Typically, replacing damaged, unsightly silicone sealant is a time-consuming process that requires completely removing the old sealant. To avoid the hassle of scraping away sealant, don’t re-do it—just Re-New it! Made by America’s #1 Silicone Brand,† GE Re-New is a specialty silicone product that lets you refresh 100% silicone seals in half the time it would take to replace them.1
For lasting 100% waterproof results, first make sure GE Re-New is right for your sealing project. There are only two rules to remember when it comes to using Re-New:
- Silicone, Silicone, Silicone! GE Re-New should only be applied on top of 100% silicone sealant or it may not adhere properly, leaving your seals at risk for peeling and leaks.GE Re-New is NOT for use on polyethylene, polypropylene, polytetrafluorethylene, acrylic, FRP, vinyl surfaces, mirrors or natural stone.Typically, seals that are constantly exposed to water, such as kitchen and bathroom sinks, counters, tubs and showers are made with a 100% silicone sealant. If the seal has been painted (like those around a baseboard), then it was likely made with a hybrid or acrylic sealant and is not suitable for Re-New. Be certain that a seal is 100% silicone before you apply Re-New.
- Not a Standalone Product. Re-New is not a standalone product, meaning it can’t be used by itself to create a seal. It’s uniquely formulated to refresh your aging sealant for lasting, like-new seals. Always use Re-New on top of existing 100% silicone seals.
With these two tips in mind, you’re ready to repair your old kitchen and bathroom seals so they’re beautiful and 100% waterproof again. Learn how to apply GE Re-New in three easy steps and make your silicone like new.
