I have tried scores of caulks over thirty years of home maintenance projects, I have settled on Dynaflex for most interior and exterior uses, with the exception of places I know are either going to stay really wet, or need to be painted quickly. DAP's Sidewinder works well for those caveats, but it's harder to clean up and it doesn't finger tool as well.
I'm only writing this review because someone was asking me about caulks today, and I couldn't quite think of "Dynaflex" since I didn't have a tube of it handy---so I checked DAP's website for the name, then came across the review from the person who had trouble with paint adhesion. My guess is that the gaps were wide enough to need a little extra drying time. I wait until the whitish color goes away completely, then it's safe to paint.
It's flexible, it's easy to work with, it doesn't reek, it's easy to clean up, and it's relatively inexpensive.

We replaced siding trim on a back porch exterior with Hardy board and used this caulk to seal all edges and holes. It dried overnight and the next day we painted with Sherwin Williams Emerald exterior acrylic latex paint (very expensive), and it would not cover the caulked areas. Everywhere we caulked the paint bubbled. After painting the caulked areas 4-5 times, the cover was finally almost acceptable. We will never use this product again and are returning what is left to the store.

Color labeling is consistently wrong.

By Keith

About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

Comments about Dap 230 Dynaflex Premium Elastomeric Latex (18275):

I have purchased this product several times and the color labeling is usually wrong. Good thing it is paintable. I guess I don't understand why DAP management would consider it acceptable to mis-label their product. Doesn't say much for accountability.

Bad batch of this product?

By Justin

from Beaverbank, NS

About Me Casual Do-It-Yourselfer

Pros

  • Easy To Clean

Cons

  • Breaks Easily
  • Deteriorates
  • Messy

Best Uses

    Comments about Dap 230 Dynaflex Premium Elastomeric Latex (18275):

    Never seemed to show any water proof or resistant properties after being applied, and seemingly dissolved in the gentle rain which came the following day. Was applied well within the acceptable parameters for cure time, temperature, and humidity. Everything, from the filling for 1 cm gaps to the tiniest seams and corners all melted away, leaving puddles of the product pooling along the foundation flashing and long white streaks washing away down our black asphalt driveway, along with substantial moisture ingress where our garage door trim meets the concrete foundation. On the bright side, it was exceptionally easy to clean even 48 hours later, wiping away with ease using just paper towels. I assume I received a bad batch, because I know through experience the more common, less expensive DAP products I have used, like Alex, although not specifically designed for this job, would have held up far better than this batch of 230 garbage did.

        I used it and it cured for 2 days. Then it rained. The water caused it to get mushy and come out of parts of the joints. I had to redo everything.

            Comments about Dap 230 Dynaflex Premium Elastomeric Latex (18275):

            I have read comments indicating Dynaflex 230 absorbs moisture after drying, does not dry within the time frame published by the manufacturer, and you cannot apply paint until well after the manufacturer's specified time. OK, maybe some validity to those comments, however, drying time is based upon ambient temperature and humidity, and the moisture content of the surfaces upon which the caulk is applied. If the moisture content of the surfaces is high, and if the temperature is low, and if the humidity is high, the product takes an extremely long time to dry. If the moisture of the surfaces is low, the humidity is low and the temperature is above 75, then the product dries per the manufacturer's specifications. One note of caution. If you use a colored caulk outdoors, and you do not plan to paint over the caulk, do not use this caulk. Even after days and days of drying, if the caulk is exposed to rain the caulk surface will turn whitish. If you apply this caulk under low humidity, warm or high temperature conditions, and the surfaces are pretty dry, and you plan to paint over this caulk, this caulk is great!

                As a General Contractor I have tried many caulking products over the past 25 years and I have to say this is my go to caulk. I not only use it on exterior projects but it also works great caulking in backsplashes and trim components. Have also inspected projects several years after completion and the caulking still looks great.
