What is the cure/dry time for nearly encapsulated Loctite All Purpose Polyseamseal Original Formula (new tube bought at hardware store yesterday)? Does this product dry or cure? Hope I didn't mess up choosing this product given my application.
Our 10+ year old vinyl floor (or linoleum) was glued down with a butt joint against the tub, except it is short/shy by about 1/16. The old caulk is almost gone, and the flooring is peeling up a little bit, but lays back down flat with light pressure.
I bought an aluminum trim strip like the middle one here:
except it's not cove, instead it is a quarter-round profile, something like 3/16 or 1/4" radius.
I passed it over my table saw to cut off the unwanted, leaving just the quarter round piece. It is tiny.
Because it is water based and water-resistant, for better or worse I used the polyseamseal to 'glue' it in place. To keep it clamped in place while curing/drying, I used a half dozen 10' long springy wood sticks to the ceiling corner every 10".
Did the work last night. Looks great today with almost no caulk exposed. Sticks are still in place. But I'm wondering with little air exposure and only possible minimal exposure to the underlayment (possibly none if the vinyl adhesive was spread all the way to the tub), will it dry/cure? and how long will that take? How long should I leave the sticks in place?
If I chose the wrong product, what product would have used?
