Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Daptex Plus is designed to meet the tough standards demanded for professional window and door installations while effectively filling and sealing large cracks, gaps and voids. Unlike polyurethane foams, it will not over expand, is toolable, moldable and cleans up easily with water. It remains soft and flexible when dry so it will not bow, buckle or distort frames. The innovative latex polymer foam technology provides water resistance and is paintable with latex paints once cured. Daptex Plus helps reduce energy loss as well as pest infiltration and is ideal for sealing air leaks to improve energy efficiency and reduce heating and cooling costs.

Answer: 
You can remove dap with nail polish remover & a razor blade. If it foams out too large for the space you need it, then you need to wait til it drys & cut it off with an electric knife.

Answer: 
If it is caulking start with a utility knife and cut the caulk along the window glass to free it from the glass, then along the window frame. If the frame is wood be careful not to cut into the wood by laying the blade as flat as possible against the wood frame and cut carefully, (make one or two shallow cuts if it is easier for you to cut through the caulk). Now use a putty knife to scrape the caulk out Read More
If it is caulking start with a utility knife and cut the caulk along the window glass to free it from the glass, then along the window frame. If the frame is wood be careful not to cut into the wood by laying the blade as flat as possible against the wood frame and cut carefully, (make one or two shallow cuts if it is easier for you to cut through the caulk). Now use a putty knife to scrape the caulk out of the frame. Clean all loose material out and brush clean ( I use old tooth brushes to help loosen and remove dirt and loose paint in the cracks). Check glazing points to make sure they are not loose or broken/rusted and replace as needed.
Now you should be ready to re-caulk, paint as needed and you are done.

Answer: 
As this is water based, soap and water should do ... any hardened material can be scraped first, but this stuff does not get very hard, it gets to the hardness of bread when dry.

Answer: 
Providing that the joints to be sealed are less than 1/2" or less, a silicone rubber based sealant would be the most appropriate way to make an airtight seal on an HVAC system.

Answer: 
DAPtex Plus Multi-Purpose Foam Sealant can be used in contact with copper plumbing pipes, however, due to copper's reactive nature, discoloration (blue/green) of the copper and/or foam may result. DAPtex Plus has a temperature application range of: 45ºF to 105ºF (45ºF and rising) and a temperature service range of: 0ºF to 150ºF.

