Dap a Quality product with Fast Drying (20 minutes) White Acrylic Latex.
I like the fast drying of this product, about 20 minutes. Be sure to read all of the directions for use before you use this product. Dap is a great quality Latex and after you let this dry,apply paint or stain and this will give you years of service.

Works great
We love using this silicone to finish off our trim and get it ready for painting. It cleans up real nice and paints easy.

It comes off
I am disappointed in this caulk. I cleaned the surface hours before, put it on, let it dry up for several days, and when I’m ripping the tape off it comes off on the edges. This means the ceiling paint will rip off too when I’m taping it. I’ve never experienced this before.

Thank you for posting your feedback. The issue that you describe, regarding your use of masking tape, is not related to a product performance issue, rather it is as a result of the application technique employed. When using masking tape, the tape should be removed immediately after tooling and prior to the applied sealant skinning over (surface drying or drying through). If you wait until after the sealant has skinned over or dried through to remove the tape, you may pull up the sealant with it (as the tape typically becomes embedded under the applied sealant). At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information regarding your project and to offer some additional application guidance.

    My go to caulking to close up gaps!
    Very easy to apply and I generally use this caulking to close up gaps no more then 1/8 wide. I recently learned the secret to having clean caulking lines and it’s to go over the initial caulking bead with a wet finger and then using a wet sponge to clean up the line. This caulking is paintable after it dries.

      Poor choice
      I sealed the relief joints of a pool deck with foam backer rods and this caulk. A day later I painted the sealant with paint to match the deck. After a week the sealant shrank and rain has eroded the sealant staining adjacent areas with white residue. It is a mess.

      Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP ALEX FAST DRY. DAP ALEX FAST DRY is a general-purpose trim sealant, is not designed, tested, labeled or recommended for use on "traffic surfaces" (general flooring, sidewalks, driveways, patios or pool decks). Traffic surface applications require the use of more specialized products, such as DAP Premium Polyurethane Adhesive Sealant or DAP 3.0 High Performance Self-Leveling Concrete Sealant. For a recommendation on the proper products and methods for this type of work, please feel free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477. DAP

        Product turned liquid
        Caulked around shelves on wall. Product is very thin and shrunk down after drying requiring second caulking. Used about 1/10 of tube. A few months later when I went to use tube it had liquified and came out like white water.

          cracks
          Says crack-proof, but cracks even in 1/8” gaps, had to return to a finished job to redo caulking. False advertising, not cool!!!

            Thank you for posting your feedback about DAP ALEX PAINTER'S Caulk. The cracking pattern depicted in the photographs that you posted, indicates that a significant amount of joint movement is occurring at the application site. Given the amount of joint movement that appears to be occurring, we would recommend the use of an elastomeric sealant such as DAP DYNAFLEX 230 or DAP EXTREME STRETCH. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information regarding your project and so that we can provide you with a sample of either product referenced above.

              Eh! Look for something better.
              I don't care for this product. It may be relatively inexpensive, but the results don't last. We had the interior of our house painted and the painters used this on all joints. Cracks have appeared everywhere in less than a year. I've used this product as well. I recently took out two tubes (purchased last year). When I cut the tips off, water ran out. Huh? Then I shook them (which I've never done with caulk) and put them into the caulking gun. Caulk gushed out like thin toothpaste. I threw both tubes into the garbage. I can't recommend this product.

                    Excessive air in the tubes
                    The product seemed to have a lot to air in the tube which made the caulk continue to spew out even when gun pressure was released causing wasted product and a larger mess. Tried multiple guns w/ same result.

                    Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP ALEX FAST DRY. The issue that you describe (afterflow) can result from a number of conditions (individually or in combination), including attempting to apply the product through a very narrow tip opening, application out of temperature range, gunning the product too rapidly, the use of a non-drip free caulking gun, or a small amount of air trapped under the plunger in the end of the cartridge/within the filled product. While this issue has no adverse impact on the applied products performance, it can be frustrating and messy. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, the product may be returned to the point of purchase or returned directly to DAP for a refund of your purchase price. Instructions for this process can be found on the product package. Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477. DAP

                                          FAST DRY ?
                                          First I want to say I love Alexi Plus. I have used it for years on exterior wood trim. It really is fast drying and I have painted over it within hours of application. I find it holds up well over time and has a nice heavy consistancy that applys well. So when I could not firn Alexi Plus in my store I thought Alexi Fast Dry would work just fine. I used it on a relitivly cool day and it came out of the tube like it had been left in the sun for hours. That means very fluid and loose and quite hard to handle. And Fast DRy, not at all. I am sure Alexi Plus dries faster. I am very glad that I had only purchased one tube. If you use this product be sure to have a bucket of watrer and a cleanup rag handy. And using it in an itterior situation, say a finished new house with wall to wall carpet, well that would be a nightmard. The takaway here is use Alexi Plus and never Alexi Fast Dry

                                          Thank you for posting your feedback. DAP ALEX FAST DRY. ALEX FAST DRY is a water-based (acrylic-latex) formula, accordingly, the sole drying mechanism is the evaporation of water. Dry time can be significantly impacted by cool or humid application conditions or by thick (deep) applications of the product. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "Cooler temperatures and higher humidity will slow down dry time." Because you did not provide any background regarding your project or application conditions, it is difficult to provide a more detailed response. Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477. DAP
