does paint freeze ?

I saw some discussion about this on another board,but didnt really find much real information. I keep all my paint and body supplies in my garage,which I only heat while working there. I have never had any problems with my materials that i know of. does paint really freeze or is this an urban legend?

Paint and activators should not be allowed to freeze, or exposed to freezing temps.

I was thinking about that the other day. My conclusion: It is shipped from place to place in the winter in unheated trucks/planes, so it can't hurt it too much. I think as long as it is sealed, it should be fine (unless it is water-based).

I think if it were an issue there would be warnings on the containers. If nothing else there should be a guide about what temperature range to store it in.

Just guessing but "Freezing temperature", as we think of it, applies to water and there should be no water in auto paint unless it is water based so I would think it would have to get really cold to hurt it and maybe not at all? Now how about a water based paint?

Extreme temperature changes are the toughest on opened 2K paint products, expansion/pressure and contraction/vacume will stress the seal and sometimes move air in and out of the container. If enough air is exchanged solvents will evaporate and the moisture within the air will cause hardeners to go bad. Freezing may also cause problems but the few times I've had products in freezing cold storage years ago there wasn't any failures-but these were all 1K products back then.

I won't let my wife read this thread. I keep my garage at a minimum of 65 deg in the winter. I justify the electric bill by showing her the bill for the paint in there. I tell her that it has to be comfortable, or be replaced. She gives in! LOL
