Temperature Considerations

Temperature Considerations

• Sealant applications should be done when temperatures are above 40°F, whenever possible.

• When applying sealants below 40°F, see Pecora Technical Bulletin #65 for cold weather application guidelines.

• Installing sealants above or below a median temperature may cause unsatisfactory outcomes such as the sealant joint exhibiting a raised center (“breadloafing”) or an excessive concave profile
