Dual Glazing Compound
Sarco Dual Glaze Elastic Glazing Compound
Use on site or in the shop on wood or metal
This glazing compound holds a permanent, water-tight bond on wood and metal sash and doors. Easy to handle, it is made with non-drying linseed oil that sets into a firm, tough cushion and adheres tightly to glass and sash. Dual glaze allows for normal expansion and contraction without pulling away. Ready for oil or latex paint after surface skin has formed, usually in 2-3 weeks. It is the most versatile glazing compound for glaziers, painters, and homeowners.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q Should the wood be primed before applying glaze? And when applied outside in a cool temp (50-60f) how long is the wait before painting over glaze?Answered by the admin Yes, you should prime the bare wood before using the Dual Glazing Compound. You should wait until the glazing compound skins over before painting, usually within 2-3 weeks.
Q Once a can of glaze is opened, how long will the glaze still be usable?Answered by the admin
The product has about a 2 year shelf life. After opening layer a piece of seran wrap over the top of the product and seal it tightly, storing in a cool place.
Q HOW MUCH DUAL GLAZE DO I NEED FOR 6 OVER 6 WINDOWS, PER WINDOW, OR PER 10 WINDOWS OR PER WHATEVER NUMBER YOU HAVE INFO ONAnswered by the admin
1 lb of putty will cover approximately 6 feet glazing for a 1/2" sash.
Q I finished my glazing job and was waiting for it to skim over, in place, before I painted, but then the rains started. Now that the weather has subsided, 6 months later, I see that there are cracks on the lowest edge of the glaze. Do I need to remove all the glaze from that pane and redo, redo just that edge, or would it be best to redo all the glaze on the window (10 huge diamond panes) and redo because I took too long?Answered by the admin
- You can try to scrape off the putty where it is cracked and putty over it with a skim coat. This might be satisfactory. Putty should be painted within a month of application for best results.
Q What is the difference between the Dual Glaze and the Type M? Are they interchangeable? Is one a stronger bond than the other?Answered by the admin
Dual Glaze is for outdoor use, Type M is for indoor use.
