Does PVC cement freeze and ruin??


Before I do a critical job here,,whats the real scoop on Oatey PVC cement?? Does it get ruined when it freezes?? It wasnt too cold here,,left in a pickup by mistake,,,only 20 BELOW last week.

Primer not a factor since there is so much alcohol in it is my guess

I think so. We bring everything like that in when it gets cold.

I think the question should be

If it freezes...is it still OK to use after it thaws out ?

Oh wait...that is the title of the thread

The label states to store and use at temps between 40 and 110 degrees, and not to use if the glue is jellied at all. I have had it go bad in the can, even when stored between the recommended temps. If it is a critical job, I would spend the money and buy a new can. nothing worse than redoing a job.

Use Rectorseal "Arctic" 616 PVC glue if you're working in a cold area.
