The external temperature could not be vulnerable and go as low as 35 degrees Fahrenheit because it can cause taking long hours to get settled for the mixture. When it is kept in cold temperatures, it will become vicious, and it will be a tough job to get it installed. So it is important to keep epoxy under controlled temperatures. It is important to make sure that before installing, it is very well cleaned.
