Answer

Thank you for posting your inquiry. Low surface energy surfaces (such as slick plastics/composites), require the use of more specialized sealants, such as DAP 3.0 (Hybrid Polymer Chemistry). Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

If you want to stick with this line of caulk/sealant, my advice is to spend another buck or two and go with the Dap Dynaflex 230 or better yet, the Dynaflex Ultra products. They're far superior in 'holding power' and I've emptied cases of this stuff on all types of projects. Never let me down yet. I do have to say, I'd likely look at one of the Loctite adhesives for this project, though. Coupled with a few pin nails as appropriate, you should be in good shape. I wouldn't rely on the adhesives/sealants alone, especially in a moisture rich environment like a bathroom.

Hi JBL, Unlike a 100% silicone based product, these latex elastomeric based caulks don't attract and hold lint and dust anywhere near as much. The cured surface is far less "rubbery" and allows for much easier cleaning.

Could I use this on a 1 inch space between wood floor and baseboards?

Asked by Steph September 27, 2020

Answers

You'll be sorry if you do, I believe. Multiple other solutions not involving caulk gobbing/smearing would look much better - but if you're determined to use caulk as a solution in this case, check out the Big Stretch product or the Dap Dynaflex 230 or Dynaflex Ultra products. You really need a specialized product to bridge that kind of gap but you're going to have a very hard time tooling anything to hide that big of a gap.

This item was exactly as described, careful how big you make the tip hole. It does tend to continue coming out when not in use like all cocking tends to do.
