Winterized Coating Mixes Vs. Summer Mixes

Winterized mixes can be used throughout the year.  However, these versions were developed to be used primarily during the fall and winter months where the area of installation gets below freezing.  
Summer versions are to be used during the spring and summer seasons.  Unlike the winter version they are not acceptable during the fall and winter unless temperatures in the area where it is being used stay well above freezing.  Summer grades typically have a shelf life of 30-90 days and winter grades typically have a shelf life of 30-60 days.  The shelf life is dependent on how the material is stored.  Contact us for more information on storing.
