I wanted something harder than rubbery silicone caulk for my bathtub surround and between the tub and floor. An article that I found on the web recommended silicone-free acrylic latex caulk and mentioned Polyseamseal Tub & Tile Caulk as an example. So far so good, after a month or so, although at first--following the 24-hour curing time--a few little surface bits came off when wiping down the caulk after a shower. I suspect this was due to poor application technique--e.g., not smoothing out the caulk soon enough with a wet finger after applying. Giving the surface a thorough cleaning before caulking is also a must to ensure a good seal. Use a cleanser first, then wipe down with denatured alcohol. Don't use rubbing alcohol! All told, it looks great, no more bits, and it seems to have cured even harder over the week following application.
