Customer Questions & Answers
Storage of my container of Type M has failed. When new it started as extremely sticky and was almost impossible to spread; it stuck to my hands and tools like it was thick paint. I had to wait for a week or two before trying again and things went much better. I finished four windows and set aside the pail after putting a sheet of Sarah wrap on the putty before closing the lid. Three months later I needed to glaze another window but the putty was very dry and not usable. I had to throw away the top couple of inches in the pail and dig out some softer putty at the bottom to finish the job. What caused the drying?

The oil sinks to the bottom during long periods of storage. To prevent those types of issues you could store the tubs upside down, which would keep the oil at the top in between uses.
After the skinning over period and painting, can the window be reinstalled in the winter time? Will it fully cure in cold climate?

You can use hot, soapy water or rubbing alcohol or mild solvent that won't irritate the hands.

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.
