            Q:Can you use the product then after not dries can you use rustoleum spar oil based exterior polyurethane sealers on it?
            by|Sep 22, 2023
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  Thank you for your question. OSI QUAD should not be painted until fully cured. Full cure may take 7-14 days, or longer, depending on ambient conditions and volume of sealant used. Latex paint is recommended, but if using oil based/alkyd paint, a latex primer should be used first. It is the responsibility of the user to conduct on-site testing to determine compatibility and suitable results. Keep in mind, paints are more rigid than sealants and may crack, wrinkle or lose adhesion during sealant movement.
