Dual Glaze® Glazing Compound
Elastic, Linseed Oil-Based Glazing Compound for On-Site, Outdoor Glazing.
Uses: Sarco Dual Glaze® is a knife-grade glazing putty used for bedding glass on-site, for both metal and wood sash.
Features & Benefits: Dual Glaze 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 depending on temperature and conditions. It is the most versatile glazing compound for glaziers, painters, and homeowners.
Technical Characteristics: Linseed oil-based putty. Should be painted with oil or latex paint after developing a skin. Can be used indoors or outdoors but is recommended for on-site glazing as it is designed to set slowly and benefits from outdoor atmospheric conditions. Apply with putty knife or other glaziers’ tools.

Cover unused putty in opened containers with plastic to prevent skin formation. Store in a cool, as cool as possible above freezing, place to keep oils stable. Allow to warm when ready to use. If separation occurs, knead with fist. After applying 50/50 boiled linseed and denatured alcohol do I still need to apply primer to the wood before glazing?

Did you prime the sash prior to apply the putty?A I had the same problem. I am beginning to think that just skinning over before painting is not enough time and that perhaps the glazing needs to cure entirely before painting. I am basing this on my results using DAP 33 and Sarco. Wherever I painted before a complete cure I got mold/mildew but not where I let it cure entirely. And yes, I primed the sash.
