What happened to this product?
I have used this product for years. It is been about 5 years since I've had a project where I needed to use window glazing. The last time I use the product it was amazing. This time it is been the worst product I've ever used. There's way too much oil that they put in it now. It has been over two and a half months and still leaves a fingerprint when I touch it. I've had it indoors and in a nice environment. I went to look for another product and it turns out this is the only one on the market now at any store. I am going to have to find a different product and buy it in stock. As I read through all of these reviews and see the response from the manufacturer is to read the package. I've read the package and still after 7 to 12 days there is no skin forming on any of my window.I'm about to go and do commercial windows again and there's no way I would use this product ever again. This project was only supposed to be out of the window for two weeks. It has been three months now this window has been out of their house because of your product.

Thank you for posting your feedback. Your description of the product's soft consistency (even after almost 2 weeks) would be considered normal. As indicated on the product package label guidance and supporting product literature: "Product Painting 1. DAP '33' Window Glazing must be painted after it has skinned over and attained a firm set. Firm set is typically demonstrated when a light finger touch to the surface does not leave a fingerprint. Firm set may occur in as little as 7 days after application, but more likely 2-3 weeks after application. Painting must be done only after firm set is achieved. NOTE: The glazing compound may still feel soft and may not have full adhesion even after it has skinned over and attained a firm set. Accordingly, sash should be operated carefully for approximately three weeks on the average. Glazing may still be damaged if sash is handled carelessly. Full adhesion will develop within two to four months, depending on job conditions. NOTE: Do not use DAP '33' Glazing on plastic windowpanes, porcelainized steel insulating panels, insulated glass units with an organic seal, stained or leaded glass, any windowpane over 48 inches in any run direction, any metal sash with rabbets over 1¼" wide, composite or composition panels, channel glazing or on any surfaces not prepared as set forth below. Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to DAP's Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.
    Do not buy this product if you live in a humid climate!
    There should be a specific disclaimer on the product that it grows mold if used in a humid climate! I chose this product to restore 22 windows on my 1926 home because of its ease of use. I know the directions say "don't use when it's damp outside" but there should be more specific warnings about what happens if you do. It's never NOT damp here, and most products have the same kinds of warnings, and I had to use something...unfortunately, I found out the hard way that the linseed oil in this product was the perfect breeding ground for a moldy mess. After so much work to restore these windows, I was very disappointed. I'm still dealing with the mold problem and I'm not sure if anything will resolve it. I might have to take it all out and start over from scratch with a different brand.

    Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to hear about your experience with DAP '33' Window Glazing. Based on your description of the product's performance and from what we can see in the photograph that you submitted, it would appear that neither the glazing, not the window sashes have been primed/painted. DAP '33' Window Glazing is not designed, recommended or intended for use as a stand-alone product. As indicated on the product package label guidance and supporting product literature: "Product Painting 1. DAP '33' Window Glazing must be painted after it has skinned over and attained a firm set. Firm set is typically demonstrated when a light finger touch to the surface does not leave a fingerprint. Firm set may occur in as little as 7 days after application, but more likely 2-3 weeks after application. Painting must be done only after firm set is achieved. 2. When painting, use only (i) a high-quality exterior-grade oil-based paint, or (ii) prime with a high-quality oil-based primer and topcoat with a high quality exterior-grade acrylic-latex paint finish. The paint line must overlap onto the face portion of the glass, as well as the bedding area where the sash and glass meet.

          Not recommended-has not cured since August
          This project has been my absolute Nemesis since August once I figured out how to apply it and shape it all was good until now it's November and it still won't dry I used oil based primer on parts of it apparently that weren't dry enough and now it peeled and molded. It doesn't appear as if it's ever going to dry now. I've had them in my basement for in a controlled of environment since then and they absolutely will not dry. Must have gotten a bad batch or something.

            I was blessed to receive a lesson from my father, a British trained journeyman carpenter/cabinetmaker. Roll it in your hands to soften it. That's the most valuable lesson. It's an art form, a bit like golf, the more you do, the more you'll love the exercise. As a pro heritage restoration painter, there is no other choice on the market. Also makes a great filler for nail holes & joints on interior trim. One just needs to take care like any pro should. Not for amateurs who can't recover from a mistake.

              Good product need patients to do a good job
              At first when I was trying to figure how to use this product I got easily frustrated and didn't want to do the job anymore. Although I kept on going and was able finish 10 windows in 3 days. I found it easier to use the putty with latex gloves on because the putty doesn't stick to your hands and it helps you smooth it out. At first I was using a wide putty knife but that didn't work good because it was hard to work in the corners and places like that so I bought the tiniest one they had probably 5cm wide and went to work and it turned out great by the end in my opinion for a first time user. I found when I left the putty in the sun it made it stickier and easier to smooth out. Dry time on the container says 7 to 14 days so you have to be patient with this product. After 3 days of sun about 20 - 28 degrees celius its has a harder top layer but is still soft.Overall I liked this product.

                  best all around glazing
                  I am restoring 39 windows in my 1936 colonial. Way too cost prohibitive to hire out. I've been at it for 2 years; my only experience, I am a lawyer by trade, is with my own windows. I have found DAP 33 "easy" to use and there is a uniform consistency from can to can. Simply work it in your hand, apply and cut it with whatever knife you can work with. I keep a little linseed oil on hand and occasionally lightly coat my knife if I find it dragging. It took a couple windows to improve my technique, but I can do a 6 over 6 in an hour or so. I tried Sher Wms glazing (I use their paint), but too sticky and much harder to work with. Bottom line, if you have some experience, this product works as advertised.

                    Will this ever cure?
                    applied this product over 2 months ago and it still has not cured enough to paint. I will use a different product in the future.

                      I have and would use this product again
                      Window glazing with DAP 33 takes some finesse, but if you practice your technique, you should have very nice results. My only "complaint" is that I don't like the long wait time before I can paint.

                        Like flour and water
                        Had a difficult time applying it, possibly it was "old stock" the consistency was like flour and water and did not adhere well to the glass or oil base primer. I installed to 10 X 32' panes in a door with it. Comes back off very easy regardless of the pressure I used to apply it and it is very soft. I am in my 70's and have done this many times but possibly I missed something. It did get the job done but took three times as long as normal. I hope it sets up a little so I can paint it before the cold weather comes.

                        Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to hear about your experience with DAP '33' Glazing. Based on your description of the product's thick/stiff texture, it would appear that you may have purchase material that is beyond its normal shelf life. As product ages, it will thicken to the point of becoming difficult or impractical to use. At your convenience, please contact DAP's Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information from you and so that we can arrange to provide you with a refund of your purchase price or a replacement product.
                          6 month dry time
                          I've been glazing windows for 6 years now and I'm tired of hanging sashes taking them out later to paint. it's like the job is never done.
