    Default Rust Encapsulator Cold Weather

    Hello Eastwood,

    It's cold here now in Virginia, even in my garage!

    What's the lowest temperature that I can use your Rust Encapsulator ?

    It can be around 40 degrees in my garage at night.

    Encapsulator takes up to 12 hours to fully cure at around 68F, so I wouldn't suggest to use it in any temps below 55-60F, and even then the cure time will be more like 24 hours. Like any paint, they like warm temps and cure the best in the 70-75F range.

    Hope that helps!
