Q:How soon will it be rain ready?
by|Mar 15, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for the question. OSI QUAD Window, Door & Siding Sealant is a solvent-based product and can withstand light rain almost immediately, under normal exterior applications, assuming the surfaces were clean and dry prior to application. However, it is recommended to allow skin formation of the sealant to occur over a few hours.

    Q:Does it get hard?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for the question. OSI QUAD takes 7 - 14 days to fully cure and this time is dependent on temperature, humidity, and depth of sealant applied. It does not get hard. This product is composed of elastomeric polymers which upon curing form a tough rubber-like seal to resist outdoor weather-related elements.

      Q:Can I use this product to replace the bad caulk in the attached picture? This is where the "frame" around my door meets the exterior of the home. You are looking at what I would call where the flashing around the wood comes up to meet the brick.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for the question but unfortunately, we cannot see your photo. The use of OSI QUAD Sealant is more than likely okay as long as the intended application is not inside the home, and old caulking is removed before applying OSI QUAD. Perhaps if you call our helpline at 1-800-624-7767 and ask to talk with one of the Application Engineers, they can better help you in this situation, to ensure this will work for you.

          A:  Thank you for the question. OSI QUAD Sealant was not designed to be used in this manner and should not be troweled. However, it is possible this intended use of the product can be done and may work for you, as long as the sealant is not encapsulated and is used on an exterior surface. It is important to understand the intended use is out of scope for the product so there are no guarantees.

                    A:  Thank you for the question. The OSI QUAD Sealant is a solvent-based product designed for exterior use only. It is not recommended for use inside occupied living structures. A buildup of solvent vapors can be irritating to the eyes and may affect the nervous system causing dizziness, headache, or nausea. One should always read the caution and warning statements on a product prior to use and if necessary, consult the products safety data sheet.

It is best to place an order with your local retailer.

                          A:  Thank you for the question. Cure time is a moving target depending on the surrounding environmental conditions you have. Under normal conditions (i.e. ¼” inch bead size at 72°F and 70% relative humidity) OSI QUAD Sealant can take 7-14 days or longer for curing.
