Answer: 
It does have a gloss to it, more noticable on some surfaces then others. For example: using this product on a flat black surface will show very glossy verses using on a flat white surface.

Answer: 
I just applied it, and I can verify that it's shiny. It looks like silicon once cured. I don't know if there is a way to give it a matte finish and still be clear.

Answer: 
Clear caulk, if not covered with paint, will accumulate dirt and dust, getting progressively darker. The initial finish is shiny at some viewing angles--depends on the lighting. Once painted the finish depends on the paint used.

Answer: 
Painting over this product can almost be done directly afterwords, it will only slow down the curing process. Usually you want to wait 72 hours but when time is crucial you can paint as soon as it is dry to the touch. AGAIN this will slow down the overall dry time of both products.

Answer: 
During application, the product has a very low odor (faint acrylic latex odor, similar to latex paint). The majority of the volatile component is water vapor. Typical applications are dry and virtually odor free in 24 hours, longer dry times can result from thicker applications, lower temperature and/or higher humidity.

Alex Plus 10.1 oz. Clear Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone(12-Pack) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed For my Applicarion I was on a ladder caulking a thin gap on 1/4 round trim. I'm experienced at this task but this product behaved poorly. The caulk consistency was similar to toothpaste & it had little to no "sticking" qualities. So when putting down a long bead it tended to fall off, unless the bead was stuck securely into a larger gap - especially on the top of the 1/4 round that met the soffit. Splat! Gravity is the nemisis of this product. Otherwise, the product is fine. Easy to smooth a bead, it dries quickly and seems as if it will be quite durable Think twice about buying for tricky vertical applications & use something with better "stick".

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Several of the tubes were not clear. After using several tubes in customer homes I recieved calls... Several of the tubes were not clear. After using several tubes in customer homes I recieved calls that the caulk was not drying clear. I had to cut the white caulk out and reapply other tubes. I was forced to test run tubes of caulk to verify they dried clear. I estimate 4 out of 12 tubes were actually white not clear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very confusing packaging. Wanted white paintable Be very very careful when selecting which box. It may be fine for painting but it is not as prominent as on the white. I have not used it. I can't say if it is good or bad. I used 3 cases of white and that seems ok.
