Storage & re-use

  • Cure product before disposal
  • Store in a cool place.
  • The adhesive should be used within 6 months after opening.
  • If the adhesive is going to be used again within a few days, leave the nozzle on and merely extrude approximately 2 cm of product before storing the cartridge upright. This will cure to a plug which can easily be pulled out when required.
  • For longer storage periods, leave the nozzle on and place a piece of plasticene or Blu Tack over the end of the nozzle. Tightly tape a piece of aluminium foil over the whole nozzle to exclude any air.
  • When you want to re-use the product, simply take off the foil and plug from the old nozzle pull out the excess adhesive from the nozzle with a corkscrew, then re-pierce any cure at the tip of the cartridge and re-use.
  • If cure has taken place into the cartridge, the product is unlikely to be in a useable state and should be disposed.
