Dunlop acrylic caulk

Post by timjones » Sat Nov 07, 2015 6:52 am

Anybody used this?
Went to a trade show at a crown decor center in Walsall yesterday and the rep had high praise indeed for the product (no suprise there) no cracking or glazing he said...... (He didn't have a free tube for me to try but said he will have some at the p+D show)

Hi guys , I haven't used that , but I need to find something !! The caulk I have used seems to stick like s...e to a blanket and is impossible to get of your hands , and then cracks up the next day. I use Geocel and have tried Polyfilla , ( at 4 times the price that it should be ) but both seem the same. It seems to me it all changed roughly 4/5 years ago , but am an old git so maybe wrong on times ! There must be something out there that works like it used to !

hi Scotty
I have found the same problem with the Dulux caulk, but have started using the fat hog brand from Johnstones trade centre. Had no problems with that so far.

Hi Scotty,
stick with the white caulk and avoid the cream/brown and you should be ok. Found that you can overpaint it within an hour with no problems with cracking on emulsion or oil based.

Absolutely love the Dunlop caulk, it's easily the best I've used, it's quite expensive compared to other brands but well worth it as it doesn't crack when over painted
