can also be used to repair cracks in many different types of outdoor surfaces or in various kitchen, bathroom and home sealing applications.
The Best Bathroom Sealant
The key difference between RTV and silicone is that RTV is a general term for room temperature vulcanizing silicone, whereas silicone is a polymer material having repeating units of siloxane. However, normal silicone is a low-cost product, so many people use silicone over RTV.
After years of exposure to water and humidity, clear silicone can begin to yellow and blacken. This discoloration is caused by exposure to rust and the formation of mold. Removing the yellow from clear silicone can be accomplished at home without the need for expensive cleaning products.
