GE IronGrip silicone?

Im not sure if this has been asked anywhere else - has anyone used GE IronGrip silicone for large tanks?? I've been searching for GE1200 but nobody around me seems to carry it. I have found this product, however..

Look at Dow Corning silicones. They make the stuff Disney uses for there tanks. I use the DC 795.
Shear strength is the important thing for building tanks. IIRC GE 104 RTV was used.

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.
Quote me as saying I was misquoted.
Once you get rid of integrity the rest is a piece of cake.

If you agreed with me we'd both be right.
