FDA food grade caulk is a food safe sealant that comes in a variety of colors: clear, aluminum, white, black and red. This sealant’s primary purpose is to keep moisture out of unwanted places, and since it doesn’t cause food borne illnesses when it comes in contact with food and drinks, it’s the preferred caulk for kitchen and restaurant appliance repair, including sinks, ice machines and stainless steel walls.
The different colors of FDA food sealant help with different types of repairs:
- When sealing an ice machine or ice dispenser we recommend using the FDA Food Sealer in Clear. Sealing around the entire ice machine base will ensure no liquid will leak out and possibly collect in unwanted areas.
- White and Black fit in standard caulking guns and are able to stand-up to a wide range of temperatures: -85º to 400º F.
- Stainless steel is a popular building material in residential and commercial applications. The Aluminum Colored FDA Food Grade Caulk is the perfect solution for patching nail holes, gaps or cracks in stainless steel appliances.
- If your application requires sealing an area where there will be high temperatures, we recommend using the Red FDA Silicone Caulk. The Red Silicone Sealant can withstand a max temperature of 400º F and will fit in most standard caulking guns.
FDA food caulk is NSF listed and U.L. recognized making it safe to use around all food operations. Food safety in restaurants is taken very seriously by health inspectors and the FDA – using the right tools for the right applications will keep your restaurant in good standing.
