What's the lowest temperature that Mas epoxy will set?

I usually use brushes when I epoxy. I fold my glove back over the brush. Then I put it in the freezer. I can use it again the next day. After three days, it has cured like a rock in the freezer. Doesn't matter the brand.

I’m in agreement with Bill, just takes longer. My technique for cool temp epoxy application is keep the epoxy warm, (don’t over do it) mix it in a warm room and let it start to kick off. Then head out to the cold shop to apply it.

I don’t know where you live and Cold is relative, I live in Texas so my technique may not work in your cold.

I have never used MAS but do use East and West System - live in Canada.

With the fastest hardener available I can generally get it to cure as low as about 10C/50F.

The temp can drop below that overnight (a bit) and it still cures but I look for a good three or four hours at (that temp) to allow it to kick off.

If it's under 10C/50F I won't epoxy. Trying to remove unset epoxy is worse than a pain :)

A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)
