All Purpose Adhesive Caulk (AC-138)

Formulated to bond like an adhesive and seal like a caulk, AC-138 is effective for more than typical bathroom caulking projects (although it is a favorite for bathroom caulking). This high-performance, paintable acrylic adhesive caulk has silicone added for superior adhesion and flexibility. It provides a mildew-resistant seal and resists dirt and dust.
