The data sheet says to protect from freezing but doesn't say if it ruins it if it does freeze. I would test it, mix part A and B while they are still in their bags by squeezing the bag back and forth. Then barely cut the corner of each bag and pour a little into a small container, like half of a pill bottle. Mix equal parts together and then just enough powder, (part c) to thicken it up. Mix it on a paper plate of piece of card board and let it set a few hours. Depending on the air temps, it should start to firm up after an hour or two and get fairly hard after 6-8 hours. Should be real hard in 12 -16 hours.

Regarding the silicone caulk, it will hold up in a wet area whereas latex acrylic won't. Outside of a dry area the latex will work.

I think you'll have to check with Laticrete on your most recent question. I have a feeling you won't like their answer.

Not much of a question here just wanted to share a quick update. I finished the shower floor and I'm very pleased with the results. After ditching my marble selection on the advice of this forum I settled on a 3/4" ceramic mosaic with the tiles laid diagonally on the mesh.

Little did I know that this would be a very difficult choice because the sheets just did not want to line up. I laid the whole thing dry to line up my kerdi drain and thought for sure this would be a total disaster. Once I cemented them down I was even more certain that I would be able to see the sheets.

I used Spectralock pro premium grout to finish the job. For all the bad reputation of epoxy grout I found it rather easy and satisfying to work with. Perfect color match and stain proof! Anyway here is the final result:
