  4. Q what is meant by inside shop glazing only on type M? Does that mean it should not be used on storm windows?
    Answered by the admin

    Type M must be used in doors and the windows needs to stay in doors until it skins over. Once it skins over you can place the window outside. So you can apply to your storm window, but it must be done inside and kept inside until skinned over.

    So far, this stuff is horrible. It’s extremely sticky and nearly to impossible to use. Cleanup of tools and my hands was very difficult. I would accept the stickiness if the instructions mentioned this possibility and what to do about it. The problem is there are no instructions. The side of the tub has only one sentence about allowing it to skim over before painting and that’s it. It’s possible that detailed instructions that cover common problems are available somewhere but, after searching the internet, I haven’t found it. I have found conflicting advice, however. This product should at least come with much more detailed instructions, rather than appearing to cater only to those who have been glazing windows for 30 years. I bought it because the DAP glazing compound is so maligned on the internet. I can’t imagine anything being worse than the Sarco putty.
