outside application


ill be putting final coat of latex based paint on a wood fence tommorow when outside temps are 55 -60, as done with primer a day ago, and first coat today. .Does the fact that outside tempts will be 29 at night but 50ish in day play a factor in curing properly? in 2 more nights it will be down to 18,26 ,but i have had good tempts when i applied it .Humidity is low and about 6 -7 hours of sun on it in day.
I have to get this done and its rare to have had this many good days to have been able to clean it prime and paint it before weather changes back..im not sure if its the low temp resisitant paint but i will look at that also.its benjamin more.
Any info is appreciated

Most paint companies make low temp paint. Hopefully you have used a low temp paint. Personally I don't like to be painting anytime the temps are gonna be below freezing at any point in the drying/curing process. It's just not worth the risk. That being said, if you have to get it done, well, you have to geterdone!

I think you need to have short work days so the paint will have a chance to at least dry some before the temp falls too low also a fast dry paint would help. I don't know if adding Japan dryer to the paint would help or not maybe Ric will help.

Colder temps slow the cure, even though some top quality products for exterior cure down to 35 degrees F. If the product is tinted , especially dark, it slows down the cure even more. Your window is shorter, and the probablilty of blistering and peeling may happen, maybe not.
