            A:  This is superior caulk. Lasts decades. It is designed for exterior use (meaning it can tolerate elements). There is no reason you cannot use it inside. It's not like its going to hurt you. It justs costs more as it is made to tolerate the elements.

                        Q:Is it stainable?

                        Answer This Question

                        A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. Tremco polyurethane sealants 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.

                          A:  Hi Ted, Tremco Vulkem 116 Polyurethane Sealant is paintable once the sealant has fully cured. It is recommended to test on a scrap piece first to ensure compatibility prior to use. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

                                      A:  Rust-Oleum Tremco Vulkem 116 Polyurethane Sealant is designed for use on exterior applications but can be used on interior applications with proper ventilation. The depth of sealant may be equal to the width of joints that are less than 1/2” wide. For joints ranging from 1/2” to 1” (13mm to 25mm) wide, the sealant depth should be approximately one-half of the joint width. You will want to ensure the surface is dry at the time of application and allowed to fully cure. Please give us a call at 844-888-0482 if needing further assistance. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
