I was once told by a More's rep that they build into the paint the ability to be frozen once. They still ship paint by truck in the winter and realize that it may freeze.

That being said, I still would not use it.......

I keep a bunch of paint in my shop and it freezes every winter, I think. Mixed up several batches for projects around the house. Haven't had a failure yet.

Why do you have a bunch of paint left over?

Would you use on a client project? I've used paints "around the house" that I would never sell to a client.

Depending on the product, they have a 3 freeze cycle. Bring it inside, let it thaw on its own, dont speed it up. Stir it well, if it looks fine, chances are it is. If it looks like cottage cheese, pitch it.

It also depends on how hard the freeze was. If it froze solid, probably no good.

You guys all worry too much. Im not saying let your paint freeze become a habit or anything....just dont immediately assume its junked.

Same here, if it looks like cottage cheese, it's gone.
Same as if it stinks, it's gone too, w/based that is.

Would you use it on your own interior walls? If you wouldn't, scrap it. If you wouldn't but are near Ewing... give it to him to tosh his home out in it smiley winkey thing!!!

I assume that the full review will be on your site soon, just as soon as you finish the review on the new Kiltz paint.

I agree that the paint can take a couple freeze cycles, I also agree with NC that if it froze solid then it is probably gone.

Kind of early for me to be worrying about what needs to be brought in, 75 today.

I have also seen warehouses that would freeze as well. There is no telling what has happened to the paint we buy. I would shake and strain it and see.

What happens to latex when it freezes that is so bad?
