Does garage paint epoxy cure faster in cold or warm temperatures?

I coated my garage with Quikrete Garage Epoxy. I followed the instructions completely. The job turned out to be a real nightmare. It was like trying to paint with mud or taffy. It was cold outside but I warmed the garage and the concrete for hours with a 55,000 BTU turbo heater. I now have my heat pump set at 55 degrees. Now I am concerned that it is not curing correctly. Would this epoxy cure faster in the hot or cold?

I believe concrete should be around 50 to 70 degrees...Read the packaging.If you are trying to warm the floor it might take more than a turbo heater.. Ususally ambient warm temperatures are more appropriate, since concrete holds it temperature for a long time.

The air in your garage might be warm, but what is the temperature of the concrete ? On the epoxy can, should be instructions and the temperature range of the product. Good luck with that.

Almost all paint will cure much faster when it is warm versus the cold.

Listen, this is a project that you want to do one time and one time only, Ambient temp is always critical for all paints, however, the concrete surface temp is just as important. Not sure where you live, but in the midwest the ideal time is late spring thru late fall. Please follow all directions, some manu's will... More
