Will this epoxy eventually cure?

I'm ready to glue the decks to the shear clamps of my CH-16 LT. Let's say I mix up a batch of epoxy using MAS slow hardener and the temperature in the garage is around 50 degrees F. As the day warms up, the temperature in the garage increases to about 60 degrees F, but at night the temperature drops back down into the mid 40s F. Will the epoxy eventually cure without using a heat source?

Thank you,

Mark

RE: Will this epoxy eventually cure?

The epoxy will cure, but it will take a long time.  This step is a pretty important one and if it were me, I would put a space heater in the garage overnight.  You don't want to assume the epoxy is cured too soon and have a problem with the deck.  At 40 degrees slow epoxy could take a couple of weeks to cure.
