What's so great about Chinker's Edge?
We know that the biggest cost of a job is not in the products used, but in the labor to apply them. So we've formulated Chinker's Edge to dramatically reduce the amount of time spent tooling the chinking. It cleans up very fast, requires much less misting and tooling, and still delivers incredible stretch to accommodate log movement.
Another great thing about Chinker's Edge is its compatibility with the white polystyrene backer board that is often used on Appalachian style log homes. Often chinking and caulking products will be formulated with a significant amount of "plasticizer" that eventually (over a period of years) migrates into the backer board and "eats" it away, causing the chink line to cave in and warp in areas. Chinker's Edge is made to be compatible with this backer board so that applicators can confidently use it and know that they won't be called back years later to repair any warping. (Note: For best results, it is best to apply a bond-breaker tape to the polystyrene foam before applying the Chinker's Edge -- this provides the best in 2-point adhesion and allows the chinking to perform best.)
Of course, we have the same great adhesion and early water resistance in Chinker's Edge that we insist upon in all our products.
