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.

          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.

          I had used 3M 5200 to caulk the salon windows in my sportfish but it didn't last and I read that this 4000 is the product to use.

                  The nozzle is difficult to use. Won't stay on tube.
                  Hard to squeeze out of tube due to its nature.
                  Save yourself the trouble and buy the caulk gun tube of 4000UV instead.
                  Otherwise the 4000UV is a solid product.

                    Easy to use and clean up. For a long seam, recommend masking edges and using a rounded tool or a gloved finger dipped in mineral spirits to smooth finish before removing tape.

                    I used it to bed my stantions and it worked great. I also used it to bond dividers around my batteries, this stuff forms a VERY tenacious bond. On wood, the wood will break before the 40000UV bond. If you want something sealed or to stay in place, this product does the job well.
