Can we paint in cold weather?


Watch out for the temperatures! The cold polar announced for the weekend and the next requires us to be careful.
Temperatures well below 0 degrees are expected. Take advantage of this cold to move forward or start a new project indoors!

The ideal is to paint between 10 and 20 ° C. Below 10 ° C, the paints dry much more slowly and, below 5 ° C, the water-based paints do not dry at all.
Low cumulative temperatures with high air humidity may also lead to whitish traces on the paint film.
You should also pay attention with epoxy paints and usually with most 2 component water products.
Air currents that are too cold could stop the drying process.
