Hi - as it is a bit nippy at the moment,I have all my pva,other glues,and paint in the house as pva/latex etc is prone to frost-damage (although so far,my Frostwatcher is managing to keep the workshop at or above 5c)

But just started to wonder - are there any other materials/polishes/finishes I should be keeping warm ?

Hi Andrew

As a general rule, anything water based should be protected from frost. This includes emulsion paints and acrylic products (including ours).
Otherwise, most other products as far as I know are not affected by cold during storage, although cold and damp will affect application.

Hope this gives some help

Thank for that,Terry.

I just started to wonder when the groundnut oil on my kitchen started turning cloudy with the cold.. :shock:
