The tubes I have say it is paintable. We will find out soon as I have a little project I used some from (rather than it going to waste) a leftover tube, and will be doing a camo paint job on.
I found on more than one occasion that once opened, a tube of proflex doesn't have a long shelf life (even with the top plugged)
That is why I started looking for things to use it on very quickly. I opened it on 4/28. So far I caulked some stuff on the trailer (4/28), caulked some stuff on the bird house my son made (4/29, 5/6, and 5/7), and caulked stuff on my homemade parellel kit for the Hondas I am reworking to reduce space and weight (5/11, 5/12, 5/13, and 5/14). I still have half the tube left. It is clear. Anybody in my area need to put some clear ProFlex RV on something?
I have used Dicor and ProFlex and both are excellent products but with my limited DIY skills, found them very difficult to work with. I just spent several weeks researching sealants just for fun. Even talked to a couple of RV manufactureres about sealants. The one thing that remained consistent was the recommendation of a urethane/polyurethane product not a silicone.
In my search I found some products made by Tremco. The sealants are called Trempro. I decided to try the Trempro 626. I selected it for several reasons including its use for continuous immersion in water (I live in the Pacific Northwet)and because it comes in several colors. I am in the process of resealing my entire rig...its about half done.
The upside is the sealant is very easy to work, color matches our rig, and it is relatively inexpensive for a quality sealant ($7.95) at Fastenal Stores. The downside is it takes forever to dry and is not readily available...could only find at Fastenal stores and they had to order it. It is a textured sealant meaning when dry it looks similar to brick mortor rather than a smooth sheen like silicone. Doesn't bother me or look bad on the rig.
Just throwing it out as an option!

Has anyone painted over either Geocel or Proflex caulk? I have four tubes of Geocel in hand and have just spent two days removing previously applied sealants on ALL the joints on my rig. I am about to prime and paint the whole trailer so I need to know how the caulk accepts paint. I can put it on post-paint but the right way would be to get it on first and then put on the finish paint.
