    Default Gasket maker - application temps?

    Title says it all. What temperature ranges are you guys good with when applying gasket makers?

    I've used "The Right Stuff" down into the 50s and had it hold fine. I don't have more formal information than that... sorry.

    My only heat source in the garage is a salamander. Definitely would freeze over night.

    As I read it, Permatex Right Stuff Black can be put into service immediately - doesn't need 24 hours to fully cure before being put in use like many gasket makers need; so in theory I wouldn't expect it needs to be kept at cure temp overnight.
    -- Tundra (yes, really my name, not my truck!) - KC1DQY

    Wheezy Chicken - 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Sport S - not stock any more - Schoolbus Yellow (er, 'Dozer')
    Old Swampy - 1952 Willys MD (aka M38A1 aka G758) - in my he-shed undergoing the lengthy process of renovation/reassembly into mostly stock form - will return to the currently available reproduction of the original Olive Drab and US Army markings eventually

    I have used black Permatex at temps closer to low teens and blowing snow without problems. Well itís a bit stringie at temps like that so you get it all over the place.
