Frozen Thompson Water Seal.... still work?


Hey all; I have about 2 gallons left out of 5 from my Thompson Water Seal can, but it has sat out for the winter. Will it still be good to spray on the deck and the fence? Don't really want to spend the money again, but don't want to resurface my deck either!

Cheers!

Thompsons is nearly worthless before freezing, it can't be much worse now

I'd be remiss if not to mention:

From what I know about this product, there should not be a problem if you were to use thawed-out frozen product...shake it well first.

That is a technical answer and has nothing to do with perceived value of the product for the particular application you might have in mind.

FYI for the original poster. We really aren't kidding. Thompson's really is horrible stuff. Even those folks that aren't very good at testing coatings, Consumer Reports, no longer even bothers to test the stuff after it consistently was at the bottom of their tests (e.g., not worth the can it is packed in) every time they decided to test deck finishes.

wow, no kidding! I knew it was 'consumer grade', but I didn't realize the industry regarded it that way!

Well I'll have to do some shopping around for the stuff I use next year
