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. Apply indoors or outdoors.

Q If possible I would like to use this product without removing the glass from my windows. I always managed to break the windows when trying to get them out. Willl this product work properly if I do not remove the Windows, scrape out the old glazing, and apply a little oil based primer to the exposed portion of the rabbit joint that is not covered by the glass? Thanks!Answered by the admin
Q I just purchased sarco dual glaze. I know you recommend the use of oil-based primer under the glaze. is it okay to use the oil based primer under the glaze and a different kind of primer on the rest of the window? I would prefer to use oil based paint under the glazed and a different kind of primer for the rest of the windows so I don't have to strip the entire window of paint. Thanks!Answered by the admin
You can use what ever type of primer you would like of the rest of the window, but do not prime the Sarco putty, just use a good quality paint.
Q I have natural wood windows which are sealed, not painted. Can Sarco Dual Glaze be left unpainted ? Can a water base seal be used over Dual Glaze ? Which is better ?Answered by the admin
You should apply a good quality paint over the Dual Glaze.
