Is silicone glue the same as silicone sealant?
Silicone sealant is a liquid form of adhesive. It has a different chemical make-up from other organic polymer-based adhesives. Unlike other adhesives, silicone keeps its elasticity and stability in both high and low temperatures. Furthermore, silicone sealant is resistant to other chemicals, moisture, and weathering. via
Can you do 2 layers of silicone?
Craig also recommends applying two layers of silicone. After this first application, run the edge of your finger around the applied sealant to ensure the silicone is pressed fully into the gap. The second layer can follow on quickly from the first. via
