The fifth annual Pro Tool Innovation Awards were judged, and three DAP® products including DynaGrip® Heavy Duty Max and ALEX Plus® and ALEX Flex® Spackling were chosen as Winners. Tool, fastener, and accessory winners were decided by innovation—including a mix of new features, power, and value. These are best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time. Over 50 different manufacturers submitted 260 tool entries in dozens of categories for a shot to win a 2017 Pro Tool Innovation Award.

"When manufacturers built tools and accessories that break the mold, they deserve recognition. Professional consumers need to know which tools are a cut-above and breaking new ground," said Clint DeBoer, Executive Director of the Pro Tool Innovation Awards. "These are the tools that should really be in every tradesman's toolbox. They can save you time, money, and even make the job easier or more ergonomic."

A panel of judges made up of tool and media professionals from across the United States and Canada weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers, and DAP received awards for its DAP® DynaGrip® Heavy Duty Max and ALEX Plus® and ALEX Flex® Spackling products. Here's what the judges had to say:

“When DAP launched the DynaGrip line earlier this year, we knew they made some serious improvements on the adhesive side of the industry. Their Heavy Duty Max is a hybrid adhesive blend that offers much faster bonding rates than other adhesives in this strength class. In an industry where time is money, you don’t have time to wait around for an adhesive to cure before you can move on to the next step. DynaGrip Heavy Duty Max keeps you more productive and therefore, more profitable.

DAP’s ALEX Plus and ALEX Flex Spackling solve a major problem when it comes to repairing drywall cracks thanks to the ability to sand and paint it. ALEX Flex Spackling also flexes with the movement of the building so you get a much longer-lasting fix that doesn’t leave behind the look of drywall that’s been repaired. Whether you’re a DIYer or Pro, these are spackles you should never be without.”
