Default Will Freezing Temperatures Effect Titebone And Other Materials??

Winter is coming, even down here Texas we will most likely get a few days of freezing weather. I have to wonder what damage the cold weather will do to such things as my Titebond glue, both II and III. Also, what about finishs such as Tung Oil?

When I talk about cold weather in my area I'm talking about temperatures at the lowest of 15 degrees which is not cold at all, but I'm still wondering about it. Probably the information is on the label but I prefer to ask member of the forum because their experience is, in my opinion, a better source.

For exterior use, the Construction Adhesives are amazing. You can glue wet wood, pressure treated, frozen wood, etc.
What it isn't is pretty...or precise. !/8" gap? No problem!

Titebond - Product
SmartBond Subfloor Construction Adhesive - DAP

Sorry, I know that wasn't exactly what you were asking, Jerry, but it's the route I'd go for anything exposed to weather and cold.

they don't do cold well at all...
make a carry tray and take them inside or build ya warming box from a cooler and a heating pad inside of it set to low...

Reckon it will freeze in an unheated, uninsulated shop like Rick's? Sorry, Rick, the devil made me do it.

Do you have a thermometer in your shop? My "shop" is my attached 2 car garage and I live a ways north of you in Oklahoma. I have a metal insulated door that faces south and it rarely gets below 32. The sun heats that metal door and radiates enough heat in the day to keep it up above freezing for the most part. I do have a propane radiant heater to keep it there during the really cold snaps and when I'm actually working out there.

But I keep my finishes and glues indoors because in the summer I have the opposite problem, it'll hit 100 in there every day. So I just keep them in the utility room cabinet inside.

I use TBIII to glue cork rings for custom fishing rods. Been building for 8 years and haven't had any problems. However, I wouldn't expose the glue or any other liquid or semi-liquid to freezing temperatures.
Note: I just went into my shop and looked at the bottle. It says, in bold letters, "Keep From Freezing."

I buy my Titebond III from the local Ace hardware but they don't stock III so it has to be special ordered. The Ace truck is loaded the night before deliver and Ace makes no provisions to keep all the glues from freezing. I stock up in the fall so I don't have to buy glue in the winter. I have four gallons on hand now and that will make it thru the winter. I know this didn't answer your question Jerry but it is something to plan for ahead of time.

Keep your glues and finishes inside.
