“My rating is misleading because it is based on the old formula. We quit buying the Alex Fast Dry a couple of years ago when they went from the 40 minute to the 30 minute dry time because it cracked out so bad. Am interested in trying the new formula!”
“I was provided with some fast dry caulk to try. I was very satisfied with the results. Caulking comes out nicely and applies evenly. I always smooth with a finger and lines were nice and smooth. Within a short amount of time, no more than 30 mins I was able to paint it. Paint went on evenly and impossible to tell it had been caulked.”
“My company received a couple sample tubes of Alex Fast Dry. My painters were very happy with the results from using it. The caulk flowed smoothly and applied evenly. We were able to paint within 30 minutes and the caulk did not show brush lines or any shine marks. I would recommend this product to others and continue to use it at our company. Thank you for the trial run.”
“I really like this product as I do a significant amount of new moulding. By the time I finish caulking a wall I'm ready to go back and paint it. It gets a nice firm finish on it within 20 mins and paint covers really well.”
