We’re stuck on you, even in the cold.

Adhesives are commonly used outdoors, even during the cold weather.

Most of the time you will not run into any problems with the product curing.  However sometimes there are instances where the temperature is just far too cold.  Always check the information on the Tech Data Sheet (TDS) for application temperatures.

We recommend “flashing” the product when applying in the cold.  Flashing is when you press the two substrates (with product on them) together, pull them apart, and then stick them back together.  This activates the adhesive and helps it cure faster.

A caulk warmer bag will also keep your product warm if you are outside for prolonged periods of time.
