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 3.1 out of 5 by 97 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is great! This is a great gap filler for Windows, Doors and Walls. It's far better than Great Stuff and others because it stays more flexible than the competitors, which are rigid and hard to handle. It is very controllable as well which is very beneficial in cavity fills where the insulation must tightly fit. September 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better than expanding foams Great find! Saw this product several times in stores and figured it was just another expanding foam. These foams do a good job when used properly and in the right application, but they are pain to use. The other day I was searching the web for an interior window sealant for a gap between a hurricane window and concrete wall. (No, nothing structural. Installation contractor did a good job of installation except for the interior of a bathroom window over the bathtub. He used a lot of caulk to cover his sins; the caulk was beginning to mold and mildew despite routine cleaning.) Backer rod wasn't right, there wasn't enough working space for grout or mortar, and the gap was too deep for caulk. My search lead me to a website where a contractor was using the DAP foam. The contractor in the YouTube video was successfully showing my application. Next day I purchased a can and today used it. SUCCESS, except now I am waiting for it to cure so I can add a small bead a caulk over it. Guess I'll do some other things like cleanup. September 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does what I expected it to do We keep about 3,000 to 6,000 cans of this on hand and use it on 30 to 50 jobs a day. Primarily we use this product to seal between wood framing and wood door jambs at install. It does a good job gaps up to 1" and does not expand a great deal. Clean up is much easier than with expanded poly products. August 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terrible results Purchased this product at more than twice the price of similar products. Used to seal up small wire and plumbing openings in my camper. After 5 days it never set up or cured. Has no strength and would be impossible to paint. Don't understand how DAP (usually good products) could market such a poor product. Now I have to try and clean it all out and do over with something else. August 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very Weak It installed the way the instructions indicated. It looked pretty good after it set; it filled a 3/8" gap nicely. Unfortunately, it has little mechanical strength. Painted it after letting it set for couple of days, and had to be very careful/gentle so that the paint brush didn't wipe it out of the joint. I was hopeful this stuff would work. Most foam insulation is hard to work with; it over-expands, is very sticky, and you have to use the whole can once you open it. Daptex is easier to work with and you don't need to use the whole can. However, it's too weak, it's like caulking with cotton candy. Not sure I'll use the rest of the contents of the can, even though I could, and I won't buy another. September 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ABSOLUTELY A WASTE OF MONEY Simply look at every review written about this product. 90% of them will tell you the truth. You might as will drive down the road and throw your money out the window . This product failed before I even pushed the nozzle. July 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DONT BUY Don't buy, this product cures to a soft marsh mellow like substance. Does not adhere well to surfaces. I had to remove and use another foam sealant. Tried to review twice and both reviews rejected, hope this one sticks. i wish I had read the reviews before i purchased. September 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not recommended for sealing anything These are my comments against their claims: Seals, insulates and weatherproofs -- I DON'T THINK SO Easy water clean-up - YES Will not over expand - YES Tough and durable - NOT AT ALL, THIS IS A FALSE CLAIM. IT'S MORE LIKE WHIPPED CREAM. FOR 48 HRS STILL SO SPONGY. Conserves energy to save money - I DOUBT IT. No paint thinner required - DON'T KNOW. WILL NOT EVER TRY Water resistant - DON'T KNOW Paintable - DON'T KNOW. WILL NOT EVER TRY Toolable and moldable - IT'S LIKE WHIPPED CREAM; MOLDABLE: YES Reusable, non-clogging applicator - DON'T KNOW. I THREW THE CAN RIGHT AWAY Indoor/outdoor use - YES August 5, 2016
