SAVE ENERGY with White Lightning
while you Protect and Beautify Your Home

The White Lightning® family of caulks and sealants has been the choice of building industry professionals and do-it-yourselfers for nearly a century. With a product for every need, and every area of your home, you're sure to find a place to use White Lightning® products.

Caulking protects your home - inside and out - against damage caused by heat, water and weather conditions.

Outside: it helps protect areas around windows and vents where water can seep in to places you can't see.
Inside: caulking around bathtubs, showers, sinks and splashboards can prevent costly damage to floors and walls.

Beautify your home by applying a bead of caulk around moldings, baseboards and cabinetry to give your home a "finished" look. You can also use caulk to disguise and correct gaps and other irregularities.

Caulks and Sealants - What's the Difference?
Caulks are typically general purpose products that fill gaps between building materials. They have average adhesion, low expansion/contraction and can be specified for interior or exterior use. Sealants are high-performance products with good adhesive properties to stick to a broad range of substrates. They also recover well when stretched or compressed – as in temperature extremes – so they perform well outside.

Hints and Tips for getting the best results
from White Lightning Caulks and Sealants
Make sure that surface to be caulked is clean and dry.
Don't caulk outdoors when rain is expected.
For easiest application cut caulk tube nozzle to a 45° angle.
For best adhesion, be sure to "tool" caulk, using your finger, a disposable spoon or a damp rag for latex caulks.
For better energy savings, caulk windows & doors on the inside AND outside.
Check around your home's foundation where heat can escape and water can get in.
On a sunny day, cover windows, doors and other basement light sources to check for possible gaps and leaks in foundation.
For gaps deeper than 1/2" first fill them with backer rod up to 1/2" from the surface, then caulk.
To prevent caulk cracking around bathtubs, fill tub up to normal water level before caulking. Leave the tub filled until the caulk is cured.
Make sure that caulk is fully cured before using newly caulked tubs or showers.
