Latex Glazing Putty


I just used DAP's latex glazing putty in the tubes on a few jobs. I'm very pleased with how easy it was to apply. I also like that you can paint it in 3 days. But is it going to hold up as well as old DAP 33 ? One thing I hate about the 33 is you are supposed to wait 2 weeks to paint it.

I never waited longer than the time it took me to finish with the putty.

Does it leave as many greasy fingerprints on the glass as 33 does? That's my biggest problem. Maybe I'm just a pig.

I sell White Lightnings tubed glazing and most people that try it like it better than the DAP 33 as well. I also sell UGL Glazol in the quart cans and it beats the snot out of DAP 33 as well. It's a good smooth texture, not nearly so oily as the DAP stuff.

I use to use the UGL [gallons] until I couldn't find it anymore, now I have to use the DAP 33, I hate it. The only good use it has is for glazing in the winter. During the cold temps it works better than the UGL which is to thick to be used easily in the wintertime. I wish I could get it around here (Conn) but I haven't found anyplace that sells it (retail).

Still waiting for some to dry here. Any problems with paint or glaze cracking when paintuing the glaze that quick?

I did prime the glazing on one of the windows after somewhere between 1.5 and 2 weeks. Stuff was still not set really firm.

Yes, it will be a problem, they shrink
at two different rates anyone who's
followed up their work, or gives a
crap would know that.
Not speaking about you boman,
you are asking.
Shows you care.

Re: Latex Glazing Putty


I haven't glazed a window in ages, but kneading the 33 was one of my many childhood jobs (and we did a lot of window, guess the old man didn't want greasy hands), I hate that crap, and plumbers putty (the old man used to get mad when I'd make Putty Man out of the putty) as well, though not as bad. If you don't want greasy hands from the 33 just have a kid.

I sorta like the smell of 33, though. Brings back certain fond memories. The Yankee Candle people need to make a candle that smells like 33. There's a good PhotoShop idea for you.

It's funny you say that, my father has been dead for many years but smells like plumbers putty, glazing putty and others that I don't smell that often that we used when we worked together remind me of him. I like the smell of silage, similar reasons. Don't like the smell of burning hair or eyebrows.

It will crack regardless. That's why they make it.

I always follow my work. My grandfather now dead lived within a mile of 75% of the homes he painted, ad he taught me to paint at 3 years old. I can still see his work everytime I go to my grandmohers house, and never noticed any exessive cracking.

But what did he know? He was only in buisness from 1948 until the day he died, and he probibly painted 100% of the houses he did 7 or 8 times.


Edit: Well more 4 or 5 times.

And when we painted with lead and oil
you could go right over fresh glazing.

Your funny.

Keep in mind seldom have I attempted to paint, and glaze in the same day? Glazing is pretty time consuming for me unfortunately. I might have, but I don't remember ever atempting to paint while the glazing was too soft to apply the brush.

Re: Latex Glazing Putty


I used the tubes on a job last year I had three casement windows with a total of 180 lites and 3/4's of them the glazing had to be replaced. So I tried the tubes for the first time. now I have done allot of windows in 28 years, I had figured it would take me around 5 days to remove and replace glass that was cracked(9lites) and old glazing and then use 33 by hand, I seen the tubes and asked one of the guys at the local Hardware store about it, he told me it was new to him, I bought a case, I did all those window lites in two days. That stuff is nice. threw my glazing knife in the back of the tool bag.

Re: Latex Glazing Putty


I have the same question as Philly Dude, but I have spent the last 15 minutes reading moronic comments about the smell of putty and other crap. If you aren't able to answer the question, then open another beer and watch tv. I am restoring 13 double sash leaded glass windows that need to be reglazed and repainted. I too would rather use latex reglazing in a tube rather than messy putty that takes 2 weeks to cure - and you cannot paint wet putty as some idiot said. My question is also about the durability of latex glazing putty vs. oil. I certainly don't want to do this job again in three years. I basically don't have much choice really because I am not about to have windows lying around for 2 weeks before I can paint them, and then waiting again for the paint to dry. But I would like to know about this product's characteristics before I use it. The only comments I have seen ramble on about leaving fingerprints on the window and other nonsense that NO ONE CARES ABOUT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE EXPERIENCE OR REPUTABLE EVIDENCE AB SO OUT THE LONG TERM PERFORMANCE OF THIS PRODUCT, THEN DON'T WASTE MY TIME SHARING YOUR IGNORANCE, OK?

Re: Latex Glazing Putty


This won't help much but the latex glazing in a tube shrinks and does not look like putty you knead and knife in. At least not the kind I used, it held up well on the half rotting wobbly storm windows, but strength being the issue, wish I had just used ordinary caulk which may not look nice but at least it doesn't wiggle and fall out. Too bad you couldn't caulk and then return to putty. Everyone will be looking at the lead glass anyhow, that I imagine heats up and contracts plenty more than just glass. If you use the latex putty it will look like caulk really and you would need to do it twice to get it thick enough. I'd say it is a product that came too late to make a difference and used too little to be worthy of complaining about except that it is water based so you can cover it with latex paint but then so is caulk.
