I had bought a small bottle of Sumo, urethane glue about 8 months ago and
found a project for it today. I was shocked when I found the bottle to be
firm and, when I opened it the glue was more firm than usual. I got what I
needed and pitched the rest. That was a pretty expensive bottle considering
that I only got one use.
Finally, the question. What IS the shelf life of **unopened** urethane
glue? I had a similar sized bottle of Gorilla Glue and it lasted much
longer even though it had been used and there was air in the bottle. I did
store it on its head but still...
what does the label say? what does the person at the other end of the 800 #
that is on the label say? does the label say how to reconstitute it?
i recently had a tube of ge silicone fail to harden even though it was
before the expiration date. they replaced it for free.
I hadn't thought of an expiration date. The glue went with the trash so,
lesson learned. I am sceptical of refunds since so many of them ask that
you send the product back. I'll check and thanks for a reality check.
Out of curiosity, I see no date on my Gorilla glue but do have a can of
urethane foam that states remainder of product in can after opening may
not be usable after 3 weeks.
I'm still somewhat dismayed about packaging some household products in
plastic. Materials sealed in glass or metal will last much longer
because glass and metal are not permeable.
