Product Description

With the DAP ALEX ULTRA Advanced Latex Sealant, you can be sure that you will get the highest quality acrylic latex sealant that will deliver exceptional performance for any professional painter. The Anti-Shrink technology has proven to shrink less, allowing a more durable and long-lasting seal to be formed that will not crack once painted. After applying it to the wall, it can be painted with a brush within 15 minutes or sprayed immediately for improved productivity.

As well as being low-shrink, durable, flexible, and low-odor, this sealant does not pick up dirt and is not prone to shrinkage. In addition to having superior adhesion to a wide range of surfaces, the caulk provides a 100% waterproof seal, and the cured caulk cannot be affected by mold or mildew. Temperatures above 40F degrees should be applied; if rain or freezing temperatures are forecast within 24 hours, do not apply. Upon purchase, you will receive a Lifetime Warranty on this product. It exceeds the specifications of ASTM C834. Suitable for interior as well as exterior use.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

DAP ALEX ULTRA Advanced Anti-Shrink Latex Sealant
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
