Questions & Answers

For exterior use? Paintable?

Asked by: Anonymous
The only good thing about this product is that it's cheap but, on that note, you get what you pay for. DAP latex caulks are ok for the purpose of caulking over nail heads on siding but, I do not not recommend using any DAP latex caulk product for any exterior window, siding, or trim applications. It is a water based product that will dry out and will not stand up to the prolonged exposure to the outside elements and constant high temps of summer. It will fail within 5 yrs regardless if the product says 10, 25, or 40 yr etc. Using this product has been the cause for me personally having to repair rotted siding, trim, window frames, and retro fit style windows, and in some cases the cause behind extensive repairs to the exterior wall framing because the caulking had cracked and completely failed, and always in the 5 yr time frame I stated before. I recommend using a polyurethane based caulk for exterior applications such as these. It will save you in the long run, and I will happily dispute this with anyone who tries to say different, including the manufacturers themselves.

Paint Time

How soon can the clear product be painted after application?

This drys pretty fast. You can paint in 30 minutes or one hour to be safe.

Can this be used to caulk the perimeter of a concrete countertop and the junction of a faucet and concrete countertop?
Asked by: Kate
Yes, you might want to tape the counter top for sure to have a nice smooth line, I'm not sure how much trouble you would have removing it from the cement surface otherwise.

Customer Reviews

Alex Plus 10.1 oz. White Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 423.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much waste! I try to avoid buying this stuff because it's so messy! It seems like every tube has a big air bubble in it! And of course the pocket of air is in the middle! Until the air bubbles escape, the caulk just keeps coming out of the tube. Running everywhere and over everything. I just squeezed out half a tube in the garbage until the "pop" of air came out. Now it's great to work with. Open the tube, and squeeze some out. Release the pressure of the gun, if the caulk keeps coming out,there is an air bubble. Squeeze it out until you hear the "pop"! Now it's good to work with.

I rarely write review but I am very disappointed with this product so I want to let other people know. I bought this pack a while ago for finishing my basement. Before I bought it, I read through the reviews and people mentioned two problems. 1) This product will shrink. 2) It keeps gushing out. I was foolish thinking that might be a rare case but both happened to me. My basement does not have very hot or cold temperature. It's air conditioned. The caulking shrank on a lot of places. The second problem is that air was sealed in the tube so it will gush out till the air pops out. This is annoying but I can bear with it. However, shrinking is really not acceptable. Very disappointed. Don't understand why it has such high rating!

We have used/tried several silicone based or silicone plus products and brands over the years, with differing levels of success. Not all products adhere well to the work surfaces and all too often the bottles are not working properly. After much trial and error... Alex Plus Clear Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone has provided us with the most overall: (1) fair price, (2) works on many surfaces, (3) dependable applicator bottle and (4) works over a pretty good temperature range. So far... this has been a pretty dependable caulk product, and we use a good amount of it.

I use a lot of caulk and I have found that Alex Plus by Dap, for the average usage indoor and out, is hard to beat. It is easy to use and easy to clean up with a wet sponge or something similar. (Clean as you go if it is hot outside or it will take a bit more effort). Of course if you have an extreme caulk requirement you probably should stick with Silicone but for the average Joe it is much more difficult to work with ( there are a couple tricks to using Silicone that makes it easier to manage). I haven't found one silicone product better than the others so I generally go with the least expensive. This is not true of acrylic latex with silicone products, as shown here, I have found a significant difference in them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not holding up to rain Doing work on outside of the house. I put trim around windows and doors. I used this and it was set for 2 weeks before it rained. When it rained, it all started to wash away and turn to jello like. I used 15 tubes! Not happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent adhesion. Easy clean up. No complaints! I've used a lot of caulking sealants in the past. Most are adequate, but can be a little messy. This one has a nice flow to it without being too runny. I find some are either too thick or too thing. Forgive the Goldie Locks reference, but this one is just right. I can't comment on if it can be painted easily, but the white is a nice clean bright white. It's forgiving when pushed into cracks with a fingertip and smooths out nicely. Drying time was fine, although not fast. It maintains a little flexibility so I expect will last many years. Definitely recommended. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Home Depot has no process to assure quality. DAP is pushing garbage on to them. Did work on Sunday, last night, Thursday the material had not come near setting up. That is 5 days in 70 plus degree weather. Test it before you use it to make sure it will actually set. Removed the material last night now I get to start over, hope to find a product I can trust the quality of. Will be very careful of DAP from now on.
