DAP recently announced new advanced hybrid sealants that outperform silicone and provide maximum performance. Combining the best attributes from traditional silicone and polyurethane technologies, the AMP family of sealants from DAP reportedly features superior weatherability and durability. They can be used in extreme temperatures and prevent mold and mildew growth.

AMP advanced hybrid sealants offer a variety of project and application solutions. Developed for both exterior and interior applications, the new AMP line delivers a 100% weatherproof and waterproof seal. It can be applied on wet and damp surfaces, offers temperature use of 0-140°F, features fast and efficient 30-min paint and rain/water ready times, and is backed by a lifetime mold and mildew resistance guarantee.

“While there are many sealant options to choose from, our lineup of AMP Hybrid Sealants leapfrogs traditional sealant performance to provide maximum project performance that can’t be matched,” said Megan Youngs, director of product management for Caulks and Sealants at DAP. “For exterior applications, users will appreciate that AMP offers superior weatherability and durability, can be applied in extreme temperatures while staying flexible, and is UV resistant with strong substrate adhesion. AMP’s innovative hybrid technology also offers proven wet surface application and prevents mold and mildew growth, which gives users long-lasting confidence whether their job is inside or out.

“AMP solves frustrations where other hybrid technologies have fallen short. This advanced modified polymer sealant applies and tools smoothly, with no stringiness, is low odor, and is non-hazy during applications and once cured.”

DAP also recently announced the launch of ALEX® Ultra Advanced Anti-Shrink Sealant. The company reports that the sealant is formulated with breakthrough anti-shrink technology and is specifically designed to meet the demanding needs of professional paint jobs by solving for traditional latex sealant pain points while still providing ease of use. ALEX Ultra features silicone additives for greater flexibility and excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates, including wood, drywall, plaster, brick, masonry, glass, and most plastics and metals. These two features combined provide a long-lasting bead and excellent finish that won’t crack or lose adhesion over time.

“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. “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.”
