    Slime & Cold Temperatures

    Does any one have any experience with Slime tubes and the cold temps we have here. Or does the slime just freeze up?

    Never mind, I just answered my own question

    SLiME can be used even in the most extreme conditions. SLiME's boiling
    point is 220F (104.4C) and its freeze point is -30F (-34.4C). SLiME will
    not freeze solid in extreme cold, but the viscosity may increase. As soon as
    the tire is in rotation, friction will create heat and that heat will bring the
    sealant back to its normal viscosity

    Uh ...

    Are you sure you want to use the stuff and carry the extra weight? All the ice and snow seems to do a pretty good job of burying the sharp nasties. It's been a long time since I had a puncture in winter. Unless you're riding in an area with a lot of problems, I'd think twice before using it.

    I was thinking on useing it in my tubes for a homemade stud job. I opted to forgo it and just used a Mr. Tuffy liner instead.
