Temperatures and Sealants

I understand the importance of having a clean and dry surface for use of parabond/vulkeme...but I need to seal some areas on our "78" ambassador and it is cold here in the Northeast. Does anyone know what the working temperatures should be when applying either of these? Thanks!

I've had no problem with Vulkem down to 50F, and you can go even lower if you take a few precautions. Here's the cold weather application instructions.
As they say at the bottom, moisture cure sealants like Vulkem have been used down to -20F.
