Do you sometimes have aquarium projects where you don’t really need a whole tube of caulk? GE Caulk singles are going to try and fix all that. Available Late June 2008 these guys sure do look like they can help you out with your sump build or aquarium leak. We haven’t confirmed if any contain anti-bacterial additives which is a big no-no for caulk sealing but we are pretty confident at least one out of the three above should be able to seal up your aquarium or sump. Hit the read link for the full press release.
Huntersville, NC (May 1, 2008) â€” Beautifying and maintaining your home with caulk is now as convenient as changing a light bulb. Momentive Performance Materialsâ€™ latest innovation, GE Caulk Singles, single-use disposable packages of caulk, reinvent the caulking experience for the consumer by putting an end to caulk guns and hard-to-use squeeze tubes. With its deceptively simple, yet ingeniously engineered packaging, Caulk Singles dispense effortlessly with one hand, require no tools, and leave essentially no waste in the package. With Caulk Singles, caulking becomes an effortless, quick fix instead of a weekend-long, messy task. Refresh the bathroom or kitchen in minutes by sprucing up tubs and sinks for a clean appearance. Caulk around crown molding and baseboards before painting to attain that professional look. Beautifying the home is finally that quick and simple â€“ hardly any know-how, tools, or time required.
The secret lies in the productâ€™s innovative and deceptively simple, yet highly engineered new packaging. Caulk Singles use geometric bellows and other hidden mechanisms to do the following:
- Make it easier to dispense the caulk with one hand, eliminating the need for a caulk gun or excess tools
- Eliminate or reduce unnecessary waste by evenly dispensing the caulk from the back to the front of the package
- Help create an even, neat bead of caulk despite changes in pressure, minimizing the clean-up and dry time
“Caulk Singles will do for caulk what the bleach pen and disposable razor did for busy people on the go,â€ said Rodney Hawkins, General Manager of Momentive Performance Materials, an exclusive licensee of General Electric. â€œBy reinventing and simplifying the consumerâ€™s experience with caulk, Caulk Singles enable todayâ€™s busy homeowner to beautify their home with just a tear, squeeze and toss. Homeowners can now squeeze a little beauty into their day between running errands, running to work, and picking up the kids.”
With no instruction, experience, or additional tools required, Caulk Singles make it possible for anyone to get that professionally painted look or refreshed feel in any room of their home. And, its small size means that it can be tossed into the kitchen drawer or toolbox, along with other household necessities such as duct tape, light bulbs and screwdrivers.
Caulk Singles will be available at Loweâ€™s Home Improvement stores, Ace Hardware, and True Value in June 2008. It will be sold in 1.25 ounce packages, available in white paintable acrylic or white or clear waterproof silicone [with a SRP of $1.99 to $2.99 per pack]. Deliberately packaged for a one-time use, it minimizes waste and storage by allowing the consumer to purchase just enough to complete the job at hand. Estimated usage includes:
- One pack for small jobs (sinks, fixtures, touch-ups)
- Two packs for medium jobs (bathtub, window)
- Three packs for large jobs (large window, door)
