Paint and Caulking in Cold Weather
I am trying to finish doing the foundation work on the floor so that I can starting building the interior. I don't have time to wait for Spring.
Temperatures are going to be around 35F today. I currently have a large space heater in the bus and will be using a blow drier to preheat the metal for the paint. What success have all you had when painting Rustuleum oil based paint in cold weather? This looks of the paint are not the issue, just the integrity. This paint will never been seen.
I will be using the Vulcem 116 polyurethane sealant adhesive to patch the various screw holes in the floor. I tested the adhesive and paint to see if I could paint over it before it cures (times crunch). I know that this sealant adhesive reacts with moisture to dry. I also know that painting over it will reduce the amount of moisture accessible to the sealant. My question is, will the holes in the floor that are open to the air under the bus provide enough moisture to the sealant for it to fully cure after I paint over it?
