Just wondering, do any of y'all up north protect your buckets of mastic from freezing ? I doubt it's good for it but I'm not really sure if it thaws out in good shape or not.

Yes, Davy. It stays in the warehouse until the morning it goes out. Otherwise the texture can go goofy. And cold mastic is hard to use.

I take everything off the truck daily that can freeze. The following items Ive found to behave differently after a freeze/thaw cycle; mastic, liquid water proofing, all caulks, and sealers/cleaners.

I don't use mastic often enough to keep it on my truck all the time but when we do have cold weather I try to unload it and anything else that might freeze. I was wondering what y'all do when it's 5 or 10 degrees out, keep the mastic in the cab while driving to work, etc? May not be a big deal for just an hour or two.

During winters like our last with -40 spurts the truck driver can put freezables up front with him. Otherwise the ride to a job usually isn't enough to freeze anything. On residential most of the material is delivered by the carpenters during demo. It is stored inside the house during winter.
