New Product Announcement: Anti-Shrink Sealants


Baltimore-based construction product company DAP recently announced the release of a new advanced anti-shrink sealant.

According to an emailed press release, DAP’s ALEX Ultra Advanced Anti-Shrink Sealant is reported to meet the demanding needs of professional paint jobs by solving traditional latex sealant pain points, all while providing ease of use.

The product features silicone additives for flexibility and adhesion to a wide variety of substrates, including wood, drywall, plaster, brick, masonry, glass and most plastics and metals.

“DAP’s Ultra portfolio offers pros the premium features they seek to improve productivity and performance, while giving confidence to DIYers to get the job done right,” said Justin Lingenfelser, Product Manager at DAP. “New ALEX Ultra takes latex sealant performance to the next level by pairing best-in-class shrink resistance, excellent adhesion strength and a fast 15-minute paint-ready time allowing users to complete any paint project with precision and speed.”

DAP notes that ALEX Ultra is backed by a Lifetime Guarantee and is easy to apply and tools smoothly. It features a fast paint-ready time of 15 minutes with a brush or can be spray-painted immediately.

Additionally, the product’s technology is reported to help ensure paint film cracking won’t occur, providing long-lasting paint finish results. The sealant won’t shine through or discolor paint and is mold- and mildew-resistant once cured.

ALEX Ultra can be found at Home Depot stores.
