Does POLYESTER resin dry really slowly if it's cold?

it's around 45 degrees f at my house, I'm molding a fiberglass paddle.I'm using this stinky polyester resin to wet-out. On the back it says if it's 70-80 degrees use 12 drops of hardener per fl oz, but it's only 45 degrees and I still used 12 drops, will it still work just work slower?


It was a popular style during the late 70's, then it became trendy again during the early 90's. At present that style is not mainstream or trendy, but, since it was popularized by the punk, I suppose that it might still be popular among the neo-punk, perhaps the EMO's, etc.
Projects like yours are difficult to estimate without knowing all the details: things like location, accessibility, depth of bury, cause of failure, type of material and number of connections or fittings, all play a role in preparing a proposal. Therefore it’s difficult to evaluate your specific quote. I can talk about solving your pipe problem. Replacing the pipe is one option, but there are a couple of different in-place pipe repair techniques that could save you time as well as money. One option, pipe bursting, involves bursting your existing pipe from within while pulling a new pipe through the space to replace the old one. This is one possibly viable solution to your problem, there are several including a cured-in-place lining. Many local plumbers offer this technology and can prepare a proposal for you at no cost. I'd recommend getting at least 2-3 bids so you can compare prices.
