Pretty pricey though compared to tinting painters caulk. The contractor box comes with 6x 30ml syringe, 6x catalyst & 6x screw on tips. You need to shake them twice. Once after mixing in the paint then again after adding the catalyst. The Tube unscrews from the top where you add fluid, then you add a screw on tip when its ready. I found it helps to use the syringe to blow air into the tube first to create a cavity to add the fluids. I would say it takes 3-4 minutes per tube to mix, shake then rest for 30minutes.

Shelf life 1year after mixing.

You can use any clear caulk with a caulk mixing tool. pop the end cap off, scoop alittle out, add some of the paint, and mix it up. The problem is, clear caulk has a high sheen to it, so its very rare that I use mine.

We even mixed a metallic silver oil base into it and it mixes.

Yup it works fine until you have 30+ tubes to mix, then it becomes quite a workout. If you can mix them in 1/2 the time the sascho ones pay for themselves.


easy way to pull out the end of a clear tube is to squeeze right around the base where the end is to create a small gap between the tube then pinch with needle nose pliers & pull it out. Mix in 10ml of paint then use the tool for 1-2min until mixed. Use a paper clip to create a shim/air gap then push the end back into place. Works pretty well but a lot of manual work. I wouldn't attempt more than 3-5.

I bought the red devil caulk tint tool a bunch of years ago and used it a few times and it now sit on a shelve in my garage. It worked best with their caulk and with lighter colors. Worked but messy and kind of a pain to clean and not much of a time saver.
