Re: How cold can you epox

When I've epoxied in the cold, the glass wetted about as well, and the cure times were about the same. You just have to make sure to warm up the resin before mixing, use smaller batches, and use fast hardener. Fast hardener in the cold is the same as slow hardener in the warm.
If you're filleting with flour-thickened goo, wetting isn't a problem, but still you should warm up the resin so it will pump easier and more accurately.
It is ideal to wait for spring or build an insulated workshop. But winters can be long. And I wouldn't even ASK my CFO to budget for a new workshop...my kid and my money go to Miami U.
