Dacrylate HS Polyurethane will cure at temperature down to 0°C, however at temperatures below 15°C, the base and hardener will thicken considerably and affect application characteristics. At low ambient temperatures we would advise that base and hardener are warmed separately to 20°C before use to ensure optimum application properties.
