If you’ve had to do any kind of home repair in your time you’ve most likely hand your hands on a Dap product at some point. Dap has been sealing and weatherproofing things for years and the folks over at Dap R&D have now rolled out Dap 3.0.

When I heard “Dap 3.0” my mind immediately wandered into science fiction territory and I started to wonder if they’d stuffed nanobots into the goo, but alas, we’ll have to wait on that. No, Dap 3.0’s new formula sports a quick dry compound that can be exposed to water in just three hours and won’t wash out. That’s some damn good news to those who depend on sealant on the job or who, like me, use it like a ward against household evil.

So to sum up, caulking the bathroom or leaky roof just got a bunch easier and the wait is still ongoing for smart-goo. Dap 3.0 will run you a few bucks a tube and can be found just about anywhere fine goos are sold.

    Only if You Can Run a Perfect Line Out of the Gun

    Although it may have great quick weatherproofing capabilities, it’s very tough to work with if you can’t lay a perfect line right out of the gun. For years I’ve used standard painter’s caulk, usually utilizing the “wet finger” technique for smoothing. It’s done well for me. This stuff is like soft sticky stringy marshmallow. It sticks to anything you may try to use – fingers, caulk smoothing tools, whatever. For the layperson like me, unless I’m totally pressed by the weather, I’m staying with painter’s caulk. For the professional who can lay a perfect line: this is probably a great product for you.

      I agree with Skiier guy and Jeff. I just finished caulking a shower and tub enclosure with DAP 3.0. For me, a semi-skilled amateur handy guy, this stuff was difficult to use and smooth down and I thought I was fairly proficient and pretty good as an artist and paint handler. Perhaps with a few more application tries I could get better with it.

      This stuff is very sticky and I did an OK but not professional job. You wouldn’t want to pay me for my caulking work, but this was just my cousins shower and tub. Could you use vegetable oil on your finger to smooth it down?

      I hope there’s not a next time with shower, but if there is, I think I’ll try silicone. If I win the lottery, I’m paying a guy to redo it right after I buy my new Porsche.

    We use this stuff a lot on the tub surrounds and backsplashes in our units. It works wonderfully, durable and attractive. However, as SkiierGuy put more eloquently than I am about to, it is a FRICKIN BITCH to work with. This isn’t regular adhesive tub and tile caulk, and it’s not painter’s caulk. It’s basically like trying to run a bead of slightly thinned out molasses. It’s gonna stick to absolutely everything, and it’s not “easy water clean-up.” Carry a rag you don’t mind throwing away afterward for wiping up any excess.

    BTW, I CAN lay a perfect line with this stuff. Once you’ve had to experience trying to clean this crap up, you’ll quickly figure out how as well out of pure necessity.

    Use some soap or soapy water on your finger for smoothing silicon caulks. It relieves the super stickiness.
