Hi Jarrett,
Thanks for the response. I did look through the Moeller data sheet you sent; there's much info on it but I do not see anything there about temperature tolerances after it dries (maybe I missed it?) - there is much info that speaks to it in liquid form, which is not helpful; if it is in there, could you please reference the section that it's in?
Thanks again