Answer: 
We do not recommend the use of DAPtex Plus for filling large (multi-inch) gaps. Typically voids of those dimensions require two-component spray foams or traditional insulation products such as fiberglass or cellulose.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This the most disappointing sealer I have ever used I used to along my foundation but it never cured. Moisture, temperature who know exactly but even inside the results were similar. Spongy on the outside and wet inside. May 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by great when you can use it... great idea! but i bought 2 cans; 1 when it wouldn't spray and couldn't use; the second can didn't work as well!!!!!!!!! i couldn't return them because the dribble i got from the cans made them look used. April 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by complete waste of money I bought this to "seal" a gap for a storm door threshold. It actually disintegrated and washed away during a rain shower three days later. I later left a glob of it on my work bench, as a follow up test. After a full week, it was the consistency of sticky shaving cream. April 11, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Okay for some stuff I installed glass block windows in my basement and had to use some sort of filler along the top because mortar was not advised. The gap was about 3" deep and 1/2 - 3/4" high (I had to chisel out concrete so it was very uneven). I've used yellow foam before but decided on this stuff soley because it was white and I didn't want the yellow stuff casting a tinge of color through the blocks. I sprayed it in and like other reviews said, it doesn't do much post expansion. So getting it in and even was pretty easy without those dreaded blow outs where it comes dripping all down the edge. Unfortunately, like a lot of other reviews, mine never dried, even after a whole week. It develops a skin for sure, but the consistency very much stays like whipped cream on the inside. I feel like I could have pulled it all out very easily with my finger since it was real gooey and didn't seem to actually adhere to anything. After a week, I became impatient and caulked up on both sides. Even if it hadn't fully set, it was at least some sort of mass sitting between the caulk joints insulating and keeping air out. So for that part, and not being yellow, I give it 3 stars. But as far as utility goes, someone else mentioned this is more of like a "craft foam" rather than a serious one. It doesn't seem to have any adhesion properties, has almost no expansion where you typically would want at least a little, and whether or not it ever cures to a solid seems to be questionable. I'd stick to the yellow stuff for serious applications. Use this for that rare case like me where you have to have white and can easily seal it with something else. February 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by total garbage followed the directions carefully and the foam has not dried a week later at room temperature. junk product. January 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy it....you will not be happy Better suited for arts and crafts than true weather proofing. As stated it does not over expand and really does not do much of anything. Does not dry in a timely manner. When it does dry it dries flaky. Product does say that it mist be painted however it really does not provide a well cured base for the paint to adhere to. Poor Product...Do not use! ***Experience level Pro-contractor and home renovation *** December 26, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product when used as intended Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I just used it and I want to give it some more time (I will come back later). As of right now, I impressed! I researched this product before I bought it (somewhat reluctantly) and just finished using it to seal around the exterior door that was just installed. I have used the other expanding foam for other projects and I can say that for me, Daptex is ideal. I tend to be as neat as possible with sealants, etc. and the fact that I can tools this stuff with my finger is amazing (and it washes off your hands with just water). Here are the things I was concerned about before I used it: How much does it expand? Think back to your old days using that can of mouse or that redi-whip you have in the fridge. Its comparable to that. The best thing for this stuff is the expansion happens in real time as you are spraying it. It does not keep expanding for an hour after you fill the gap, thus you have a ton of control! How long does it take to dry? I just sprayed it about an hour ago and it already has a skin over it, it has stayed exactly where I sprayed it, and there have been no problems with it oozing out (despite other reviewers mentioning this). Will this work on larger gaps? I had a gap that was 7" deep X 42" wide X 2" tall and I had no trouble. What is all this talk of disintegration? it is not as hard as the other name brand, but that is a good thing. I had no issues of this stuff collapsing like a puff ball in the yard. The best comparison I have read is that it is similar to bread, if I didn't tool it just right and I wanted to put trim over it, I would not have to worry about cutting it away before nailing the trim, it will conform to the space given. MY RECOMMENDATIONS: I placed both cans of this stuff next to our heating register for about 3 hours (thats just how long it took for me to get to this project today). The heat seems to help it come out better, though I will admit I did not try using a can that wasn't by the heater, but I read this tip from another source to be important. Shake the heck out of it. If you have a very tight space to squeeze into, you can collapse the end of the straw with a pliers (gently) and it still work as intended. I had to collapse about 3/4 of the straw to reach some of the tight spots in my door frame and this worked very well. Wash out the straw if you don't use the whole can. A coat hanger (wire) or some other device is helpful to push the reaming foam out of the straw so it is reusable. January 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it says. I like this product. It is certainly different than the solvent based products. Much softer when dry with the consistency of a loaf of soft bread. I used both the DAP and other products on my project with different results. The project was overhead, filling gaps behind the HVAC registers and tapering for smoother airflow. It was also to keep out bugs that crawl through the cracks. The DAP foam was much easier to apply and stayed where I put it. Though its not sticky, when you apply it, it stays. The other product wanted to fall out, and then trying to caress it back in place didn't work as it then stuck to whatever I was using to try to push it back up. As the project was overhead, the DAP worked better as the can does not need to be held upside down like others. It does take longer to dry (two days for me), but once dry provided a finish like the top of baked bread instead of the lumpy bumpy finish of the other. But the DAP is not as structurally sound once dry. You can easily poke a finger into it or pull it out. I'd estimate that its about 4 times softer than a solvent based product. If you need sturdy, you're better off with something else. It tooled fine once dry. But let it dry completely or you'll make a mess. Water cleanup was great. No need for acetone. Overall, I'd like to see this stuff dry up to a sturdier end product, but it seems to be holding up fine so far. February 18, 2013
