What temperature can you use Thompson's Water Seal?
Regarding this, what temperature does it need to be to seal a deck?
When to Seal Your Deck
- For clear sealer, the deck surface and air temperature must be above 50 degrees Fahrenheit during application and drying time.
- For deck stain, the deck surface and air temperature should be between 50 and 95 Fahrenheit for application and drying.
Furthermore, how long does it take for Thompson Water Seal to dry on concrete? Thompson's WaterSeal normally dries within 24 to 48 hours for recoating, but you should wait at least three days before painting over it.
Additionally, can you use Thompson Water Seal inside?
No Water Seal should not be used before plastering or in any interior applications. Water Seal will not seal a porous surface or act as a bonding agent to increase the adhesion of plaster. Water Seal can only be used on bare and uncoated brick, stone or concrete.
What if it rains after sealing deck?
Rain will damage the finish of any wet sealer with linseed oil or mineral oil in it. Because it forms a coating, it takes several hours to "set up" (dry) and during that time the sealer is vulnerable. If the surface dried enough to touch and the rain was gentle, you may find no problem at all.
