Spray Foam

I bought one of those spray foam kits (600 board feet) that looks like 2 propane tanks, I am
Using it to seal up the sills on my new foundation.

It's starting to get chilly "up here" and I was wondering what the minimum temperature is to spray the foam? The building is closed in, but not heated, I do have a couple of propane heaters I can use to bring up the temp if need be.

All input appreciated!

What's manufacturer say? Go to their website and look at the product data sheet. That will tell you everything you want to know and more.

They need to be at or near room temperature for a good while. Do not try to just quickly heat them via propane heaters.

Keep them inside a conditioned space for a solid day before using and then use them.

How about the temperature of the actual room I am spraying the foam in? Does it need to be "room temperature" as well?

Thanks for the input!
