    Q:Is this product good for exterior window glass to sash

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry on DAP Alex Plus Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone. General-purpose caulks and sealants are not designed, tested, or recommended for glazing applications (installation of class into window frames). DAP offers specialty window glazing compounds for this type of application. The use of any other product for glazing application would constitute an off-label use (misapplication). Should you have any additional questions or wish to discuss this further, please free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

        Q:Is there a recommended outdoor temp for best applying indoors
        by|Jan 13, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "ALEX PLUS (Clear) applies white and dries clear in 7-14 days (depending on joint depth, temperature and humidity). Do not apply when rain or freezing temperatures are forecasted within 24 hours( when applied in exterior conditions). Cooler temperatures and higher humidity will slow down dry time.” Application outside of these conditions will lead to long dry times and slow performance development. Should you have any additional questions or wish to discuss this, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

          Horrible stuff
          Do not buy this product. I put it around my sink and even though it did dry clear, when it gets wet it is white again. When it goes white, it softness and separates. This has been in my sink for a few months now but I just couldn't take haw disgusting it gets and pulled it out. Note: The dry time states 7-14 days cure time. How can a product for things such as a window require 14 days dry time. Rain, dampness, humidity, need I say more. I had to give it 1 star but deserves none.

              If you're using this in a dry environment it works great. If however, you're using it where it's going to be damp after you applied it, don]t use this product. I used it to seal the rotted basement door jamb I had removed and installed a composite lower jamb kit and the brick moulding on a basement door that is beneath my deck. It rained about 6 hours after I completed the job. I had the deck above the door covered with a tarp to keep the rain at bay. This product literally ran out of the joints where the jamb kit meets the good part of the jamb and where the jamb kit meets the aluminum threshold. The seal on the brick moulding was fine until you got down the the lower last foot. Again this product was like clam chowder running out of where I had applied it. I did re-apply it and the weather cooperated and it seems fine and it's all painted. It does say paint-able in 30 minutes so I assumed it would work. In Nevada it would have worked fine.

              Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP ALEX PLUS. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "Do not apply if rain or freezing temperatures are forecasted before full cure can occur. Cold weather and high humidity will slow down cure time." Additionally, DAP Alex Plus is designed, tested, and recommended for general purpose sealing applications, such as trim and molding. The application as described will likely present moisture challenges that would require the use of a more specialized product, such as DAP Premium Polyurethane Construction Adhesive Sealant. 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 regarding your experience and to arrange to provide you with a more appropriate product for this project.

              Smooth and easy
              Got it as part of promotion, It had perfect smooth finish. I tried without any attachments too, found it so smooth even and easy to use. Instructions were clear too.. waiting for it to dry to see if it cracks or not?

                Thank you for posting your feedback on DAP Alex Plus Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone. We are sorry to see your low star review on our product. DAP Alex Plus is a water based (acrylic latex) formula, the sole drying mechanism is the evaporation of water. Dry time can be significantly impacted by cool or humid application conditions, application to damp surfaces, applications where air contact is limited or by thick (deep) applications of the sealant. Please note that full clarity is only achieved once all of the water contained within the product has evaporated. Of note, DAP For roofing applications, DAP offers a line of specialty use sealants.

                Done with this junk...
                I don't know why I have used this product for so long. It really never works well and will always crack on you within a year. The first picture is where wainscoting meets the wall and it cracked within a few months. There is no movement between the two elements. The second picture is where some new crown molding meets the ceiling. I applied this and waited 6-hours and it crazed badly. 30-minutes ready? Now I have to deal with this mess. You never get your time back. Pay for a better product.

                Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to hear about your experience with DAP ALEX PLUS. Based on your commentary, it would appear that the applications that you are using the DAP ALEX PLUS sealant on may require higher performance products such as DAP DYNAFLEX 230, which is an elastomeric joint sealant with 3 times the amount of flexibility offered by DAP ALEX PLUS. 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 about your experience. DAP
                  Became powder
                  I used this product in my walk-in shower this time. After leaving it dry for few days and then took hot showers few times, it became soft like Putty and then like powder and came off! I thought, perhaps it was not specially designed for showers and bathroom room, so I bought the Kwik Seal Plus 10.1 oz. White Premium Kitchen and Bath Siliconized Caulk that is more expensive! However, it turned out to be the same (see picture). Can anyone suggest what I should use now?

                    Cracks, utter garbage
                    Cracked everywhere I used it on a bathroom and kitchen remodel. Used to be great, now I will never use it again. Had to redo all of the caulking two months later.

                      Ultimate piece of garbage
                      A month in and it has cracked every single caulking line. Every! Single! One! Every single corner corner, too. Every single flat joint, too. What a piece of garbage. "Excellent flexibility". Really??!?! 40 years? How about 40 days? I don't want my money back, I want the hours I spent applying it back!
