What are paint shiners?
Shiners are unsightly glossy spots that appear when some flexible sealants are painted. DAP® ALEX PLUS®, ALEX FAST DRY® and ALEX FLEX® will not gloss or discolor paint.
Why is ALEX FLEX® ideal for Molding and Trim?
Sealing molding and trim can be a tricky project if the wrong sealant is used. Multi-piece crown molding can have up to five or more moving parts that must be sealed. Seasonal changes can cause wood trim to expand and contract, stressing seams year round. DAP® ALEX FLEX® provides maximum flexibility and adhesion for a crack proof seal, as well as fast paintability and no paint shiners, making it ideal for molding and trim projects.
