See how what I actually said sounds compared to the partial quote you used sounds???
MOST places do not rotate stock and LEXEL is not commonly used so that is why I said what I said.
Panties all up in a wad? Sensitive much? Repeating the same sentence does not add clarification, it just repeats the sentence. Repeating the same sentence does not add clarification, it just repeats the sentence. Do you see what I did there? I repeated the sentence. Is it clearer now? No, it's not.
I quoted you sufficiently to receive some clarification in the final paragraph of your reply.
The fact that it needs to be placed in hot water does not make it a horrible sealant. Application temperature of any sealant is specified on the label. A temperature range or optimum application temperature for every sealant on the market is specified on the label. Maybe you have been using it outside of its specified temperature range. That still doesn't make it a horrible sealant. It just means you misused the product.
Rotating old stock or lack of rotation is also not unique to Lexel. Standard caulk also goes bad after sitting on the shelf too long. I guess that makes all caulk horrible because you might get an old tube if you aren't paying attention when you make your purchase and just grab the first tube you see without checking for dates or date codes. Dust on the tube might also be a clue that the tube you just grabbed is older than the shiny clean tubes at the back of the shelf.
I've used Lexel on several projects and never had a problem. I think I've discovered why you think Lexel is horrible. It appears to be user error. You're welcome.
