Answer: 
No. For places near water (bath/tub/sink) you need to use a quality Silicone caulking. They generally are marked for tub/shower on the packaging. Note that unlike the Alex Plus a Silicone caulk will not clean up with water. To remove the caulking from your fingers and finish cleaning use a solvent. Good luck.

Answer: 
Good question, sometimes leaving it bare blends in better, but painting over the caulk would won't hurt, I would test in a small area just too see how it looks.

Answer: 
For planning purposes, 24 hours should be considered a minimum dry time before the product is exposed to moisture. Factors such as lower temperatures, higher humidity and bead size can add to this minimum dry time.

Answer: 
DAP® ALEX PLUS® Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone is designed to be applied "as is" and can also be painted if desired. For application where painting is desired, allow to dry 2 hours (longer in cool/humid conditions) before painting with latex or oil-based paints.

Hi Patricia, yes this caulk is paintable and yes it will hold a coat of paint after it is applied to a surface.
Run your mouse over the image of the product on the web page, there you will see the side of the tube that tells you it's paintable. Enjoy.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No task to big or small this was my first time using this, so let picture tell the story February 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff is garbage We used this caulk on our woodwork before painting everything white. The coverage seemed good at first, but a year later, it's cracked in many places and we need to re-caulk. Wish we would have used a better quality product! May 28, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cracks quickly I used this to seal gaps between some trim work, let it sit a week before painting. The next day after painting it cracked. September 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product easy to use, and does not dry out quickly, i like using a silicone based caulking. March 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Purchase The adhesive works great. Thank you for your wonderful customer service. March 3, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Low cost and easy to apply, but poor flexibility Easy to apply, water cleanup. Commonly used by the DIYer. However note that the joint movement allowance specified on the DAP website for this product is only +/- 12.5% . If your application experiences temperature and humidity swings, it will most likely crack (it has happened to me on numerous window area joints). For a high flexibility use an elastomeric caulk, which advertise over +/- 25% joint movement. The consumer grade would be DAP Dynaflex 230. There are also other professional grade caulks that are better (e.g. Tower Tech 2 or Big Stretch). So in summary, this stuff is only acceptable for interior joints with a constant temperature and humidity. But for just a few more bucks per tube you can use a professional grade caulking. March 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by READ THE CURE TIME! The cure time is 168 hours! That means this product must not get wet for at least 168 hours if it is to adhere properly. With this in mind we can see that one must remember to keep this stuff dry for the entire cure time if it is to last for 35 years. Do not use this product in bathrooms or kitchens unless paint will be covering it. For unpainted applications you must use a silicon caulk like GE Silicon II. Latex doesn't last long if it gets wet. The only reason for using latex caulk is that paint will stick to it. Paint does not stick to Silicon. January 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product Good quality , matches the satin white from val-spar . October 21, 2014
