Because silicone is greasy, you cannot paint silicone, and therefore also silicone sealant, with a good result. When you paint silicone in the normal way you will see that you get so-called “fish eyes”. You also get this in paintwork, for example, when you have not degreased properly before sanding and painting.

To be able to paint silicone, you can put an anti-silicone liquid through the paint. With the right dosage (7 drops per 100ml of paint) you will be able to paint silicone sealant effortlessly with a tight result!
