Necessary to paint/seal Great Stuff?
 
Hi folks, I've tried to find an answer on the forums but haven't been able to. I'm building a viv and will be using GS for some hardscape. Some will be hard to paint. I figure GS is polyurethane and ought to be inert. It is absolutely necessary to seal it if it won't be visible?

Thanks in advance!

Should be fine as long as you give it time to cure. I almost always have great stuff exposed on the bottom of my backgrounds. Its a waste of time and supplies to cover something that will be buried in substrate. Best of luck on your build!

Thank you for your quick response! The build is going slowly and methodically.

While it may be a waste of time, there is peace of mind to consider. I have always covered/sealed 100% of GS backgrounds with proven safe silicone or other safe materials.

Its been years since I used GS or other background materials, other than the titebond method or tree fern panels so; Iím probably not the one to respond here. However, there is always peace of mind to consider.
