Silicon was applied to a bathtub (very thick).


I am interested to apply additional caulk over the silicon without removing existing silicon. Which caulking material can I use?

Charles, you're going to be much better off removing the silicone first as it's going to be difficult to get anything to adhere on top of it and create any sort of worthwhile seal. A picture of the area in question would be very helpful.

Quite so, ALL silicone must be removed before applying any type of caulk. Silicone won't adhere to itself.
