Hi-Bond Veneer mortar is a zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) mortar, meaning once cured there is no off gassing at all. That’s going to be true for most LATICRETE products.

The Air & Water Barrier can go through a limited amount of freeze thaw cycles, typically 3. We recommend tempering the product back to 70 degrees at least 12 hours prior to application and to stir thoroughly right before being applied. For storage purposes, we always recommend storing at 45 degree min.
