The bottle of canopy glue does say to protect from freezing. My layout will be in unheated garage space, and it does get cold in Green Bay. So... if it does get to freezing, does the model simply pop apart? At what temperature? And is Gorilla the best alternative if not canopy glue?
I am sure the notation on the glue bottle refers to the glue in that liquid form. It certainly does not refer to the glue when polymerized and set as an adhesive. I have had some challenging material combinations (etched metal grilles on plastic F-unit locomotives), glued with canopy glue, exposed to freezing temperatures with no problems.
