DAP Introduces New Sealants for Indoor/Outdoor Use

DAP is introducing a new line of four hybrid sealants designed to combine the best attributes of silicone and polyurethane, with specialized formulas for a variety of applications.

The AMP advanced modified polymer sealants provide a waterproof and weatherproof seal on interior and exterior applications alike. It resists mold and mildew growth across its lifetime, and may be applied on wet and damp surfaces at temperatures between 0 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The polymer meets ASTM C920 specifications for expansion and contraction in extreme weather conditions, and offers strong adhesion to a variety of building materials.

All formulations have a 30-minute paint and rain-water ready curing time, and offer UV protection against color fading, discoloration, and damage from harsh weather. Unlike silicones, the AMP will not crack, crawl, or produce shiners when painted, according to the manufacturer.

“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, 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. … This advanced modified polymer sealant applies and tools smoothly, with no stringiness, is low odor, and is non-hazy during applications and once cured.”

The AMP series is available in four formulations: AMP Kitchen & Bath, AMP Window, Door, Siding & Trim, AMP Self-Leveling Concrete, available now, and AMP Gutter & Flashing High Performance Sealant, available this spring. dap.com
