I first bought this product in a 3oz tube size as I only neede a small amount. (To lay a narrow bead along the edge of a trailer roof solar panel.). The label says installation is good down to 40 degrees. I was installing it at 50 dgrees, including having the tube in my pocket for a while to wam it up. It would barely flow out of the tube with no taepred nozzle in place, and would not flow at all with tne nozzle in place. I replaced it with the full size tube you put in a sealant gun, and that flowed OK. The product works well and is holding the solar panel down fine. (Side note, if you are spending this much for a full size tube make doubly sure that you have the right color. My first full sized tube was black but I needd white. A little easy to missread the label)

This is the first time I tried this particular product. Seems like it should have been perfect for what I was doing. However, it did not want to come out of the tube no matter how much pressure I applied. Ended up taking nozzle off and still could not get the amount I wanted to use out of tube. Ended up with sticky mess and project that will most have to be redone.

          Researched all the 3M products and descriptions were great. Made selecting the appropriate sealant easy. This is a great sealant to replace the crumbling/missing caulk between my windshield and fiberglass.

                  4000UV works well for deck hatches and other bonding that you may have to remove later. Holds well. Most importantly it does not yellow, so it works great on hatches that are exposed to the sun.

                      Looks and works great for sealing leaks on my boat. The threads for the application cap are not strong enough and stripped while applying.
