    Q:I'm looking for a vertically used product to seal between cedar siding boards on our addition. Can this accept solid colored stain, if that is how I colored my siding?

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. Tremco polyurethane sealants and Tremflex 834 latex sealant accept paints and stains, however the sealant must be fully cured before such applications. Coating over the sealant before it cures restricts and/or inhibits the sealant from curing and may also adversely affect the coating. Sealant cure time is dependent upon the size and shape of the joint, humidity, and the exterior temperatures, the colder the temperature, the slower the cure. A generally acceptable cure time at 72ºF and 50% RH is 7 to 10 days for polyurethane and latex sealants. It must be understood that Tremco sealants are elastomeric in nature, enabling them to extend and compress within a construction joint. Most paints are designed to be applied to hard, non-moving surfaces and do not match the elastomeric properties of sealants. Because sealants are soft and will extend and compress, if the paint film does not move in an identical manner to the sealant, the paint may crack and peel. Tremco makes no representations or warranties regarding the compatibility and/or adhesion of paint films to Tremco sealants. It shall be the responsibility of the applicator of a particular coating applied over a Tremco sealant to take whatever measures necessary, including testing, to ensure compatibility and adhesion of the paint with the Tremco sealant. Please contact Tremco Technical Service at 866-209-2404 or visit https://www.tremcosealants.com/contact/ and complete the contact form with any questions regarding this guidance.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. Vulkem 116 is a thick/heavy-bodied paste, designed for application to open joints. The viscosity of this product would not permit it to be "injected".

            While residing my home with Hardie Siding I was looking at caulking for the edges. Hardie recommends a polyurethane sealer so I chose this Vulkem 116. Other than the lengthy time it took to be delivered to my local Home Depot, I have been very impressed with the sealant itself. Applies normally, in warmer weather I painted it the next day and the paint covered it perfectly. It's appearance seems a little grainy which is fine with siding and exterior trim boards, but I'm not sure I would use it on smooth services like indoor trim.
