Choosing the Right Product: Sashco's Slab vs. Mor-Flexx

May 18, 2015

It can be confusing to choose the right caulking product when they have a lot in common.

Say you have a concrete crack in your sidewalk, and a crack in your stucco near a window. Sashco makes two great products, both made for these textured surfaces. So which one should you use?

The answer is both.

Yes, Sashco's Slab® and Mor-Flexx® have some similarities:

  • They're both for textured surfaces.
  • They're both easy to apply.
  • They're both easy to clean up with water.
  • They're both safe through 10 freeze-thaw cycles when unopened.
  • They both come with a Limited Lifetime Guarantee.
  • They both have really cool names (even if we do say so ourselves).

How Slab® and Mor-Flexx® are different

Formula Specially formulated:

Specially formulated:
  • For superb adhesion to brick, stucco, stone, mortar, and other common building materials
  • With extra elasticity, to handle the movement that all normal homes undergo with wind and changes in weather

 

Can I use Slab® in place of Mor-Flexx®? Or Mor-Flexx® in place of Slab®?

Yes, you may use Slab® where you use Mor-Flexx®, but it probably won't match as well as Mor-Flexx®. For better overall aesthetics, choose Mor-Flexx®. (It's also costs a bit less.)

No, you may not use Mor-Flexx® where you use Slab®. It'll get beat up and damaged by foot and vehicle traffic.
