Answer: 
Around 1984 Advanced acrylic latex technology was being establish.
"DAP traces its roots back to 1865, when Robert H. Dicks and Elmer Wiggim began producing sealing wax for food-canning out of Dicks' garage in Dayton, Ohio. In those days before refrigeration and commercially prepared foods, canning was a widespread practice, and demand for their product was high."

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.

Alex Plus 10.1 oz. White Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alex Plus is my first choice Alex Plus has been my first choice all-purpose caulk for decades, first in New Jersey where rain and humidity where the primary exterior challenges, and now in north-central Nebraska where temperature extremes and intense sun are the challenges. I consistently get excellent results. My first and most often repeated lesson as an apprentice was, "Understand your medium." Wood moves. Some species more than others. Some environmental conditions cause more movement than others. That's the basic understanding the wood medium part. Caulks dry differently, adhere differently, and harden or remain flexible differently. As long as one understands and selects the right medium for the job, and matches media that are complementary, there will be success. But when one attempts to bind up a board and batten wall with caulk, for instance, product failure and dissatisfaction are bound to follow. The board and batten system was designed to accommodate the movement of the wide boards, so let them move, or find a caulk that cures with the elasticity of a glob of chewing gum on hot pavement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excitement to frustration. I was excited to get this product for sealing around my exterior home; window, trim, etc. Excellent flexibility (I need that for cedar siding!), adheres to wide range of surfaces, shrinks less (in my opinion it shouldn't shrink at all), waterproof (oh, a must --- I live in the Pacific NW!), etc. What could be wrong about this product? Oh, joy! Grinch time --- there it is in small print in 2 different sections; "Caulk ...dries clear in 7 - 14 days" and "Allow to dry clear before painting" (Seriously? 14 days?). So, when it is cured, it is clear. In 14 days. Really?!?! But the real kicker is "Don't apply when rain/freezing temps, are forecasted before full cure can occur." And, based on their label, that is 7 to 14 days. So, if there is a chance of rain within 2 weeks and you want to caulk, seal, and paint your home --- don't buy this product. Wishing now I would have purchased the "....paint within 30 minutes. Can apply in rain..." alternative brand. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty good stuff This is a very good product. It should be know that in the instructions it says there is a 10 minute tooling time. That doesn't work for me. at room temperature I'll run about 10' of of a straight bead, less for more detailed work, before tooling it. Once even a slight skin has formed you wont get a nice clean face. For deep cracks I recommend not filing the whole void, fill less than a 1/4" or so if you can. This will greatly reduce the amount of shrinkage you'll get. If you want to fill deep voids plan on doing 2 or more coats with a day or more dry time between them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too thin. I'm only 1/4 through my first tube and I'm getting something else. It's far too thin and continues to run from the tube even after the pressure from the gun is released. Other reviews mention cracking, long cure time and a second coat. Based on how thin it is, I'm sure that's true. I don't have time to do things twice. Anybody want my second tube?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have built a 10' giraffe with Alex Plus Caulk Plus My friends said I couldn't have a giraffe. So I just decided to build a 10' giraffe. I have used SEVERAL tubes of Alex Plus chalking so I named my giraffe "Alex", I'm actually on my 4th case of Alex Plus caulking. He is so awesome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing, ruined our whole paint job Applied to seams on a board and batten exterior of an older house doing one wall at a time have not even finished the project and caulking on the first walls have allready started to crack and pull apart. It has ruined the entire paint job

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not recommend Used this product on the exterior of a shower door threshold, between metal and tile. I had noted the 7-14 day dry time, but assumed this was a worst case; i.e. high humidity, cool temps, large bead, etc. Needed only a very thin bead, and in 12 hours it was "clear". Even so, I waited a full 24 hours to test, at which point it matched the shower's original clear sections. Failed immediately, but the good news is that it really does clean up easily with water, so all I'm out is a couple of hours of my time and the cost of a tube.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruined my paint hob Followed all directions on tube the caulk has started to crack even before the project was finished. Disapointment on several levels. Besides looking badly now I have to repair and repaint never mind the additional costs in materials and time.
