More Information On Using Stan's Sealant At Low Temperatures
A few weeks ago, I looked into the performance of sealants at very low temperatures. I even put some Stan's sealant in the freezer to see what happened. This was definitely more fun than biking outside at zero degrees.
The result was that the sealant appeared to be slushy, but would still probably work. Recently, I read an official response from the Stan's people over at their messageboard. According to Bob Nunnick "The sealant has been used in the Attic[sic] and the Antarctic. Freezing point is minus 30 F".
Now it is not clear how to use sealant in the attic, so I presume he meant the arctic.
So there you go, as long as you stay above -30 F, you should be OK, at least with Stan's.
