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.
no, of course not. it's a flexible caulk. this topic is in the Q&A section.
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.
Yes, perfect use for this sealant.
Thank you for posting your inquiry. For this type of application, we would recommend the use of a more specialized kitchen and bath sealant, such as: DAP KWIK SEAL ULTRA or DAP SILICONE MAX Premium Kitchen, Bath & Plumbing 100% Silicone Sealant. Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.
DAP Alex Flex 10.1 oz. is available in two colors: White and Antique White. However, Home Depot may carry only White.
Thank you for posting your inquiry. DAP ALEX FLEX is not designed, tested, labeled or recommended for use in roofing applications. This type of application would require the use of more specialized sealants. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information from you and to discuss your product options.
Thank you for posting or inquiry. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "Allow sealant to dry at least 30 minutes (longer in cool or humid conditions) before painting with latex or oil-based paints". Should you have additional questions or require further assistance, please feel free to contact DAP Technical Customer Service at 888-327-8477.
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.
