“Last week I put the caulk to the test and used about 6 tubes. We caulked both large gaps and small around base boards, door jams, and window frames. Pros: This caulk is super easy to work with. Keeping a damp rag with you easily gets it off your hands and it has a long enough open time to tool without pulling. I was able to paint over it within an hour in some areas without a problem Cons: Shrinkage on larger gaps was more than I would have liked but I've used a lot worse. My biggest gripe is air bubbles in the tube. Whether or not you're using a dripless caulk gun this stuff will continue to leak, even with the gun disengaged. The reason for this is small pockets of air in the tube. When the plunger of the gun pushes the caulk it compresses the air pocket which will then causes the compressed air to continue pushing out the caulk even without pressure from the gun. Eventually you'll get past the air bubble, and can actually hear it pop as it comes out. Once past it the tube will no longer drip. Conclusion: For me the air bubbles are a deal breaker. It's a time killer constantly making sure I'm not leaking caulk all over the place. It's one thing is it's a fluke tube but this was the case in every tube I tried. For that reason alone I will not continue to use this caulk.”
“I am a big fan of Alex Plus for quite a while. I tried some of the newer product and thought it worked great. It dries nice and smooth and ready to paint in 30 mins. Paint covers really well and creates a nice joint. Caulk holds up for a long time.”
