Working Temps for Sealants

Well it is getting colder here in the NorthEast and I haven't gotten around to sealing a few areas that need attention. Are their temperature considerations when using Silkaflex, Parabond, ect? Obviously freezing temperatures would negate the effectiveness of the sealers. What about temperatures in the 50's? Any thoughts? Thanks!

Bob

I want to say that the tubes say to use in the 50's F, but I don't have one either right now.

Most of the stuff I use has a limit in the 50's. I would store in a heated location before you use it as I think that will make applying it easier.
