This sealant will work well to keep a gasket in place. If you do not have a gasket I have added several bulb gaskets below that may work with your smoker.

Question

Is this garenteed 100% food grade

Looking to use this as a seal around the lid of a still, or hot water urn. I just want to make sure it is 100% food grade as it will be under high, moist pressure & the resulting liquid will be consumed.
Thanks

The Red High Temperature Food Grade Silicone is specifically meant to be used in high temperatures, so there shouldn't be a problem with using it in your commercial fryer. However, there are a variety of safety stipulations regarding use of this product. These can be found under the "Learn More" tab on the product page. Please read through the MSDS stipulations before making your decision.

To answer your second question, the Red High Temperature Food Grade Silicone does not require a special cleaning agent before use.

Question

sealing a smoker.

Does this product create a gasket? Can I draw a bead along the edge of my smoker's firebox door and after it sets close the the door and create a good seal? If so , with heat, will it create vapors that would affect the safety of the food being smoked?

I wouldn't really recommend it. Though it says this product is rated up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, I wouldn't trust it around food I was eating. As far as creating a gasket is concerned, caulk is more effective at fill a seam between two perpendicular surfaces (think a floor and a wall), rather than creating a free standing "gasket." The way the caulk comes out, it probably wouldn't be a uniform strip and wouldn't seal up right. I would NOT recommend this product for your application.

Our technicians would not recommend using the CHG M90-1018 High Temperature Food Grade Silicone Caulk to patch galvanized piping/metal. I asked what could be used to patch something that has been galvanized and was told the best course of action would be to replace the piece you're wanting to repair.

Thanks for contacting Tundra Restaurant Supply. I apologize for not being able to provide a quick fix for your repair.

Question

bonding galvanized steel and wood

I would like to use this product to bond galvanized steel sheeting to plywood. The metal will be used to line the inside of a smoker with anticipated temperatures up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally I would like to use it to seal the corners in case of spills.

Will this product bond as well as seal in the above application?

Thanks

Hi Larry, I have some information directly from the caulk container that should address your concerns. The M90-1018 will work as a sealant. The directions are as follow:
1) Surfaces to seal should be clean and dry
2) Cut nozzle to desired joint width
3) Seal joint and tool surfaces immediately as sealant will skin in 15 minutes.
4) Allow vapor to escape - Acetic acid vapors from cure could cause surface corrosion on copper and steel.

I was also able to talk with manufacturer and get a more detailed spec sheet which will be attached to the product on the "Learn More" tab.

Hi KR. Thanks for getting in touch with Tundra Restaurant Supply with your question.

The CHG M90-1018 Food Grade Silicone Caulk will indeed work to seal your cracked oven door. That said, the caulk has a maximum temperature rating of 400° F, so keep that in mind.

Question

Answer for leaky spring-form pans?

I'm tired of my baked goods leaking out around the bottom of the pans, and was hoping to use a thin, even coating of this in the channel to create a working gasket instead of the bare metal/glass on metal contact which is very inadequate in keeping water out and thin batter in. I'm assuming from all I've read that food contact is acceptable, but what is the difference with the Red's "High Temps" from the other's when all versions of M-90 seem to have the same upper range of 400F?

The only difference is the color of the caulk. They are all effective up to 400°F.

Could I use this product to seal/coat the inside of an aluminum coffee maker.

I have a Pezzetti stove top espresso brewer. I didn't realize it was made of aluminum and I have concerns about daily exposure to it since I will be brewing coffee in it. Could I use this product to coat/seal the interior of the brewing chambers?

Yes, you should be able to use it, no problems! It's made to seal/bond stainless steel and other metal types, as well as, glass, plastic, and rubber. And because it's waterproof, it should be perfect for the inside of the coffee maker.

Question

It is it safe to seal the glass lid of a portable stovetop oven

It is a Coocan Stovetop Oven which is kind of convection oven that circulates the heat and higher heat efficiency thus ensures no smoke and smell escapes from its lid. However, heat/smoke comes out of the lid between the glass and metal which deteriorates the heat efficiency and affects the cooking process.

I see no reason why this wouldn't work for your application. This silicon is rated for heat up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. As long as the oven stays below 400 degrees I think you should be fine.
