Been working remodel since ‘97 and have pushed finishes a few times and seen other contractors do it too. It never works out. The only thing I have been able to push the temp on is the pre-cat lacquers I use. I am able to spray them in my shop at 62° and still get 3 coats on in 1-1/2 hours.

Take the project in the house and let it warm up before you apply the finish. The air temp is not the only factor, surface temp and product temp also make a difference.

I have used Polycrylic before. It doesn’t have an offensive odor that will run you out.
